The line-up is yet to be officially confirmed. However, a number of slip-ups have suggested some beloved UK faces are sure to be joining them.

The cast will be placed in quarantine for two weeks before entering the show in order to assure the camp is Covid safe.

I'm A Celebrity 2021: Line-Up Rumours 

Richard Madeley (Chances: High)

Richard Madeley has reportedly signed up to the show in a staggering £200,000 deal, according to The Sun. 

The Good Morning Britain guest host has made several slips on the show suggesting he's entering the castle, including a declaration that he's learning Welsh. 

He also confirmed he had been gagged from talking about it by ITV. 

"They said quite a few names are leaked at this point," he explained to co-star Susanna Reid. 

"ITV quite like for its people not to confirm or deny because I could be a hare that's running in the race or I could just be a distraction." 

Madeley previously appeared on Channel 4's virtual reality series The Circle, where he participated as a catfish named Judy. 

Adam Woodyatt (Chances: High)

Eastenders star Adam Woodyatt has also reportedly signed up to this year's series. 

Currently taking time out from the BBC soap, it seems he's also been offered a six-figure deal in order to participate. 

Woodyatt has been the most attached name to this year's series so far. While he's not been confirmed, he's been largely considered a dead cert for a spot in the camp. 

Simon Gregson (Chances: High)

Coronation Street favourite Simon Gregson is also highly rumoured to be taking part in this year's Welsh adventure. 

The actor is best known for playing Steve McDonald, and has remained on the Manchester-based soap for the past 32 years. 

Perhaps he fancied a bit of a getaway by trading in the Rovers for the castle? 

Cheryl Hole (Chances: Moderate)

It's been reported that ITV are keen to bring a drag queen onto the show - and where else would you look than RuPaul's Drag Race.

Cheryl Hole appeared in the first series of the fan favourite, becoming known for her love of 90s pop and cheeky confessional chats. 

However, Cheryl's participation is not a dead cert - with fellow queens The Vivienne (who won season one), and Baga Chipz being connected to go instead.
