‘Sign up Team GB gold medallist Matty Lee for the 2021 season,’ according to the I’m A Celebrity producers.
Tom Daley’s gold medal-winning diving partner is expected to go to Gwrych Castle in Wales next month to join his fellow campmates for the next season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
Matty Lee, Tom Daley’s Olympic diving partner, is expected to appear on this year’s I’m a Celebrity… I’m trying to get out of here.
ITV is believed to have signed the hunky athlete, who rose to popularity after winning gold alongside Tom at this year’s Olympic games in Tokyo, to star in the programme.
“Matty became one of the most talked about names in the Olympics Games this summer,” a source told The Sun.
“There had been some discussion about bringing Tom on board before, but after his performance in the Olympics, Matty became a hot favorite, and his journal became available. The timing was impeccable.
“Matty is youthful, strong, and will thrive in the face of adversity.” He’s really looking forward to getting on board and getting involved in the action.” Adam Woodyatt, who portrays Ian Beale on EastEnders, and Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald on Coronation Street, will apparently appear on the grueling ITV show later this year.
Richard Madeley, the 65-year-old former host of This Morning, is also expected to visit the Welsh castle.
Also, if ex-Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips, 78, enters camp when the show resumes, she will become the show’s oldest ever contestant, dethroning prime minister Boris Johnson’s father Stanley.
“We do not comment on speculation,” an I’m A Celebrity spokesman remarked in reaction to the lineup rumors.
Due to travel constraints, the hit endurance reality show Covid-19 has returned to Wales for the second year in a row.
The set is now being constructed, and the show is expected to premiere soon.
Ant McPartlin, 45, and Declan Donnelly, 46, have been posting behind-the-scenes photos as they prepare for the new season.
At order to prevent any outbreaks of covid-19 in the camp or on set, this year’s batch of campmates will be quarantined two weeks prior to the commencement of the season.
Later this year, ITV’s I’m A Celebrity will return.
