Kate Garraway has decided the timing isnt right for her to take part in Im A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!
The Good Morning Britain presenter was rumoured to be going into the jungle next week, but it has now been claimed that shes dropped out.
Kate apparently doesnt fancy being away from the UK for so long – although if it was the idea of eating kangaroo testicles that put her off, we totally get that.
Bosses originally wanted to get Kate in the jungle because shes relatable about sees the Aussie jungle as the ultimate life test.
Kate is no longer taking part – she didnt want to be out of the UK for a long time and its just not the right time for her to take part, a source told The Sun.
Shes a big fan of the show so shes not ruling it out forever – just this year!
Hopefully Kate will change her mind and get on board in 2019!
According to reports in The Sun, Rita is keen to try out reality television, and would be following in the footsteps of former co-star Laila Morse into the jungle.
They say the 41-year-old actress is hoping time in the jungle will help her with a series of health struggles including ADHD, OCD, anxiety and insomnia.
Meanwhile James could be about to bring some music into the camp, which is feared could face mega storms next week.
The 24-year-old is hoping to raise the temperatures too by getting his kit off in the showers, with an insider saying: James is certain to cause excitement with his topless shower scenes and even though he has a girlfriend, producers are still hoping for a jungle romance.
Gogglebox star Sandra Martin disappointed her fans by confirming she wont be making an appearance this year – after teasing them that she would.
