Every year whispers begin way ahead of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! starting on which famous faces have signed up to take part.

And even though it is still not confirmed if the 2021 stint of the reality series will return to Australia this year, after the Coronavirus pandemic led to the 2020 show being filmed in North Wales, there are still several big names that are rumoured to be preparing to join hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly on the line-up.

From a Good Morning Britain personality to a mega pop sensation here is a look at all the celebrities that are speculated to be in talks for the ITV reality show.

It is not the first time that controversial broadcaster Piers Morgan's name is being thrown about for the 2021 series of I'm A Celeb.

However, this year the chances of him taking part seem likelier than ever - seeing as he stepped down from GMB this year and has joked about being jobless.

The former newspaper has previously jibed that he would take part for "£10million" and Ant recently teased that Piers has plenty of time to take part this year during an appearance on Lorraine.

The cheeky Geordie suggested the former Good Morning Britain host would be a good addition to the 2021 line-up during a chat with Lorraine Kelly on ITV's Lorraine at the start of May.

Ant and co-star Dec, both 45, have shared in the past that they would be keen to get the former newspaper editor in the jungle and Ant says now would be the perfect time for bolshy Piers to sign up following his departure from GMB.

Speaking on the chat show, via video link, Ant teased: "He's not working at the moment, so you know, he'll be looking for a job."

Lorraine replied: "He's got a bit of time on his hands, who knows."

Little Mix hitmaker Jade Thirlwall has teased that she is game to appear on the reality show - and seeing as her bandmates are both pregnant it could be the perfect solo project for the singer.

During an appearance on Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston's Heart FM show, Jade shared that she is keen to be on the line-up.

Asked if she would be open to an I'm A Celeb role, she told: "I'll try anything once me, do you know what I mean? I'll give it a crack."

Hinting that she has thought about it and how she would handle the Bushtucker trials, she continued: "If something smells bad I won't put it in my mouth, but I am good at creepy crawlies."

BBC personality Matt Baker could be heading into camp.

The Countryfile presenter recently stepped down from his co-hosting role on The One Show - freeing up time in his schedule.

When quizzed on if he would take the plunge and star on the ITV show, he told Hello! : "I haven't had any conversations yet. I am reluctant to say no to anything without having a good think about it."

British drag queen The Vivienne seemed to throw her hat in the ring when chatting to Lorraine last year.

As they spoke about her career, talk show icon Lorraine asked The Vivienne - real name James Lee Williams - if entering the Australian bush was on her agenda.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne shared: "Do you know what, I've never thought about it but what an absolutely amazing opportunity that would be!"

Proving that she would be open to being on the series she added: "Get me to that jungle, what a great life opportunity. I am all for that!"

Lorraine then hinted that she is going to pull some strings with ITV bosses to make it happen as she replied: "I'm going to make a call!"

I'm A Celebrity bosses are reportedly desperate to sign football legend Eric Cantona - after showing their fondness for him last year.

Manchester United star Eric, 53, would be a dream signing for the hit ITV show as he's known for his outlandish and quirky persona.

Show producer Richard Cowles said that he reckons the Frenchman would be a great hire.

He said at a Q&A, last year: "I just like the idea of Eric Cantona talking in French and coming up with really profound things."

Katie Price's former husband Kieran Hayler recently confirmed that I'm A Celeb bosses had been in touch with him for the 2020 series but seeing as he was not on the line-up, maybe he will be on the upcoming cast list.

He told New! magazine: "I'd love to go on 'I'm A Celeb'. I think there have been talks, but I don't know for sure. I'd love to do it because I'm into the outdoors anyway so for me it would be really cool."

He added: "I think it's just the eating stuff I'd be a bit rubbish at - and it's closer to home now I've heard."

Sporting legend John Barnes teased fans that he was going on the show last year after he made comments on taking part in trials.

Speaking to Bonus Code Bets BonusCodeBets.co.uk about I'm a Celeb, Barnes said: "I've done a number of shows in my days, from Family Fortune to Strictly Come Dancing but nothing as adventurous as I'm a Celeb. And to be honest, there's nothing that I wouldn't eat or anything I wouldn't do...I'm fairly easy-going, if they asked me to do something, I'd do it.

"I've done a number of shows in my days but nothing as adventurous as I'm a Celeb," he told The Mirror. "And to be honest, there's nothing that I wouldn't eat or anything I wouldn't do. I'm fairly easy-going, if they asked me to do something, I'd do it."

He added: "Similar to why I went on to do Strictly Come Dancing all those years ago, it'd be good to lose some weight, perhaps try to beat Nick Knowles' two-stone weight loss."

Seeing as he was absent from the castle last year - could John be getting ready for an appearance in 2021?

Former EastEnders star Tamzin Outhwaite's name has been lined to I'm A Celeb for years - yet she has never stepped foot in the jungle of castle.

It was previously reported that she said no to a stint on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing to be available for I'm A Celebrity but Tamzin has firmly said she has not discussed taking part.

She told OK! magazine: "I don't understand where this rumour has come from. I even have my family asking me if it is true and I have to tell them no!"

Last year, Love Island's Amy Hart told how she would love to be approached for the series.

"Well apparently so but I haven't heard that, I mean I would love to do it," she told OnlineCasinos.

"I love reality TV - I've been a big fan of reality TV for years, and I love new experiences and learning new skills. There's not a lot I wouldn't do, just for fun. I just think where else are you going to get the chance to ballroom dance or ice skate."

Maybe Amy's dreams will come true and she will get the all-important call from ITV.
