Ben Shephard reacts as he ‘confirms’ ITV co-star has joined I’m A Celeb line-up

GMB: Ben Shephard on Josie Gibson entering I’m a Celeb

Ben Shephard has shared his thoughts on the rumoured I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! line-up as it featured his friend and co-star Josie Gibson.

On Friday’s instalment of Good Morning Britain, the host was speaking about the speculation of stars heading down under.

Ben replied: “The Sun has said this is as close to the line-up that they know of, but we can have a look at some of the runners and riders.”

As the panel were speaking, an image of the rumoured stars appeared on-screen as the hosts chatted about who could potentially be going in.

Ben continued: “Tony Bellew the boxer, absolute legend. Marvin Humes in there as well, of course, Fred Siriex.”

However, it seemed as though he accidentally revealed his ITV co-star would be heading into the jungle as Iain noticed Josie Gibson’s image.

Ben replied: “The lovely Josie Gibson is going to be in there.”

Earlier this year it’s believed the This Morning presenter was approached by both I’m A Celeb bosses and the BBC to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

Believed to be in the centre of a bidding war, sources claim Josie was offered a six-figure sum to lure her away from the ballroom.

It looks as though Ben Shephard isn’t the only ITV star to let slip that the 38-year-old is heading down under either.

On Thursday last week, Rylan Clark gave a cryptic message to Josie as they ended their four-day stint together hosting This Morning.

Before the show came to a close, he commented: “Good luck….with everything.”

It looks as though This Morning viewers are convinced she’s heading into the jungle too after it was revealed she won’t be presenting the ITV show next week.

@RKiernan_ commented: “Hmmm Cat Deely & Rylan but no mention of Josie yeah she’s in the jungle.”

@MitchellWebb85 added: “She’s gonna smash it.”

Other stars rumoured to be entering the Australian jungle include Nigel Farage, Sam Thompson, Jamie-Lynn Spears, and Nella Rose.
