Jordan Banjo has signed up for 'I'm a Celebrity All Stars.'

The 29-year-old star - who shot to fame when he and his dance troupe Diversity beat Susan Boyle to the title of 'Britain's Got Talent' champions back in 2009 - finished in 9th place on the regular version of the jungle-based survival show in Australia back in 2016 and will reportedly appear in the upcoming 'All-Stars' spin off, which will see a host of former campmates reunite in South Africa next year.

A source said: "ITV hope that Jordan will bring plenty of banter to their highly anticipated first 'All Stars' series. He’s always up for a laugh and should have no problem keeping morale high in the camp."

'The Greatest Dancer' presenter will join the likes of former 'Made In Chelsea' star Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo - who was crowned Queen of the Jungle back in 2017 - as well as ex-royal butler Paul Burrell, who was runner up on the series eventually won by comedian Joe Pasquale back in 2004.

The insider went on to explain that Jordan - who has been married to Naomi Courts since 2022 and has son Cassius, six, as well as three-year-old daughter Mayowa with her - will create "high energy moments" in the camp after "concern" that there would be a lack of drama on the upcoming series.

The insider told The Sun newspaper's TVBizcolumn: "There was some concern that there wouldn’t be as much drama on an All Stars season, given that all the celebs have already been on the show and know what to expect. Jordan will help create those high-energy moments."

Meanwhile, former 'Gogglebox' star Scarlett Moffatt was crowned Queen of the Jungle in the year that Jordan competed, but recently explained why she is not interested in taking part in the 'All Stars' version.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I was thinking about this because it has come to my attention. People have been talking about it but I just

feel like my experience was so good in there and the people I was with, we’re still friends. Even though it was like six years ago, we’re still all active on the WhatsApp group chat and I just think I wouldn’t want to then tarnish that experience by going in again and maybe it not living up to expectations."

'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here: All Stars' is set to air in 2023.
