I’m A Celebrity 2020 line-up: Rumoured cast and confirmed contestants including Beverley Callard

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! is the biggest show of the year, with dozens of celebs fighting to take part.

And despite the ITV series being months away, there are already several big names rumoured to be taking part and hoping to succeed Jacqueline Jossa as king or queen of the jungle.

Coronation Street legend Beverley Callard is the first to sign up to the 2020 series, with other stars including Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard and Manchester United superstar Eric Cantona among the early rumours.

Here we take a look at all the I’m A Celebrity 2020 line-up rumours so far…

Beverley Callard

Beverley is the first star to officially be signed up for the 2020 series.

The soap starlet, who plays Liz McDonald, has signed up after leaving Corrie, the Mirror exclusively revealed.

She will shoot her final scenes in July if the coronavirus lockdown has ended by then, and after that she will be free for new projects.

One insider revealed: “Everyone was thrilled when Bev said yes, she is such a well-loved ITV face.”

AJ Pritchard

Aj is in talks to join the line-up after quitting Strictly Come Dancing.

He is reportedly keen to prove himself as a brave and ‘hard man’ after four years of donning sparkly outfits on the dancing show.

A source told The Sun : “AJ has a huge fanbase from Strictly, and he’s really grateful for the opportunity it afforded him but he is keen to show people that there is a lot more to him.”

Producers hope that AJ will be the eye candy of the next series, it’s claimed.

The insider added: “Bosses think he would be a great addition to the cast and it always helps to secure a heartthrob as it draws in much-needed younger viewers.”

Eric Cantona

I’m A Celebrity bosses are reportedly desperate to sign Cantona this year.

The Manchester United legend’s quirky personality would make him a dream sign-up.

Show producer Richard Cowles said: “I just like the idea of Eric Cantona talking in French and coming up with really profound things.”

Lucy Fallon

Lucy has quit her role as Bethany Platt on Corrie and TV bosses are desperate to sign her up to a reality TV show.

But I’m A Celeb has reportedly beaten Strictly and got her to agree to the upcoming series.

A source told The Sun : “Lucy is bubbly, funny, down-to-earth and game for a challenge, so she is a great fit for I’m A Celebrity.

“She had conversations last year about taking part but said, ‘Thanks, but no thanks.’

“This year, she told them she feels the timing is right.”

Richard Madeley

Richard has said that he’d always turned down the chance to take part in I’m A Celeb, but is now considering it.

He told the Radio Times that it wasn’t the thought of eating bugs that put him off, it was being away from home for so long.

The TV host said: “It’s just it’s a month – it’s a good month out of your life.

“When I did The Circle I was only out of circulation for a total of 7 or 8 days. Like most people, I’m quite busy and I’ve got a lot going on.

“So if they ask me next year, I will think about it seriously, but I’d really have to have a look at my diary really and see how it would impact work. I would think carefully about it and if I could make room for it.”

Charles Ingram

The so-called Coughing Major Ingram has been thrust back into the spotlight since the story of the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? cheating scandal was retold in ITV drama Quiz.

Ingram is now tipped by bookies to be cast in the jungle reality series later this year.

He is now at odds of 3/1, according to leading bookmaker Ladbrokes.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Major Ingram would be an A1 choice for the next series of I’m A Celeb and the odds suggest he could well be heading Down Under.”

Matt Baker

Matt has been one of the top names rumoured after he stepped down as the host of The One Show.

And he recently added fuel to the rumours as he said he wouldn’t be quick to turn bosses down.

He told Hello! magazine: “I haven’t had any conversations yet.”

But he added: “I am reluctant to say no to anything without having a good think about it.”

John was one of the names rumoured for I’m A Celeb 2019 but he never made it to the jungle.

Now the former footballer says he would like to take part.

He’s already done a string of reality TV shows and I’m A Celeb is next on his list.

John told : “I’ve done a few shows – I’ve been on Family Fortunes and The Brightest Family.

“I did Strictly Come Dancing 10 years ago, but Dancing on Ice with my age and the injuries I’ve had, I don’t think so.

“The Jungle would be good!”
