While it’s been announced that Ant McPartlin, 42, won’t be presenting this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! alongside Declan Donnelly, 42, the line-up rumour mill is in full swing.
The latest celeb tipped to head down to the Australian outback is none other than Good Morning Britain hostess Kate Garraway, 51.
It’s been reported that if Kate signs up to the ITV reality show she could be pocketing a pay pack of around £150,000.
A TV insider teased: “Kate has been approached by show producers because they know she would be TV gold.
“Kate has always been relatable and game for a challenge but since entering her fifties she’s embracing all aspects of life and sees the Aussie jungle as the ultimate life test.”
The source continued to The Sun: “She’s in great shape at the minute too so wouldn’t have any qualm about stripping off in a bikini and would be flying the flag for the more mature lady.”
Kate took to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom in 2007 and landed 7th place with partner Anton Du Beke, so could a jungle stint be on the horizon?
The telly babe did announce on Good Morning Britain earlier in the week that she wouldn’t be up for heading Down Under.

She told co-host Jeremy Kyle: “I’d be useless.”
But was she just pulling viewers’ legs?
Newsreader Charlotte Hawkins also agreed, and said: “I don’t like heights, I don’t like the dark, I don’t like bugs.”
Meanwhile Former UKIP politician Nigel Farage teased an appearance while being interviewed on GMB.
He said: “Once we’re a free, independent country, charting our own course, and I’m completely out of the grubby world of politics, who knows what I might do.”
Dec will be presenting I’m A Celeb with a new co-host this year.
This comes after Ant pulled out of his TV commitments earlier this year after being charged with drink-driving following a car crash in Richmond, London.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns later this year.
