I’M A CELEB bosses have sealed up soap favourite JAMIE LOMAS for the jungle.
I can exhibit show chiefs are now anticipating Jamie — who was formerly married to Coronation Street’s KYM MARSH — will strike up a intrigue with one of his campmates.
They embody THE SATURDAYS’ VANESSA WHITE who recently separate from her long-term boyfriend, and Made in Chelsea’s GEORGIA TOFFOLO.
An insider said: “Jamie is a attractive singular man so they are anticipating sparks will fly with one of the singular girls in the camp.
“There will be copiousness of beautiful girls in there he could finish up attack it off with.
“And the bosses know viewers adore a jungle romance. Jamie is a really down-to-earth, humorous bloke but also doesn’t humour fools. So they consider he’s a good signing.”
The father of two shot to celebrity as bad child Warren Fox in Hollyoaks and went on to star in EastEnders before returning to the Cheshire-based soap in 2016.
But he is quitting for a second time and his thespian exit will be shown on the Channel 4 soap next week.
Explaining his departure, Jamie said: “Just to try other things really. we like to go in and have a little time in Hollyoaks and then try something else.”
He joked: “Maybe I’ll go back in time.”
A source close to Jamie combined last night: “This is a really sparkling time for him. He can’t wait to get into the camp, meet his campmates and get stuck into the challenges.
“He isn’t daunted by any of the trials at the moment, but let’s see what happens when he gets out there.”
A orator for I’m A Celeb said: “We don’t criticism on speculation.”
Ant looks the part
ANT McPARTLIN is still to get the doctors’ all-clear but has given the clearest sign nonetheless he’s on his way to liberation – and Down Under.
He visited his favourite coiffeur – Jo Blu in Chiswick, West London – last weekend to get his barnet embellished in time for the show.
And a source told me: “It’s approaching Ant will be given the immature light by medics imminently to join DECLAN DONNELLY in Australia, so he got his favourite pre-I’m A Celeb haircut.
“He was very upbeat and bubbly and smiled lots.
“He was really looking like his old self and pronounced he was really looking brazen to the show.”
Earlier this year The Sun on Sunday suggested how Ant’s two-year obsession to clever painkillers almost killed him, following a botched knee operation.
Having emerged from a two-month army in rehab, the star after praised the shining NHS alloy who saved him.
I’m looking brazen to seeing a healthy and happy Ant make a jubilant return to the show alongside his companion Dec.
Meanwhile, Extra Camp horde SCARLETT MOFFATT could go off-script after being urged by ANT DEC to be herself.
Last year’s Queen of the Jungle said: “When we do Saturday Night Takeaway they contend ‘Be you’, so we ad-lib. I’m starting to feel some-more confident.” About time too.
ANT DEC have teased they know I’m A Celeb’s full line-up.
The rapper PRINCESS VITARAH posted a selfie on Twitter and asked: “Tell me something we don’t know.”
The span cheekily replied: “I’ve got the choice for this year’s @ImA Celebrity if you’re meddlesome . . . ”
Sheridan: we lost it a bit
SHERIDAN SMITH has non-stop up about last year’s relapse after her beloved father Colin died of cancer.
She quit West End show Funny Girl after allegedly being dipsomaniac on stage, then went to a shelter with basin and anxiety.
In an ITV special tonight, she sings Crazy by GNARLS BARKLEY and says: “I wanted it to be a impertinent blink to my meltdown. You come out the other side stronger. we lost my mind a bit.”
Sheridan who is dating beautician Graham Nation, also spoke of her unsuccessful flings with JORDAN RING of Love Island and actor GREG WOOD, adding: “I need someone who creates me laugh. My father set the bar high.”
Here’s anticipating Sheridan’s lover is good with the one-liners.
Bey loves Lil’ bit of dress up
MOST people onslaught to cobble together one decent Halloween dress-up outfit – but not BEYONCE.
In a loyalty to LIL’ KIM, Queen Bey changed into FIVE of the rapper’s many famous looks, including a fluorescent yellow bikini from Kim’s 1997 No Way Out tour.
Naturally, the thespian posted veteran pictures of all the looks, which also enclosed a flesh-coloured, fur-trimmed physique suit.
Makes ALAN CARR’s GEMMA COLLINS outfit demeanour tame.
JUST weeks after ANGELINA JOLIE accused ashamed HARVEY WEINSTEIN of sexually badgering her, it has emerged she has pumped £1million into a gift set up to forestall assault to women.
The Hollywood thespian launched the Jolie Pitt Dalton Helic Foundation in May 2015, and primarily loaned the gift £368,686 to get it off the ground.
The latest accounts accessible show she put in a serve £621,893 by Dec last year, holding her sum grant to £990,037. Good on Angelina.
Daisy cheeks in for the weekend
THIS time last year, DAISY LOWE was sweating it out on Strictly.
Now the indication is relaxing in posh hotel saunas instead.
On Friday she put her best, ahem, impertinence brazen to poise in a swimsuit and posted this on her Instagram, which she captioned: “#TFIFRIDAY happy weekend everyone.”
Not sceptical at all, honest.
Harry’s X Factor return silences argument rumours
X FACTOR bosses are on a hurl when it comes to signing top acts for guest slots – and that run will continue next week when HARRY STYLES takes to the stage.
I suggested back in Aug chiefs had set their sights resolutely on the ONE DIRECTION star.
And they reliable last night Harry is on house for next Saturday’s show.
PALOMA FAITH, meanwhile, will perform on the Sunday night.
As good as giving the series’ ratings a boost, Harry’s coming will lay to rest slow rumours of rancour between him and former boss SIMON COWELL.
Despite Harry’s decision to pierce divided from Simon’s Syco tag to sign a megabucks understanding with Columbia Records, the tag boss has always insisted there is no bad blood between them.
And Harry has been equally discerning to regard the music mogul, purgation that he is “wonderful”.
That means fans can design a correct love-in between the span next Saturday night.
A source told me: “The bosses were unfortunate to get Harry on house this year and they are gay he has managed to find the time to perform.
“He is partial of The X Factor’s biggest success story, so asking him was a no-brainer.
“The bosses are certain he will be a major ratings boost for the show, as good as giving Simon the possibility to publicly show his support for him as a solo artist. This is a genuine manoeuvre for them.”
After last week’s occurrence on theatre at his gig in London, let’s wish there aren’t any kiwi fruit in the audience.
SINCE he can’t play the guitar for a while after breaking his arms, ED SHEERAN needs a new business distraction.
It could engage opening a chronicle of US fast-food sequence Hooters – some-more famous for its shapely waitresses in brief shorts than its duck wings – with his companion JAMES BLUNT.
James, who toured America with Ed progressing this year, said: “All we can contend is that many nights we finished up in Hooters.
“We are meditative about opening up a Hooters over on this side of the water.”
I wish the venture doesn’t go t*ts up.
Lottie’s Gleam of the Crop
ONLY one of the MOSS house could make this tinsel-trimmed dress demeanour edgy.
KATE’s little sis LOTTIE callous up the demeanour with a leather coupler at a Dolce Gabbana eventuality in Harrods on Friday.
Meanwhile, thespian PIXIE LOTT went for a “Bridget Jones meets Pat Butcher” demeanour by teaming her bare granny-pants with a horde of sparkly jewels.
How very festive. All that was blank was a potion of mulled booze and a chubby, bearded man in a red suit.
TOPPING the charts and selling out universe tours aren’t adequate for LADY GAGA.
She wants to bag an Oscar after essay the music for her new film A Star Is Born.
I can exhibit the thespian is aiming for a double at the awards – for songwriting and as an actress.
