I’m a Celeb: Who’s heading into the jungle?

WE'RE about a month away from finding out which stars will be heading into the jungle for the fourth season of I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!

The Channel 10 show has attracted some decent names since it launched in 2015 with international stars including Tom Arnold, Carson Kressley and Maureen McCormick joining local celebs including Shane Warne, Tziporah Malkah and Chrissie Swan.

So who can we expect to see in the jungle when the show launches at the end of January?

Rumours are swirling that a certain sitcom star from the 90s is close to signing on the dotted line.

It's none other than the flashy girl from Flushing, the nanny named Fran.

If the rumours are true and Fran Drescher does appear on the show, it would be a huge drawcard for I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! given how popular The Nanny was in Australia.

Channel 10 has slowly been releasing clues about some of the other stars who are locked in for the reality show in which the celebs compete for $100,000 to be donated to a charity of their choosing.

Here are the clues and our guesses as to who they could be:

• Clue: An iconic Australian comedian. This much-loved comedian married into one of Australia's most famous families.

Guess: Our money is on Glenn Robbins. He's certainly an iconic Aussie comedian and his character from Kath & Kim, Kel Knight, married into one of Australia's most famous families.

The happy couple: Kath and Kel.

• Clue: Two celebrities in the middle of Australia's biggest feud. This Australian duo are used to clashing in real life.

Guess: Hmm, this is a tough one. Could it be The Veronicas who had a very public falling out on Twitter in mid-November? Or could it be Rove McManus and Kyle Sandilands who have been trading barbs for years?

• Clue: An AFL champion. This premiership-winning player is known for their hair-raising play.

Guess: Well, there have been more than 2000 AFL players who have won premierships so this one is a little tough to narrow down, but our money is on former Brisbane Lions star, Jason Akermanis.

He's won three premierships and rocked some rather spectacular bleached hair for a chunk of his playing career.

• Clue: An Australian rocker. This Australian legend has had album and single sales in excess of one million.

Guess: Our top contenders are Diesel [real name Mark Lizotte], Jimmy Barnes or even Ben Gilles from Silverchair who is no stranger to reality TV as his wife, Jackie Gilles, stars on The Real Housewives of Melbourne.

• Clue: A world champion. This sporting superstar has a strong social conscience.

Guess: Another toughie, but we'd be thrilled if it was Nova Peris, Ian Thorpe or even David Pocock [although he's not technically a world champion].
