Who could take part in I'm A Celebrity all stars? (ITV)

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! is finally launching an all-stars version after 21 series - meaning they'll be spoilt for choice with decades of contestants to pick from for the cast.

The new show is expected to air in 2023 and while the camp location will move to South Africa, the hosts will stay the same with Ant and Dec fronting the action.

But the lads won't be the only familiar faces for fans of the ITV challenge series as it will welcome back some of the most popular former campmates.

So far, no names have been confirmed - but here's who could be in the running to make up the all-stars camp.

Katie Price

She's the only campmate to have competed in two series already, so what's a third?

Pricey met her husband-to-be Peter Andre during her first stint in the jungle in 2004, but the romance had come to an end by the time she re-entered in 2009, where she ended up quitting after being voted into most trials.

But the bad memories of her last jungle stay may have faded after many years in between and now that the TV star is trying to clean up her act, could she triumph in the series?

It would be an amazing casting coup if I'm A Celeb bosses could manage to get both Andre and Price back into camp together, but we'll admit that seems unlikely.

However, even Andre alone makes for an amazing campmate with his upbeat nature and willingness to give any challenge a go.

Plus, who doesn't want to hear a follow-up to his jungle-inspired song Insania?

Natalie Appleton

One of the most terrified celebs ever to enter camp was former All Saints star Appleton in 2004, who very nearly managed to starve her co-stars by dropping out of so many of the huge number of trials the viewers voted her into.

Her list of fears was long and included heights, water, and pretty much any critter living in the jungle.

Could time have seen Appleton transform into a brave warrior? Or would her refusal to try tasks continue to frustrate campmates and entertain viewers?

Helen Flanagan

If anyone's going to give Appleton a run for her money as the least likely celeb to agree to put herself through the experience again, surely it's ex-Corrie star Flanagan.

The soap actor had Ant and Dec in hysterics every night with her shrieks over even the simplest of challenges, but not so much her hungry co-stars.

Come on Celeb bosses, give her a chance to redeem herself...

Jordan North

When the show was forced to decamp to Wales in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, it might have lost the sunshine but it certainly didn't lose any of the entertainment factor.

Radio 1 DJ Jordan North announced himself by vomiting off the side of a cliff ahead of an abseil into camp and kept fans laughing with his Burnley football fan mantra "happy place Turf Moor" during tricky trials.

Paul Burrell

He might have been a wild card going into the 2004 winter camp, but the former butler to Princess Di quickly established himself as an all-time classic contestant.

From his hilarious expressions during uncomfortable challenges to his "move over, darling" aimed at a rat, Burrell was a hit every time he appeared on screen.

Quite frankly, a series without Burrell just could not be described as "all-stars".

Harry Redknapp

Amazingly, football manager Redknapp had never seen an episode of I'm A Celebrity before entering the 2018 series.

However, his long stream of funny and bizarre anecdotes, his no-nonsense attitude and his touching love for wife Sandra made him the hugely popular series winner.

Ant was on his year off that series with Holly Willoughby filling in, so no doubt he'd be keen to see Redknapp in person.

But now that he knows what he's signing up to, would he be tempted back?

I'm A Celebrity will return to Australia this November on ITV.
