The ITV show wants to move away from sending reality TV favourites into the jungle and give other celebs a chance.
‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here’ is reportedly set to ban reality TV stars from competing on the show, in favour of more “credible” names. Reality stars have traditionally had great success on the jungle show, but other former contestants are said to think they have an “unfair advantage.”

Despite a large number of complaints of cruelty, ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’ has avoided an investigation by the broadcasting watchdog Ofcom as it was satisfied with ITV’s explanations of how the incident was “in keeping” with audience expectations.
