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

Share article:

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!".

"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."
