Could these surprise celebrities be joining Im a Celeb?

The jungle every year is full of surprises and now that the official line-up has been released, are we in for some extra twists?

Among the confirmed camp members are Inbetweeners actress Emily Attack and Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer. 

Along with the Chase’s Anne Hegarty, Nick Knowles, Fleur East and EastEnders alum, Rita Simons - to name a few.

But is one of the celebs being kept a secret?

According to The Sun, there is a mystery camp mate yet to be announced and whispers indicate that it could be an American.

US publications have been hinting at the possibility of R&B singer Ray J, heading to the jungle.

Ray J mightn't be someone you're familiar with, but Kim Kardashian certainly is.

The singer dated Kim in the early 2000s, but is known mostly for his involvement in Kim's sex tape.

Anyone who is a Celebrity Big Brother fan would have seen the 37-year-old in the 2017 show.

Ray J left the programme unexpectedly and has hinted at his return to UK telly with I'm a Celebrity.

"We gotta talk about that one, I’ve seen a bit of that and it looks a little scary. If I have to, I will. If the teams says to go, I’ll go and represent the team," he told the Metro when asked about the possibility of featuring in the ITV show.

However, Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing has also been tipped for the spot as reports said he was in talks with bosses since August.

Jamie could very well follow in the footsteps of his cast member, Georgia Toffolo, who won the hearts of the nation last year and was crowned queen of the jungle.

But the reality star could have competition for the place, as rumours have been circulating around The Only Way Is Essex star, Megan McKenna.

The Daily Star Sunday alleged that the 26-year-old is a hot favourite with producers and they are "keen to get Megan on board." 

Another member from The Only Way Is Essex has also hinted at heading for the jungle.

Fans of Lauren Goodger are certain that she will appear in the show.

The TV personality sent rumours flying when she posted a cryptic message on social media.

“Having a lovely meal before I have a flight to catch tomorrow for my mind body and soul cleanse holiday," she wrote.

“You know I love my training and my sunshine and thank you @thenailbar_walthamabbey for sorting my little toes and feet’s #imaceleb #getme #outtahere,” she added.

Either way, we can't wait to see who the surprise celebrity is and we are looking forward to some of the best winter entertainment.
