Coronation Street star Jack P Shepherd has opened up about the controversial reason why he would never take part in I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!. Chatting to Daily Star about why he would avoid appearing on the show at all costs, he explained: "I'd lose my job if I did I’m a Celeb. I'd say something un-PC or upset someone and come out and have no job. I don’t think work would let me."

Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Waring also said she'd like to head to Australia for the show, telling the Manchester Evening News: "I've always wanted to do the jungle. I'm scared of everything but I'd like to be in Australia. There are no pressures from the outside world, no TVs and no phones and I think it's a real test of inner strength which has always appealed to me." The show's executive, Micky Van Praagh, previously revealed that they had already started casting for the show. Chatting at a BAFTA Masterclass, she said: "It’s very early days, but we’ve already started casting. I think we know what works. I think of our show as a comedy and so I’m looking for people who are funny and high energy as we know those types of things always work… But otherwise you want to do something completely different every year."
