Westlife’s Kian Egan to join ‘Celebrity’ jungle

Westlife’s Kian Egan is the latest star to be tipped for a spot on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

According to The Sun the Irish singer has inked a deal worth £100,000 to join the jungle line-up when the series returns later this month.

“Kian’s a game lad and is well up for the jungle madness,” a source told the paper.

He knows it won’t be easy, but he’s often said he would love a go at those Bushtucker Trials.”

If Kian does take part he will be following in the footsteps of other pop stars who have tried their luck in the jungle in the past.

The more successful have included McFly’s Dougie Poynter, who won the series in 2011, and 2012’s runner-up, Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts.

A whole host of names have already been rumoured to be taking part in the latest I’m A Celebrity, among them footballer Paul Gascoigne, TOWIE’s Joey Essex, former Strictly pro Vincent Simone, snooker ace Steve Davis and Emmerdale’s Lucy Pargeter.

Model Amy Willerton is also among the newer candidates for the series, whose start date has yet to be confirmed.
