Kevin Clifton already has his eye on a particular celebrity for Strictly Come Dancing - find out who!
© @Copyright HELLO! Hello! Magazine Jamie Laing has opened up about being forced to leave Strictly Come Dancing after scoring a foot injury, and joked that he wanted to "do them all" when Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield offered him potential stints on Dancing on Ice and I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! instead.
Chatting on This Morning on Wednesday, he explained that he noticed he had hurt himself during the launch show, saying: "I jumped up and slid… into the wonderful Oti and as I hopped up like a jack in the box, it felt like something had hit me from the back… And I said, 'Oti I feel like something has happened to my foot,' and she said, 'Dance!' And being British, you just smile and carry on with the whole thing."

He revealed that he visited four specialists to try to find a solution to the "nasty tear", adding: "I went to four different specialists for someone to say, 'It's going to be okay but they said, 'It's not going to be alright.' […] It's quite upsetting. When you're in a show like that, and you make friends with everyone, to have it taken away from you, it's pretty upsetting."

Although his time on Strictly might be over (for now!), Phil joked that his foot would be recovered just in time for Dancing on Ice, saying: "Well eight weeks, you can skate?" He added: "Is the jungle coming up?" Jamie replied: "Hey, there we go… Let me do all of them!"

It might be a few months away, but now that we've seen Ant and Dec back together on Britain's Got Talent The Champions, we're also excited to see them on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, so much so that we are already checking out who we might see in the jungle this year. Here are all of the celebrities who are rumoured to be taking part… Alan Halsall The Coronation Street actor teased fans in September when he shared a photo of himself on Instagram, posing in a woodland area, wearing hiking boots and all. It was Alan's caption that sent fans into a frenzy as he wrote: "........it's a jungle out there." The 37-year-old added a caterpillar emoji as well as a winking face emoticon. His fellow Corrie star Ryan Thomas seemed to confirm that Alan is heading Down Under, as he replied: "Can't wait to see you in the jungle congratulations mate."

Maura Higgins Ever since becoming a fan favourite on Love Island thanks to her straightforward (and frankly hilarious) personality, fans have been calling for her to enter the jungle on I'm a Celebrity, where she would most certainly mix things up! Her family also want her to do the reality show, as her sister Becki told The Independent: "There is so much lined up for her but I would love to see her on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, if I could pick her. She would be terrified, but class on it — she'd be effing and blinding."
Gemma Collins Gemma might have struggled in the jungle back when she went on in 2014, quitting after just a few days of jungle life, but the GC reckons she will change her ways should she be given another opportunity to appear on the show. Chatting about the series, she explained: "Looking back, I don't feel I was ready for that show. I've got a tougher skin now, and I think that's where The GC came into play. If they asked me back, yes I'd go back." Of course, Gemma caused plenty of drama during her stint on Dancing on Ice, we can only imagine her when confronted with some of those terrifying Bush Tucker trials!
Danny Dyer Danny appears to have a very 'never say never' attitude to I'm a Celebrity, as he admitted on Good Morning Britain that the idea wasn't off the cards, joking: "You know me Piers, I've done a bit of reality TV." Since his daughter, Dani Dyer, also took part in Love Island, and the pair subsequently appeared on the celebrity version of Gogglebox, perhaps they'll go on the show as a father and daughter duo? We hope so!
Nadiya Hussain We know who would be in charge of cooking if this Great British Bake Off star was around! Nadiya previously told Lorraine that she'd love to take part, explaining: "I'd love to do the jungle though, if I was offered. I like being dirty and mucky and like the idea of living in the outdoors, flying out the planes. I wouldn't mind that [cooking for camp]. I don't know what I would do with rice and beans! There is something about being in the jungle that really excites me." Watch this space!
Ulrika Johnson Why hasn't Ulrika done I'm a Celeb yet? The star already has Dancing on Ice and Celebrity Masterchef under her belt, but we think she'd be amazing in the jungle! According to sources, the 51-year-old thinks that "the time is right" for the challenge. Either way, we'd love to see her take on a Bush Tucker trial!
Frankie Bridge Frankie husband Wayne had to go in the jungle back in 2016, and his stint made Frankie realise that she'd also be up for it! Speaking about his jungle adventure, she said: "I think now Wayne’s done it and he loved it and he said he would do it again, it kind of makes me feel positive that I would enjoy it."
Georgia Steel Georgia might be a great contestant to have in the jungle, she's so loyal babes! The Love Island star has admitted that she'd really like to be invited onto the show, and if it's anything like the popular ITV2 show, she'll definitely stir things up! Speaking about potentially going into the jungle, she said: "I would love an opportunity like that as I think it would be amazing. Very scary though. Of course, anything is possible."
Alexandra Cane It might well be a Love Island reunion, as Alexandra has also admitted that she'd love to give I'm a Celebrity a go. She said: "I know I'm A Celeb don't like Love Island people but I'm determined! I will go on that show because I love everything they get involved in. I love a bit of danger. I love snakes and I don't mind spiders so I think I'd be really good on the show. I'd win everyone meals in the camp. Lara Croft vibes!"
Jamie Laing Since Toff became Queen of the Jungle, maybe it's time for a Made in Chelsea star to pick up the mantle! We know that Jamie is a big fan of taking part in reality shows, and has previously starred in Celebrity Hunted and Celebrity Game Night. It was also reported that he was in talks to join the show back in 2018, so could I'm a Celeb finally be the next project on his list?
Rahul Mandal Well someone needs to do the cooking! Rahul stole the hearts of the nation in the Great British Bake Off tent, and we think the winner of the competition could certainly be a brilliant addition to the jungle! The camp mates will probably love their rice and beans once Rahul has had a chance to make them into a baking masterpiece!
Rosie Marcel The producers of the show really want this Holby City actress to take part in the show, as Rosie has revealed she has been asked about it a few times before! So will 2019 be her year? Chatting on Loose Women, she said: "I've had a couple of meetings. I have spoken to them, it is something I would love to do actually. I think for me it would be an amazing challenge."
Stephanie Waring The Hollyoaks actress has tried out Dancing on Ice, and now she's ready to swap her ice skates for jungle boots! Chatting to Manchester Evening News, she said: "I've always wanted to do the jungle, I'm scared of everything but I'd like to be in Australia. There are no pressures from the outside world, no TVs and no phones and I think it's a real test of inner strength which has always appealed to me."
Lucy Fallon The Coronation Street star has previously revealed that she would love to have a go on the show, and told the Daily Star: "I think I’d be good at the jungle. I like to challenge myself and that’s the most challenging show you can do."
