I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! producers have tried to sign Katie Price up to make a shock return to the jungle, it has been reported.
According to the Daily Mail, the glamour model has been offered a £450,000 contract by producers who are hoping to use the public interest in her recent divorce to boost ratings.
A show insider reportedly said: "It will at least be not on the first night and she will enter the jungle unannounced. It is very cheeky and very bold.
"This would be the first time ever someone has gone back in. I am sure the advantage of it is that it will keep her on the front page day after day for two-and-a-half weeks without actually having to do anything. And it is absolute ratings dynamite."
However, Price currently is currently committed to some projects in the US which may clash with the programmes run this month.
A source close to the star stated: "I don't think she will be doing it, she is going to Los Angeles when the show starts - but never say never with Katie."
Price took part in the third series of Im A Celeb in 2004. It saw her fall for pop star and fellow contestant Peter Andre. The pair later married.
Peter Andre rejected a reported quarter of a million pounds to re-enter the jungle this year.
A source said: "Pete will be watching, but he'll be at home. He sees returning as a backward step."
I'm A Celeb is back on our screens from November 15 at 9pm on ITV1.
