I'm a Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here! kicks off on November 15 and promises to be one of the toughest series yet if the list of Bushtucker Trials is anything to go by. Bush pig semen anyone?

Here's a rundown on what to expect from the aforementioned trials to who's rumoured to be packing up their backpacks for three weeks of jungle trials and tribulations.

Catch the action from the safety of your sofa from 9pm, November 15, on ITV with spin off Get Me Out of Here Now! on ITV2 at 10pm.

What's in store for the Bushtuckers?

One of the trials this year is called Sun Scream and involves contestants smearing fish guts and other horrid concoctions all over each other's skin.

Sheep testicles will feature in another - 10 in fact.  It's like the limbo except as the celebs bend under the cane they have to carry 10 sheep testicles in their mouths.

Also, if you thought the food trials couldn't get any more horrendous consider these - bush pig semen, camel penis porridge, boiled sheep testicles, rat tail soup, cow lips and duck feet.

Yum.

Who's rumoured to be vying for King/Queen of the jungle this year?

Louis Walsh, music mogul and former X Factor judge.

Louis was ditched from the X Factor judging panel after 10 series and although he's busy managing Shane Filan and Hometown he may well be prepping for a stint in the jungle.

Initially he said he wasn't up for "silly" reality shows, but more recently he's been saying, "Let's see what happens.  That is all I am saying.  I'm not saying I said no.  I'm am not saying I said yes.  Let's see what happens."

Vicky Pattison, reality TV regular.

The Geordie Shore and Ex on the Beach star has repeatedly said she's in the market for I'm a Celebrity.

"I have no made secret that it’s a massive, massive dream of mine to be part of the jungle," she told Anton Savage on Today FM recently.

"It’s one of those things that’s completely on my bucket list. I don’t know, there’s been nothing confirmed.”

Brian Frideman, creative director and choreographer on The X Factor.

Having spent so many years behind the scenes, it looks like Brian may feel it's time to feature in front of the camera for a change.

Chloe Mafia, Playboy model and X Factor reject.

Mafia's representative recently told The Mirror: "Chloe loves reality TV shows and is a big fan of Celebrity Big Brother and The Jump. Her good friend Fatman Scoop is currently in Celeb BB... Chloe was previously asked to do a reality show but chose to stay in the USA to focus on her career as a Playboy Playmate... However, now she's back in the UK she's open to doing reality TV, she'd make very entertaining TV."

Gemma Oaten, Emmerdale actress.

A source told the Daily Star: "Gemma has had producers in stitches. She's a down-to-earth northern lass who likes a drink and a laugh but there's also a serious side to her. She's been through a lot and is open about it all. The producers really liked her honesty. She's also single and looks great in a bikini – she's nothing at all like her dowdy Emmerdale character."

Caitlyn Jenner, transgender TV star and retired athlete.

Caitlyn's transition has been documented on E! reality show I Am Caitlyn, a spin off of Keeping Up With the Kardashians on which Caitlyn had featured for several years as the Kardashian/Jenner clan's father and step-father.  Having Caitlyn on I'm a Celebrity would be a massive coup for ITV although it's unlikely Caitlyn will feel she needs the show at this point.

Anne Robinson (71), TV presenter.

She said she "just wouldn't do it" but was reportedly offered £750,000 this year which may be enough to tempt to 71-year-old TV star.

Paul Gascoigne, former footballer.

Gazza won 57 caps for England but has had his fair share of troubles due to his battle with alcoholism.  Just this week he was fined and made subject to a restraining order, after he pleaded guilty to sending a series of abusive tweets, phone calls and messages to his ex-girlfriend.

Simon Danczuk, Labour MP.

"I can't comment on I'm a Celebrity!!" he tweeted, indicating he may have signed up and is being told not to comment.  Otherwise wouldn't he just quash the rumours?

Duncan Bannatyne, Dragon's Den dragon.

The Scottish businessman appeared on Dragon's Den for 10 years and now may be exactly the right time to try something new.  He also tweeted recently that he was heading somewhere with his girlfriend Nigora Whitehorn, "Where are we going?".  Very cryptic.
