Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington is set to dive into the jungle for the new series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! according to reports.

The swimmer, who won two golds in 2008, will join a line-up of ex-soap actors and reality TV stars in the new series which starts on Sunday.

The Sun reported Adlington is one of a dozen celebrities taking part including Towie star Joey Essex, Westlife's Kian Egan, snooker player Steve Davis and Miss Great Britain Amy Willerton.

Also heading out to Australia are former EastEnder Laila Morse, TV presenter Matthew Wright, Emmerdale's Lucy Pargeter and Alfonso Ribeiro who starred in The fresh Prince of Bel Air opposite Will Smith.

The line-up is completed by former Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone, TV presenter Annabel Giles and David Emanuel - best known for designing Princess Diana's wedding dress.
