Love Island's Jonny Mitchell could soon be swapping the Mallorcan sunshine for the Australian outback as I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! bosses have reportedly set their sights on him.

The bearded lothario was responsible for causing much of the drama on the ITV2 show, after pairing up with Camilla Thurlow before dropping her for Tyla Carr, and then getting infuriated when new boy Theo Campbell started eyeing up brunette model Tyla.

Since leaving the villa, he hasn't stopped his bad boy antics, pairing up with Chyna Ellis before mugging her off live on the reunion show. It was also reported that he had a threesome with two stunning women on the night of the reunion catch-up.

And now it seems he could continue his troublemaking streak, as The Sun have reported he might be entering the jungle for this year's I'm A Celebrity.

According to the publication, bosses requested a meeting with Jonny, who has also hit headlines for his "fake millionaire" lifestyle.

"Bosses said he would be the perfect hunk for the show and have asked him to come for a meeting," a source told The Sun. "Obviously he’s over the moon and would jump at the chance. He sparked controversy in the villa and if he did the same in the jungle it’d make excellent telly viewing – especially if there was a romance.”

If Jonny was signed up for I'm A Celebrity, it would be another sign of just how successful Love Island has been this year. Since the programme finished, many of the stars have already signed up for lucrative deals, with winner Kem Cetinay landing his own spin-off show following his bromance with Chris Hughes.

Runners-up Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt have been using their fame for somewhat more worthwhile causes, meanwhile, and are currently visiting a refugee camp in Thessaloniki, Greece.
