All Of The Most Unlikely A-List Friends On Instagram

  All Of The Most Unlikely A-List Friends On Instagram Adele and Nicole Richie? Jennifer Aniston and Ed Sheeran? Stranger things have happenedCase in point: over the weekend, Adele took to Instagram to share a funny belated birthday post for Nicole Richie. Did you know the two were friends? No, we didn’t either — but looking at the silly pictures and videos Adele shared, it’s safe to say this isn’t a new friendship.

Ant & Dec star in a brand-new trailer for the upcoming series of I ' m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! This year's series will come from stunning Gwrych Castle in North Wales rather than its usual New South Wales location in Australia.

Coronavirus might have completely destroyed our summer TV viewing. (Love Island, we're looking at you). But luckily, this autumn, things are starting to get slightly more normal on the small screen. And thankfully - after moving the show from Australia to the UK - I'm A Celebrity is still happening, with the show being filmed at a revamped Gwrych Castle in Wales instead of a soaring hot jungle.

Now the show is edging closer, we're just waiting for the full list of names to be revealed. And today it's been reported in The Sun that BBC journalist and presenter Victoria Derbyshire has signed on the dotted line to be taking part in bushtucker trials. ‘Victoria is always game for a challenge so when she was approached for I’m A Celebrity she jumped at the chance,’ a source told the paper.

They continued: 'It’s always something she’s wanted to do but because of her family she’s never wanted to fly to Australia and be away from them for so long. When the show moved to Wales and the opportunity came up, she didn’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth so said yes straight away.’

It's unknown just how much the presenter will be taking home for appearing on the series, but last year Caitlyn Jenner was paid a whopping £500,000 and it was reported that Kate Garraway and Jacqueline Jossa earned around £75,000.

Victoria will certainly be in good company anyway. Rumoured contestants for this year's Wales edition include Jessie J, Corrie's Lucy Fallon and Selling Sunset's Christine Quinn.

Hey all you cool cats and kittens. Carole Baskin has apparently been offered 'big money' to parachute into the jungle, according to The Sun. Somehow, we think Big Cat Rescue's Carole would thrive in the jungle. And if anyone can bring flower crowns back in style, it's her.

Jessie J

The singer, who once famously won the Chinese version of X Factor, has reportedly been offered a large Price Tag (sorry) to jet to Australia. We reckon she wouldn't be able to stop singing and that she'd give us all the goss about Channing Tatum. So sign her up.

Paul Merson

The former England footballer, who recently revealed he was struggling with a gambling addiction, has apparently been offered a slot on the show. 'Paul is really keen to relaunch his TV career and thinks this is the best way to do it after he's seen what it has done for his mate Harry Redknapp, but he needs it to be worth his while and is negotiating for a top price,' a source told The Sun. Makes sense.

Charles Ingram

It wouldn't be the first TV show the Ingrams have appeared on after the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire cheating scandal, but Quiz has put Charles and Diana back into the public eye - so Charles would be a big win for ITV bosses. In fact, we're not the only ones who think so, as bookies have given him odds of just 3/1.

Carole Baskin standing in front of a fence: ITV will soon be treating us to a brand new series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and although the series will look very different this year, it already looks set to be a big hit with viewers.   Ant and Dec and a bunch of famous faces will be heading to Gwrych Castle, Abergele in Wales, to undertake gruelling trials and fun-filled challenges. But who exactly will be camping out in the castle?  Although the line-up is yet to be officially announced, we're already wondering which famous faces will be taking part this year. Check out some of the rumoured contestants below...  MORE: Ant McPartlin admits he never asked Holly Willoughby about her I'm a Celebrity stint     Carole Baskin  Those of us who tuned in to watch Netflix's Tiger King earlier this year will be familiar with Carole Baskin as the zoologist enemy of Joe Exotic.  Carole was known for her quirky ways and memorable catchphrases, so we can't help but think she'd be a highly entertaining addition to the line-up. Ant and Dec responded to reports that Carole was joining after appearing on This Morning last month.  Holly Willoughby exclaimed to the presenters:

Vernon Kay

ITV have reportedly been trying to get the Bolton TV presenter in the jungle for two years. And they might sway it this year, as he's apparently been offered an eye-watering £250,000. An insider told The Mirror: 'Everyone's so pleased to have Vernon on board, he's a lovely guy, full of down-to-earth northern charm and perfect for the show.'

AJ Pritchard

Curtis Pritchard's older brother has reportedly been approached for the show, too. The former Strictly pro has spoken about it before on The Steph Show, teasing: 'Well, let me put it like this, I've just cleaned out the loft as my mum has a list of jobs for us to do. The amount of spiders up there, I was screaming my head off. So, if anything like that did happen, it would be hilarious – that's for sure!'

Beverley Callard

The Coronation Street legend was, according to The Mirror, the first celebrity to be signed up for this year's series... So, will we be voting for her soon?

Lucy Fallon

Another former Corrie favourite, Lucy was rumoured to be heading into the jungle last year. With Jacqueline Jossa taking the crown last year, we can imagine bosses are keen to get another young soap star in a hat and cargo trousers.

Eric Cantona

Another football star has apparently been top of ITV's list, with The Sun reporting show producer Richard Cowles saying, 'I just like the idea of Eric Cantona talking in French and coming up with really profound things. That would be good.'

Tamzin Outhwaite

The latest name rumoured for the jungle is none other than Eastenders legend Tamzin Outhwaite, with ITV apparently keen for her to take part. A source told The Sun, 'It's early days with Tamzin but she's someone producers have discussed going to Oz in the autumn — and she's told pals she is 100 per cent not taking part in Strictly.'

Ben Shephard

According to the Metro, Good Morning Britain favourite Ben Shephard is also a favourite with the bookies to face the jungle challenges. It follows Kate Garraway's appearance last year.

Christine Quinn

Selling Sunset's breakaway star is rumoured to be joining the show. The castle may be less luxurious than her usual mansions, but we're sure she could sell it in a heartbeat.
