Rumoured campers include:

1. McFly's Tom Fletcher

He appeared on the show last year but left after just three days following the revelation he'd been taking steroids before the competition.

4. TV presenter Carol Vorderman
A source told The Sun: "She is well-known and still carries a lot of sex appeal. ITV chiefs are also hoping that she will be the brains of the camp."

5. Politician Nigel Farage
An insider told The Sun: "Farage is keen to appear on reality TV but he is asking for far too much money."

22. Geordie Shore star Sophie Kasaei
Sophie remained coy when we asked her about this rumour last week: "Who knows? Fingers crossed, but I'd love to do any reality TV shows."

23. Absolutely Fabulous actress Helen Lederer
An insider told The Sun that Helen turned down a Celebrity Big Brother offer in favour of the jungle.

24. Olympic boxer Nicola Adams

25. Model Lauren Hutton (Made In Chelsa's Spencer Matthew's ex)

26. TOWIE star James 'Arg' Argent
We're not quite sure where this rumour started, other than perhaps the fact a TOWIE star has been on the show many a year!

29. Love Island star Zara Holland
This rumour surfaced when Zara hinted she was working with ITV on a new show.

30. Homes Under The Hammer star Martin Roberts
A source told The Sun: "They're hoping Martin will draw in the housewives' vote and think his quick wit and fun side will really come through on the show."

One person who is NOT going in is Geordie Shore's Charlotte Crosby, who randomly tweeted that she was entering the jungle, only to clarify it was a joke…

They're all ready to deliver must see live Entertainment every night directly after the ITV show."

Former Geordie Shore star Vicky was last year's Queen of the Jungle so well equipped to talk about goings on in camp.

"I can't wait to work alongside Chris, Joe and Stacey, who are all brilliant," she said. "I'm dying to get back in the jungle and hopefully they'll still let me give some of the trials a go! We can't let the camp mates have all the fun now can we?!"

Meanwhile, it marks Stacey and Joe's first presenting job as boyfriend and girlfriend!

Stacey won series ten, while Joe triumphed in series eight.
