Another Australian season of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here is just around the corner, and now we’ve been given some major hints as to who will be heading to the jungle.

Channel Ten has dropped its big clues on Twitter, revealing two politicians, an AFL champion, a celebrity chef and a red carpet regular will be in the mix.

Last year comedian Fiona O’Loughlin took out the winning crown, so who will follow in her footsteps? 

By following those clues, we’ve put together a shortlist of stars with I’m A Celeb potential.

Celebrity chef

The clue we’ve been given is that this famous culinary expert’s talents in fact extend beyond the kitchen.

They are also a TV personality and an author.

My Kitchen Rules judge Pete Evans immediately comes to mind, though network contract clashes could pose as an issue as he’s appearing on the Channel Seven cooking show in 2018.

Julie Goodwin has previously appeared on I’m A Celeb, and what’s not to say another MasterChef contestant doesn’t follow in her footsteps?

Poh Ling Yeow, Justine Schofield and Adam Liaw are some memorable names, while judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston could also be in with a chance to visit the jungle.

If we were to look internationally, Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson would be a producer’s dream come true.

Two politicians

While many politicians know exactly how to dodge answering a juicy question, there’s some who can’t stop talking the moment they leave Parliament House.

Pauline Hanson doesn’t shy away from controversy and could make for some eyebrow-raising conversation in the jungle.

Meanwhile Sam Dastyari, Mark Latham and Jacqui Lambie also come to mind.

Red carpet regular

The clue we’ve given for this one is that the personality “will be doing more than just dishing the dirt”.

As far as showbiz gurus go in Australia, Richard Reid and Angela Bishop are known for dishing the goss, while Ksenija Lukich is a regular on the VIP social circuit.

Unfortunately Perez Hilton is not jetting Down Under this time around, with the gossip king from the US confirming he’s not part of the 2019 Aussie series.

AFL legend

We’ve been told the sportsman is “known for his hair-raising play”, so Warwick Capper and his unforgettable streaked mullet understandably comes to mind.

If we don’t take the clue so literally, Chris Judd could be another I’m A Celeb potential.

In the past AFL players Barry Hall, Josh Gibson and Dane Swan have appeared on the show.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here premieres on January 13 on Channel Ten, with Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown returning as hosts.
