Paul Burrell has been tipped to join a new all star series of 'I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

ITV bosses are said to be planning to bring back former stars of the show to compete in a new version which will be filmed in South Africa.

Princess Diana's former butler previously competed in 'I’m A Celebrity' back in 2004, and now The Sun reports he could be heading back to the jungle for a second turn.

A source told the publication: "His bizarre facial expressions during the Bushtucker Challenge have gone down in the jungle’s history books.

“Only Dean Gaffney could compete with those kinds of hysterics — and that really is saying something.

“So if ITV does strike a deal with Paul then he’s almost guaranteed to be doing the challenge again. Unless, of course, he bans it by inserting a unique clause in his contract."

Paul came second in the 2004 series after being pipped to the title of King of the Jungle by comedian Joe Pasquale.

Other stars said to be returning for the all star series include former 'Coronation Street' actress Helen Flanagan and Gillian McKeith, who famously fainted on camera when faced with the show's grizly challenges.

Others tipped for a jungle return include Gino D’Acampo, Shaun Ryder and Vicky Pattison.

The main show is returning to Australia later this year after spending two years being filmed in Wales due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The spin-off is believed to be slated to air in early 2023 while another edition of the main show will follow later that year.
