Rebecca Adlington has signed up for I’m a Celebrity 2013, according to a newspaper report.

Double Olympic gold winner Rebecca is rumoured to have signed a deal for £80,000 to head down under for the ITV reality show hit, The Sun claims.

The retired freestyle swimmer, 24, is tipped to join the likes of Westlife singer Kian Egan, Big Mo EastEnders actress Laila Morse and TV presenter Matthew Wright in Australia in the jungle for the show, which is due to begin a week on Sunday.

Rebecca, who revealed in August that she was considered for a spot on Strictly Come Dancing, had previously dismissed her chances of appearing on the series fronted by Ant and Dec.

She said last year: “I’m absolutely awful with creepy-crawlies and I couldn’t eat that stuff they do in the jungle.”
