But while Klass is said to be signed up for the show, she may not be jumping back into the shower again.

“It feels like a lifetime ago, and only yesterday. It’s the weird dichotomy. It was a very good time in my life.”

Now Whyment, who was beaten in his first jungle stop by Jacqueline Jossa, is rumored to be heading to South Africa for another battle against insects.
Viewers know him as the long-running cobblestone character Kirk, but fans of I’m a celebrity loved finding out more about Whyment outside of his soap alter ego, and the show’s bosses are said to be keen to bring him back again to keep the camp’s sense of fun.
The former Countdown The star is rumored to be repeating her stay at the camp after she first appeared in 2016.
