It's Not Delia Smith!

Delia Smith has said that rumours that she may be joining the next I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! are completely false.

Delia's agent, Debbie Owen said on her behalf, "I don't know who's running this story but it's so funny. She gets approached all the time to do things like Celebrity Big Brother. I cannot remember if they (the producers of I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!) approached her but it's just not her in anyway. It's not the sort of thing she would ever consider doing."

That's the thing about I'm A Celeb they stoke up the gossip and create a buzz but ITV won't actually release the name of the contestants until the day the programme goes out - November 12th. Until then we have to try and read between the lines.

Katie Hopkins Needs Some Jungle Work

Katie Hopkins celebrityOne of the named 'possibles' for the next I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, as we mentioned yesterday, is Katie Hopkins. Here's a little more info on her.

Katie is from Barnstaple in Devon, born May 31st 1976, and was a contestant on the reality show The Apprentice. Though one of the favourites to win the she famously left the show in week eleven before Sir Alan Sugar could say, "You're fired!"

Though she did well on Apprentice it became obvious that what she really hankered for was to be in the public eye. She's had her wish, in a way, and has made numerous media appearances. The jungle could give her the helping hand to take her fame to the next level.

She did manage a certain notoriety when she had a fling with a married man, Mark Cross, and photographs of her and her lover making love were splashed across the tabloids

Katie Hopkins is full of confidence and is in the style of Carol Thatcher in some ways. She's a tough cookie and knows what she wants. Katie also needs the work as she was fired by the Exeter Express and Echo earlier this month. Readers didn't want to read her column.

She studied Politics and Economics at Exeter University and has worked as a consultant for such organisations as, Guinness, Reuters, Thomas Financial and Barclays.

Who Is Going On I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here?

Gemma Atkinson jungle boundFollowing the rumours and secret reports who have we got so far that are tipped for the next I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!?

Okay, here's a list the names mentioned on the I'm A Celebrity grapevine. The names with links are celebs we have written about so far:

Gemma Atkinson, Katie Hopkins, Malcolm McLaren, Cerys Matthews, Koo Stark, Kelly Osbourne, Richard Fairbrass, Jimmy White, Claire Richards, Chantelle Houghton, Gene Simmons and Paris Hilton.

Of course the programme makers like to tease us with false names and red herrings while others jump on the publicity bandwagon. Eventually the 'real' truth will prevail.

Dennis Rodman tipped to shake up celebsToday the Daily Star Sunday reports that basketball and reality show star Dennis Rodman is on standby to 'cause a rumble in the jungle.' A show source is alleged to have said, "We plan to put him in later - but all of that could change. We like the idea of letting stars settle in camp and then sending in a few people to mix it up."

Presenters Ant and Dec have now jetted out to Australia to prepare for the show - what a tough life they lead!

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! starts on Monday, 12th of November.

Chantelle Houghton Signed Up For I'm A Celebrity

Chantelle Houghton bikini packed for jungleThe latest buzz on the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! grapevine is that Chantelle Houghton has been signed up for the next series, starting November 12th.

Chantelle Houghton is the so called Big Brother star who got hitched to fellow housemate Preston of the Ordinary Boys. They are now separated.

Now I don't know how long it takes to recover from a boob job but Chantelle is reported to have said that she wants one before she hits the jungle. She wants to go from a 32B to a 32D and then flash them about. She said, "I want to show Preston exactly what he's missing."

It's also said that she hopes to do a Myleene Klass and show herself off in a string of sexy bikinis.

Chantelle went on to say, "I'm looking for fun, but not a man yet. I'm just planning to flirt with as many guys as possible."

Of course, Chantelle is known as a Paris Hilton look-a-like so this must surely mean that the Jungle rumours about the real Paris either aren't true, or a deal wasn't made. The I'm A Celeb guys must have settled on a substitute!

Is Whirlwind Jimmy White Joining Gemma Atkinson In Australia?

Gemma Atkinson ready for the jungleWhirlwind Jimmy WhitePerhaps not quite as glamorous as Gemma Atkinson (okay nowhere near as glamorous!) but another kind of whirlwind is being talked about as a possible I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contestant. This time it's the man known as the People's Champion, Jimmy White - of snooker fame.

James (Jimmy) Warren White was born on May 2nd, 1962 and has had a professional snooker career spanning some 20+ years. He has five children with ex-wife Maureen White and was awarded an MBE in 1999.

Wonder what skills he could take to the jungle?

Buddhist Koo Stark Heading For Jungle?

Koo Stark the photographerAnother of the rumoured I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contestants is Koo Stark, but would she really do such a programme?

Koo was mainly famous for two things: being the lover of Prince Andrew in the early 80's and for her controversial part in the 1976 erotic film Emily. This includes an infamous shower scene of Koo with another woman.

Koo Stark in EmilyKoo Stark was born 26th of April, 1956 and was named as Kathleen Dee-Anne Norris. She is the daughter of American film producer Wilbur Stark and Kathi Norris. She has a daughter born in 1996, Tatiana, the father being Warren Walker, a millionaire banker.

Stark lives in London, with her daughter, and in 2002 was diagnosed with breast cancer which resulted in an emergency mastectomy. Her second breast had to be removed in 2003. Because of this she founded a cancer awareness agency Keep Abreast.

Koo Stark is a practicing Buddhist and is now a photographer.

A Buddhist in the jungle eating bugs and insects - unlikely!

Gemma Atkinson Has Packed Her Bikini For The Jungle

Gemma Atkinson to be on I'm A Celebrity?The buzz is that Gemma Atkinson will be joining the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! contestants in the jungle.

Gemma is the ex Hollyoaks actress, she played the part of Lisa Hunter. She is also the ex girlfriend of the Manchester United footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. According to Sexy Celebrities she ended the relationship when she discovered he was off out with hookers!

Gemma Atkinson said, "I did go out with Cristiano, but it all ended when he was caught with prostitutes. Neither did he dump me, nor did I dump him – it just sort of ended. Now I’m seeing someone else, who is semi-famous."

Gemma was born November 16th, 1984 in Bury, Greater Manchester. As well as Hollyoaks she also appeared in a spin-off series Hollyoaks: Let Lose. Gemma is now known mostly as a glamour model. In 2006 she underwent breast enlargement surgery to make her a 34F. No doubt she will look very pleasing under the jungle shower!

She has appeared in several men's magazines such as FHM, Zoo and Nuts and recently was seen promoting La Senza lingerie.

All in all, providing the rumours are true, Gemma should become a favourite with most of the male I'm A Celeb watchers.

Malcolm McLaren Is Getting Jungle Cold Feet

Malcolm McLaren Cold Celebrity FeetWe said that Malcolm McLaren had been rumoured to have signed up for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

It now appears this was the case but he has changed his mind - not that it will be any great loss! An I'm A Celeb person says, "We are doing all we can to keep him. It's touch and go as to whether he'll be in the final line up now."

They say Malcolm has had second thoughts about the Bushtucker Trials and isn't too keen about being stuck with a load of celebs. Wonder why he didn't think about that before saying he would take part?

Problems At The I'm A Celebrity Camp Site

Myleene Klass shower scene from 2006 showThere's a slight problem with the next UK I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! it's reported that the area where it is held has been poisoned!

The camp site, which is in Dungay Creek in the New South Wales rain forest, has been contaminated by some toxic substance, probably insecticide. Local residents have been told to avoid the area and to keep out of the water. Would this mean no Myleene Klass type moments in the shower?!

An ITV chappie said, "Dungay Creek runs through the land where I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! is filmed. Investigations are ongoing but the show will be going ahead as planned."

The likely cause of the problem is that nearby vegetation has been sprayed with insecticide and this has got into the water accidently.

There's one thing for sure, though, I'm A Celebrity will be on our screens from November 12th.

Cerys Matthews Says It's Not A Jungle Fact

Cerys Matthews - not heading for jungle?Cerys Matthews, or Cerys Elizabeth Philip Matthews to be precise, has denied tabloid reports that she will appear on the November I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!

The former Catatonia frontwoman, aged 38, has recently returned to Wales after divorcing her music producer husband.

Cerys said, "Well, I am now divorced. I've not done an interview about it. What am I meant to say? I was always going to come back. It's a long way from Pembrokeshire to Nashville. The pull for me was my children and the freedom they have here. In Nashville I was always an immigrant with two young children. I really did love it, I was at home there as an adult. I would have stayed, but I didn't feel ready for my children to not have the same background as me."

When asked about I'm A Celebrity Cerys Matthews answered, "Everyone asks me this. It's not a fact. I'm not on the blinking 'dancing with the stars' thing and they said I was going to be on there as well. I've only been in the country three days and they've got me on every single show."

So there you go, from the horses mouth so to speak. Cerys says she isn't heading for the jungle despite newspaper reports that she has been signed up and is ready to munch on those kangaroo 'thingies'.

Time will tell.

Celebrity Phone Votes Scandal Plus Myleene Klass Photos

Myleene Klass bikini photoThe I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! news today is really the fall out from the 2006 series. By this I mean the ITV scandal regarding phone votes.

In the November 2006 vote, when Myleene Klass was a contestant, SMS votes closed three-and-a-half minutes early. This meant that any votes cast during this period would have been charged for but not counted or included in the result.

Myleene Klass jungle shower
This was supposedly caused by a human error and affected about 7% of the votes made. We are told that this would not have made any difference to the final outcome of the show. It was simply a case of voters wasting their money - refunds will be made.

Let's hope all of this will have no bearing on the 2007 series starting next month.

What all of this does do, though, is to give a good excuse for including snatched photos of Myleene Klass having a shower in the 2006 I'm A Celebrity!

Malcolm McLaren Rumoured To Appear With Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton off to RwandaThe Daily Star, when writing about Paris Hilton today, says, 'Paris, who is being lined up for I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! is turning an upcoming trip to Rwanda into a reality show. She will be followed by a film crew on a five day mercy mission visiting schools and clinics in the war ravaged country.'

So perhaps her appearance in I'm a Celebrity is a real possibility.

Malcolm McLarenAlso rumoured to be appearing is Malcolm McLaren, aged 61. Guess he thinks if John Lydon can do it so can he. Malcolm is the ex Sex Pistols supremo. Not quite as glamorous as Paris though!

Is Paris Hilton Heading For The Jungle?

Paris Hilton nearly nakedCan it be true? Or just hype? The story going round is that Paris Hilton is negotiating to become a contestant in the next I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. It seems that the programme makers are willing to part with £500,000 for her to take part in the jungle action.

Paris is said to be on standby to fly out to Australia next month. I'm A Celebrity is due to start on November 12th.

Why would Paris Hilton want to do the show, especially as she's supposedly terrified of bugs and snakes? It seems she wants to turn her life round and show that she isn't just a party animal - yea right!

Could be interesting if she does join Celebrity.
