I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! bosses searching for A-listers

ITV bosses are desperate to attract some A-List stars for this year's "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!".

The popular reality show was blasted in 2017 for featuring a number of little-known contestants, including YouTuber Jack Maynard and comedienne Shappi Khorsandi, but casting executive Daisy Moore has since left her position and moved to another role within ITV.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The pressure will be on to hire someone new who can find decent household names."

An insider at ITV has claimed that Daisy felt it was "time for a change", although she remains "very much part of the ITV family".

Meanwhile, last year's winner, Georgia "Toff" Toffolo, recently revealed she almost turned down the chance to star on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!".

The blonde beauty has been open about her battle with acne since she left the jungle last year, but confessed she almost rejected the chance to appear on the programme, because she feared people would realise the extent of her skin issues.

She shared: "It was really close.

"What would be the point in going on the UK's biggest show being all upset and self-conscious? I am only me with my foundation."

However, Toff is now keen to use her celebrity status to boost the self-confidence of other people experiencing similar anxieties.

Toff - who makes regular appearances on "This Morning" - explained: "We're launching this big self-confidence campaign on "This Morning". I've been overwhelmed by the response. I've had people find pictures of me that they'll upload on to social media. They'll tag me and say: "Oh my God, look at Georgia's skin."

"I don't respond, I just ignore it. But I don't block anyone. I think the haters should be embarrassed about what they've said."
