Ulrika Jonsson is reportedly in talks to star on "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!".

The 51-year-old TV presenter - who announced earlier this year that she was set to divorce her husband of 11 years, Brian Monet - has already held discussions with ITV bosses about appearing on the popular show.

An insider said: "Ulrika has been through a lot in the past few years. And now that she is getting divorced she feels the time is right for a new challenge.

"The Australian jungle certainly fits that description. And she knows that if she signs, it will be the first of many new TV contracts coming her way.

"Ulrika is keen to throw herself back into her presenting work full time and she feels that this could be the right first step for her."
