She’s the former Tasmanian senator who abruptly quit the Senate last month after getting caught up in the ongoing citizenship crisis.
And Jacqui Lambie is rumoured to be set for the upcoming season of Channel Ten’s I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, according to a tweet shared by entertainment reporter Peter Ford this week.
‘Caller to @RossAndJohn Rumour File has @JacquiLambie heading into the South African ‘jungle’ next month as a celebrity!’ he tweeted.
When contacted a spokesperson at network ten refused to confirm or deny whether Ms. Lambie would be on the show in season four next year.
‘Celebrities from all walks of life will go into the South African jungle in 2018, and there will be plenty of surprises this season for both the celebrities and viewers,’ a statement read.
However, a rep for the former senator denied she is headed to the South African jungle.
‘Jacqui will not make an appearance this year,’ a rep said.
‘Instead, choosing to focus on the election campaign for the Tasmanian election and the release of her book early next year.’
The choice of Ms. Lambie would be an easy one for producers.
The politician, who resigned from the senate after it was revealed she was a dual citizen of the U.K., is known for her controversial comments.
This year, Channel Ten confirmed hosts Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown will return to the show.
More teasers are expected to be released ahead of the show’s January premiere.
