Only recently, Emily Atack, who is reportedly one of the confirmed stars for the line-up, was dragged into the scandalous Seann Walsh headlines when historic pictures of her and the funnyman emerged amid claims they had a secret fling years ago.

The actress, 28, rose to fame on The Inbetweeners as Charlotte Hinchcliffe, with a source telling The Sun that she’s ‘fed up of doing indie movies’ and wants a ‘big telly gig with lots of coverage’.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp, 70, whose son is Jamie Redknapp, who recently went through a high-profile divorce from wife Louise Redknapp, has a free schedule after he was sacked as managed of Birmingham City Football Club in 2017.

Star-studded: It has also been reported by The Sun that Rita Simons, Fleur East, Nick Knowles, James McVey, Anne Hegerty, Sair Khan and Malique Thompson-Dwyer (Harry Redknapp pictured earlier this month)

The Sun has claimed that the mystery star, who will complete the ten celebrity line-up, will enter the jungle on launch night.

While the publication has also reported that two surprise late arrivals will join the campmates during the show.

It has also been claimed that DIY SOS star Nick Knowles, 56, has been offered a ‘six-figure fee’ for his debut on the show, with a source telling The Sun: ‘They know Nick is incredibly popular, and they think he’d be great TV.’

Fleur, 31, rose to fame on the 2014 series of The X Factor, with a source telling the publication: ‘The relationship is already there and they are just negotiating a deal at the moment.’ 

If the reports are true, Sair Khan, who plays Alya Nazir on Coronation Street, will be following in her co-star Jennie McAlpine’s footsteps who appeared on the 2017 series.

While Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer, 20, who plays Prince McQueen, will be taking over Jamie Lomas’ position in the jungle after he also appeared on the 2017 show. 

And the two won’t be the only reported soap stars entering the famous camp as it has been claimed that EastEnders’ Rita Simons, 41, who was tragically killed off as her character Roxy Mitchell almost two years ago, is heading for the Australian jungle.
