Perez Hilton will intrude in I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here tomorrow night as 10’s “Gossip Guru.”
The Herald Sun reports Hilton was initially approached to do last year’s season before casting agents went cold and successfully asked Richard Reid to appear (who went on to win the series).
Adding an international name to the cast is a coup for 10 which has mixed success with some in the past including Maureen McCormick, Carson Kressley, Tom Arnold, Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff, Vicky Pattison, Paul Burrell, Tiffany and Katherine Kelly Lang.
Hilton is no stranger to reality television having appeared on Celebrity Rap Superstar, Worst Cooks in America and Celebrity Big Brother UK but proved to be provocative with housemates, including using offensive and threatening language…. that should make for interesting headlines.
It isn’t clear how long he will stay as an intruder, but a hefty price tag might suggest not for too long.
Meanwhile expect the show’s finale on Sunday February 2 (against the Australian Open Men’s Final), but that’s yet to be confirmed.
A little birdie has informed us that a gossip guru is making their way into the South African jungle for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! And not so secret squirrel – apparently this influencer is world famous for their feuds. And, they’re bringing the tea and we bet it’s scathing hot. Talk about the mouth from the South… of Africa. They might be a gossip queen… but will they be the queen of the jungle?
