The blonde reality star took to Twitter to shoot down speculation she's packed her bikinis and is getting ready to jet to Australia for the ITV show.
Kate tweeted: "OMG I've seen lots of press saying I'm going into the jungle. Unfortunately it's not true. I would love to go into the jungle however my focus right now is on @OnlyWayIsEssex."
It had been widely rumoured that Kate was among this year's I'm A Celebrity cast and had even been open to a jungle romance following her split from co-star Dan Edgar.
If Kate had been heading to the jungle, she wouldn't have been the first TOWIE star to swap Brentwood for the bug infested camp.
Mark Wright finished second in the 11th series, while Joey Essex was 4th in series 13, and Ferne McCann came 3rd in series 15. Gemma Collins, meanwhile, famously quit the 14th series after just a few days.
As always, ITV refuses to confirm or deny rumoured names linked the jungle, instead making us all wait for the official cast announcement. That should be coming soon, however, as the new series starts next week!
Ant & Dec kick things off with the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here 2016 launch show on Sunday, 13 November at 9pm and we CANNOT WAIT!
Celebrities linked to the show include Geordie Shore's Sophie Kasaei, Frankie Bridge's footballer husband Wayne, actor Larry Lamb and Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews, who withdrew from the last series after just three days.
