I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia 2021 line-up ‘revealed’: Bec Hewitt, Pete Evans and Tammy Hembrow lead the list of rumours stars
Channel 10 is still months away from announcing the line-up for the new season of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
But that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from going into overdrive, with Woman’s Day reporting that several controversial stars are being considered by the network.
Disgraced celebrity chef Pete Evans and party-loving Instagram sensation Tammy Hembrow are both tipped to head into the jungle early next year.

Another candidate on Channel 10’s wish list is former soap actress Bec Hewitt.
‘It’s no secret that producers have been angling to get Bec and Lleyton on the show for years – their combined star power would be an absolute ratings smash hit,’ a source said.
‘The fact they’re filming in Australia means it will be so much easier for Bec to commit,’ they added.
In addition to Bec, Pete and Tammy, the likes of Tania Zaetta, Ian Thorpe, George Calombaris and Abbie Chatfield are said to be in the running.

They may face an advertiser boycott, however, if they elect to go with ‘Paleo’ Pete.
Online campaign group Sleeping Giants, which lobbies companies not to advertise with certain outlets deemed ‘problematic’, has been targeting any television network which provides Evans employment.
The rumoured new line-up comes after Daily Mail Australia revealed that AFL legend Robert ‘Dipper’ DiPierdomenico would be appearing on the new series.

The forthcoming season is set to shift production from South Africa to Northern New South Wales amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Australian production will take over the set used by the UK version of the show.
