Nadia Forde could soon be crunching on creepy-crawlies and roughing it in the Aussie jungle after being linked with I'm a Celebrity…

The top model (24) has been steadily building up her profile in the UK after releasing her debut single BPM there earlier this month.

Now the Clontarf star could be in line for the hit ITV reality show.

Her management team at Marshall Arts are said to be in "advanced talks" with producers about her appearing in the show as this year's "eye-candy".

When asked about the rumours, Nadia kept her cards close to her chest but did not deny the reports.

"I can't comment on that," she said. "I've had loads of conversations about TV stuff. I'm not saying any more."

The half-Italian beauty first sprang to prominence in the UK after making it into FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest 
Women in the World list. Her single is also performing well in the UK urban charts, coming in at number 22 last week.

But she could be leaving these shores for the sunny climes of Australia, should she make it on to the popular programme.

It would be a huge boost for Nadia's star power if she is chosen for the show.

Presented by Ant and Dec, it regularly pulls in 10 million viewers and is a 
staple in ITV's November schedule.

Nadia has been consistently trying to branch out from modelling over the past year.

She also starred in 3e documentary Nadia Goes to Hollywood, which chron-
icled her steady rise to fame, with a second show already in the pipeline.
