It’s that time of year, folks! The rumour mill’s a’churning with suspicions on which Aussie celebs have been cast in the next season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and while we can’t always trust the ~rumours~, it sure is fun to theorise, isn’t it?
According to a report published by The Daily Telegraph, Georgia Love could be among the stars sent to the jungle for the upcoming season of the Channel 10 series.
Joining the former Bachelorette is the outspoken star of the Real Housewives Of Melbourne, Janet Roach, apparently.
However doubt has been cast on Love’s casting in the series as earlier this month she was rushed to hospital for an emergency throat surgery and I’m no medic but I’m thinking a not-so glam trip to the South African jungle will be against doctor’s orders.

Not exactly where I hoped to be two weeks before Christmas ☹️ I’ve been losing my voice a lot recently, haven’t been able to sing for almost a year and have found my voice gets sore and husky really easily. But I ignored it thinking she’ll be right! Well it turns out I had developed some quite serious issues with my vocal cords and have caused pretty nasty damage by pushing through, resulting in the need for surgery with a long and arduous recovery (including no talking at all for FOUR DAYS ???? Lee thinks Christmas has come early!) Fear not, I’ll be back to my normal chatty self in a few weeks! But this is my public service announcement not to ignore anything you think may be wrong. You know your body and if something doesn’t feel right. Your health should always be paramount, no matter what. Now to eat copious amounts of ice cream, jelly and soup and get my voice back! #nextstopbroadway ????????
The official I’m A Celeb Insta recently dropped a bunch of teasers, one of them revealing that a male “TV presenter”, “actor” and “reality winner” has signed on.
The post sparked a bunch of rumours as to who it might be with Grant Denyer, Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins and Luke Jacobz leading the suspect list.
An insider spilled the Honey Badger beans to New Idea, claiming that he was an early fave for the show.
Nick is still under contract with the network and is keen to win back the public’s approval so it’s the perfect opportunity.
The network bosses see him as a Shane Warne-style character who will – hopefully – redeem himself in the public eye during his time [on the show].
But that’s not all folks! There’s also rumblings from the tabloid that he’ll be joined by two “jungle intruders“: the two women he wooed and then controversially dumped on national television, Brittany Hockley and Sophie Tieman.
Soz to poo-poo the theorists but Denyer’s unlikely as he has no acting chops, neither does Honey Badger for that matter and I kinda doubt that he’d put himself through the stress of another reality series so soon after the shitshow that was The Bachelor.
Jacobz certianly fits the bill, however, having won Dancing with the Stars, acted in Home & Away, Mcleod’s Daughters and Heartbreak High and having hosted various shows, including the X Factor and Popstars Live.
Here’s some more food for thought via the other clue cards that have been unveiled on the show’s Insta:
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns to Channel 10 on January 13, 2019.
