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.”

Vicky Pattison has been temporarily forced into using a wheelchair after her feet were left numb and bleeding following an intensive trek in Iceland for charity.
28 year old Pattison, the winner of last year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity…’ and former ‘Geordie Shore’ star, teamed up with Chloe Madeley for a lengthy hike across the Icelandic wilderness for breast cancer charity CoppaFeel.
When she finished, Pattison went to the doctor because she had lost all feeling in her feet, and she was confined to a wheelchair while they recovered. On Thursday morning (August 11th) she posted a picture on Instagram of herself putting a brave face on proceedings as she made her way home through the airport terminal.

A source told the newspaper: “Vicky won ‘I’m A Celeb’ by a landslide so everyone knows she is popular, especially with a younger audience. ITV are desperate to keep a hold of her and invest in her as a future star. She really impressed ‘Loose Women’s editors when she was a guest this month.”
