Olivia Attwood and Charlotte Dawson rumored to be in the running for latest installment of 'I'm a Celebrity...'
'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here' will have some extra star power when it returns to the small screens for its 18th season.
Since originally airing in 2002, 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' has been popular with the viewers. However, producers have been left sweating over the latest season because of the possibility of beloved host Ant McPartlin's absence.
The host has been ever-present on the reality show since its inception over a decade ago but since his drink-driving conviction this past March, Ant has been visibly absent from the small screen and will probably continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
It's a void that will be difficult to fill, but if the Sun is to be believed, the producers plan to do so by introducing two larger-than-life celebrities into the show. The tabloid reported that 27-year-old Olivia Attwood, who entertained audiences with her whiny character in 'Love Island' and Charlotte Dawson, best known for her roles in 'Celebs Go Dating' and 'Ex on the Beach,' have been approached to star in the coming season.
"The girls are both really sexy and bosses are hoping they'll have what it takes to spice up the show," a source told the paper, adding: "Both girls have loads of personality and would really get stuck into the jungle tasks. They'd both love a place on the show."
If the rumors are indeed true, then the fans are sure to be in for a treat. Both are eccentric personalities. Charlotte has an excellent sense of comic timing and wit, no doubt genes she inherited from legendary comic Les Dawson, while Olivia's hourglass figure has seen her rack up 1.5 million followers on Instagram and earned the envious stares of women all over.
It bodes well for the producers then, that the sources also told the Sun that Olivia had been eyeing up a spot in the reality show since last year. 'Love Island' co-stars Gabby Allen and Camilla Thurlow were said to be interested as well.
Christine McGuinness, Catherine Tyldesley, and Faye Brooks are also said to be under consideration to star in the upcoming installment of the show, though it's likely that the final list of 12 celebrities who will eventually make the trip into the jungle will not be ironbound any time soon.
