ITV producers have reportedly signed up two soap stars for the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Emmerdale’s Fiona Wade, 37, and Neighbours star Olympia Valance, 23, are set to join the jungle this autumn, according to the Sunday People.

“I’m A Celeb has a rich history of picking beautiful ladies and this year it is no different with Fiona and Olympia,” a source told the tabloid. “Both are feisty women and should give the men a run for their money.”
They added: “Expect some steamy shower scenes!” circa 2006 – Myleene Klass and her infamous white bikini.
Fiona, who is best known as her on-screen alter-ego Priya Sharma, might not be the only cast member of the ITV soap to take a trip down under this year as her hunky co-star Adam Thomas has also been tipped to enter camp.
Meanwhile Holly Valance’s younger sister, Olympia, who plays fiery Paige Smith in Aussie soap Neighbours, recently shot a campaign for lingerie brand Gossard.
She said of the experience: “It has been quite a liberating thing to do, taking off your gear and wearing sexy undies. I’ve loved it. I didn’t think that I’d do anything like that but it has made me love my body in a way I never used to.”
However, both ladies have boyfriends – so don’t expect any Peter Andre/Katie Price-style romances in the camp.
Other rumoured names for I’m A Celeb 2016 include Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and Lauren Hutton, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, Cheryl’s ex Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, Michael Jackson’s former doctor Conrad Murray and Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here returns to ITV later this year.
