Chelcee Grimes has responded to rumours she has signed up to star on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

The 29 year was tipped to appear on last year's series of the hit ITV show, rumoured to have been on standby if one of the campmates withdrew due to coronavirus testing.

Due to this, footballer and songwriter Chelcee has been placed on many line-up rumours for this year's series, which is again based in Wales' Grwych Castle.

But she has now denied the rumours, admitting she wouldn't be able to put herself through isolation again after 18 months of lockdown.

When asked by Daily Star if she was keen on starring on a reality show, Chelcee admitted: "Right now not so much, no.

"I know last year there were a few stories about me on I'm A Celeb.

"I think at the minute, I've been isolating for that long so I don't think I'd be able to go and isolate somewhere else. Especially in a jungle and eating bugs."


Discussing the possibility of starring on Strictly Come Dancing, she added: "Dancing is not really my thing, maybe in a few years if I did a bit of practice but I think right now, I've got enough on my plate.

"Especially with the football, the TV and the podcast, so I'm quite happy watching it from home."

One name expected to be headed to the castle is former EastEnders star Jake Wood, who was set to be in "advanced talks" in July.

Speaking about his theatre show 2:22 – A Ghost Story on Good Morning Britain, Ben Shephard asked: "Just quickly though, will you be finished in time to go to the jungle if the call comes in?"

Jake then revealed: "Yes, I finish in mid-October. I've made no secret about the fact I would love to do the jungle.

"We were talking about it in the break," he said while gesturing to GMB host Kate, who took part in the series in 2019. Jake added: "And you were recommending."

Kate then insisted to Jake: "I say go!" Ben added: "We'd love to see you out there, whether it's Wales or Australia?"

Jake revealed he is keen to take part in the show wherever it's set this year.

It has since been confirmed that I'm A Celebrity will be taking place in Wales.
