Louis Smith has hinted that he could be heading into the jungle for this year’s series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
The Olympic gymnast – who scooped two silvers and a bronze this weekend – might be swapping out the Rio rainforests for the Australian outback as it’s been speculated that he’s joining the all-star campmate cast line-up.

“There’s something in the pipeline,” Louis, 27, teased. “I have got a meeting when I get back about a potential show.
“You guys will probably have a field day with it. But I am looking forward to it, it’s something I have wanted to do for a long time.”
Quizzed by The Sun about the I’m A Celeb rumours, he allegedly grinned and commented: “I can neither confirm or deny anything you say. Like I say, wait and see.
“When I get back I am dancing for seven weeks, on tour with a West End show called Keep Dancing, so I am looking forward to a break from gym.”

Meanwhile a spokesperson poured cold water over the claims, telling the tabloid: “Anyone suggested for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! at this early stage is just pure speculation.”
Though it wouldn’t be the first time that the Team GB star has turned his hand from Olympic sports to reality TV, as he previously took part in the 2012 series of Strictly Come Dancing, with professional partner Flavia Cacace.
The dancing duo scored a perfect 40 in the grand finale of the award-winning BBC show, which resulted in another triumph, as Louis and Cacace were announced as the winners of the series.

Will Louis Smith be adding the ‘King of the Jungle’ winning title to his long list of achievements and accolades?
Well, he might face some competition as 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, Absolutely Fabulous star Helen Lederer, as well as soap star stunners Fiona Wade and Olympia Valance.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will return to ITV in November.
