Joe Swash to make I'm A Celebrity return?
I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! 2008 winner Joe Swash will reportedly appear on the new series of the show in a mystery role.

Former I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! winner Joe Swash has reportedly signed up for a mystery role in the current series.

The 2020 edition of the show is underway at Gwrych Castle in Wales - a relocation from the usual location of Australia due to coronavirus - with celebrity campmates including Sir Mo Farah, Shane Richie, Vernon Kay and Beverley Callard.

Last week it emerged that ITV has signed up former winners Charlie Brooks and Vicky Pattison, as well as 2013 campmate Joey Essex, for a mystery role in the new series.

According to The Sun, ex-EastEnders star Swash - winner in 2008 - has now been added to the mix and will make an appearance on the show in the next couple of weeks.

"Joe was one of the show's most popular winners," a source told the newspaper. "He absolutely walked his year, bagging nearly 70% of the final vote over Martina [Navratilova] and George [Takei].

"When they were looking at those to invite back, he seemed a no-brainer.

"Just as with Vicky, Joey and Charlie, exactly what Joe will be doing in North Wales still remains to be seen.

"All sorts of things have been discussed and he's game for anything. He knows the show inside out so who better to have on board. He is buzzing."

Wednesday night's show will see the campmates joined by two late arrivals - opera singer Russell Watson and stage star Ruthie Henshall.
