Is former Strictly pro Ola Jordan heading into I'm A Celebrity jungle?

Updated: 

Rumours continue to fly around ahead of the forthcoming series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The latest to be added to the pretty long list of reported star names heading into the jungle this year is former Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan.

The blonde bombshell, who was on BBC's landmark dancing programme for 10 years until 2015, is believed to have been signed up by ITV bosses, but there will be no official confirmation of her taking part until the full line-up is revealed closer to the show's launch.

According to The Sun, a source has said that signing Ola is a "no brainer".

They added: "She's well-known, gorgeous and has strong opinions.

"Add difficult challenges and starvation to those qualities and she's sure to make great telly."

They also suggested that Ola's being in the jungle will bring out the best in her husband James Jordan - another former Strictly pro - as he is known for never shying away from saying what he wants.

"Having a very vocal husband is an added bonus in the deal. James is not afraid to air his opinions and will make a great guest on the spin-off show while Ola is in camp," the source said.

Before 34-year-old Ola's exit from Strictly in 2015, she also took part in Channel 4 reality show The Jump, but she was left with an injury to her leg and was forced to undergo surgery.

Other names suggested for this year's I'm A Celebrity - which starts next Sunday night - include Danny Baker, Carol Vorderman, Wayne Bridge, Scarlett Moffatt, Larry Lamb and Adam Thomas.

Nigel Farage had also been linked to the show, but recently insisted he is not about to appear in the next series.
