Reports that Royal Family member Mike Tindall is due to join this year's I'm A Celeb have sent reality TV fans into absolute overdrive.
- Mike Tindall is reportedly set to join the lineup for ITV's hit reality TV show, which sees celebrities camp in the Australian wilds and partake in gross-out challenges.

Just when you thought the fact that I'm A Celebrity All Stars is in the works was exciting enough, it looks as though things are about to get a heck of a lot more thrilling.
According to reports from The Sun, a source close to the show said of the news, “It’s a massive coup. Mike has had a box seat for some of the most important moments in royal history for generations. He is sure to be discreet, but his sheer presence means this series will be an absolute must-watch.”
These reports remain just that - reports - but eagle-eyed fans may have noticed a recent Instagram post from Mike, alongside his fellow former rugby player James Haskell. James formerly appeared on I'm A Celeb so here's hoping, if Mike does star in the show, that he got some tips from his old pal.
