Strictly's Zara McDermott on I'm A Celeb rumoursBBC

Zara McDermott has addressed the rumours saying she's set to appear on the upcoming season of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! following her Strictly stint.

The reality TV star hasn't shut down speculation of a possible jungle appearance after her boyfriend, Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson, won the last season.

"Who knows, you never know what's going to happen," Zara said speaking to Gaby Roslin on BBC Radio 2, admitting Sam would be tough to follow.

"I don't know if I could follow his crowning. How could I ever follow that?"

She also touched upon the backlash she received after she didn't fly to Australia to greet Sam at the end of I'm a Celeb as it overlapped with Strictly.

"The end of Strictly and the jungle overlapped so I couldn't go but his best friend Pete went out there. It was lovely for them to have that moment," she said.

The couple are going strong, with Sam revealing marriage is definitely on the horizon for them.

"Zara just really wanted to get away so it wasn't like one of those really special on-one-knee places," he told OK! magazine after the pair went on holiday to Dubai last month.

"I probably wouldn't do it in Dubai anyway to be fair. But it was an amazing trip," he added.

"I don't know if Zara can say the same as I got insomnia for the first three nights and Zara got really annoyed at me. One day I shall be getting down on one knee to propose. Marriage is on the cards at some point, yes."

I'm a Celebrity… airs on ITV1 and ITVX.
