Im a Celeb bosses line up back up contestant in case stars pull out of show

I'm a Celebrity bosses have reportedly lined up a music star as their 'reserve' celebrity, who will take a place on the show in case anyone drops out from the upcoming ITV series.

Leon Rolle, otherwise known as DJ Locksmith from Rudimental is the back up star for the series, known for hits including Feel the Love, Not Giving In and Waiting All Night, according to The Independent.

It is not uncommon for reserve stars to take part in the show, after Radio 1 DJ Jordan North joined the 2020 series, when rapper Naughty Boy had to pull out due to a family crisis.

However, Naughty Boy is set to make a return to I'm a Celebrity this year, which will be filmed at Gwrych Castle campsite in Wales for the second time.

Although ITV have not confirmed the official line-up for I'm a Celebrity: Get me Out of Here 2021, stars including The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge have been photographed arriving in Wales ahead of the show launch.

Other stars said to be taking part also include television presenter Richard Madeley, EastEnders Ian Beale star Adam Woodyatt and footballer David Ginola.

Talking to Daily Star, Thomas Law who used to play Ian Beale's son Peter on the BBC soap, said he thinks Adam will go far on I'm a Celebrity.

"I will watch anything that Adam is on," he said.

"I think he would be very useful as a campmate, he's got a really interesting life."

However it could be that show bosses' reserve star Locksmith wins the show if one of the current contestants drops out, as reserve stars have a history of going quite far in the series.

Last year, reserve star Jordan North was close to winning before coming second to Giovanna Fletcher.

Whoever wins I'm a Celebrity 2021, which once again will be hosted by Ant and Dec, the show is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated series yet.

I'm A Celeb returns on November 21 at 9pm on ITV.
