Former Ipswich Town footballer Jimmy Bullard will be in this year’s I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, according to reports.

The ITV jungle show returns on Sunday with a new line-up of celebrities, and the former Blues midfielder has reportedly been pictured arriving in Australia to take part.

An ITV spokesman said: “Any stories about contestants going in the jungle are speculative and we don’t comment on them. The line-up for this year’s series will be issued later this week.”

In total, Bullard made 37 appearances for Town. The 36-year-old joined on loan in January 2011, scoring on his debut before winning the Supporters’ Player of the Year award, despite only being with the club for three months.

He was signed to a permanent deal for the 2011/12 season before being released in August 2012.

Also rumoured taking part in the hit jungle show, hosted by Ant and Dec, this year are Allo Allo! actress Vicki Michelle and former motorcycle world champion Carl Fogarty.

Bullard would join them in facing spiders, snakes and cockroaches in the bushtucker trials.

  • Giffo, you can bend statistics anyway you want. I know Ipswich season ticket holders who live in darkest Norfolk, not all attendees of the home games come from Ipswich or Norwich.

  • Well hello john smyth, how are you? I'm a little bored this lunch so have decided to try some number crunching. As Mike Tyreson pointed out, norwich = 230,000 population and Ipswich = 133,000 population (which after checking is quite accurate). Now take into account an average crown so far this season for norwich of 26,148 and an average crowd for Ipswich of 17,792 you will find that 11.37% of norwich's population attend the games compared to 13.38% of Ipswich's population. Enjoy

  • smyth,did you notice that i did not talk about results ? I have enjoyed dialogue with 'proper' Norwich supporters about our clubs and other football matters on both this site and EDP.The whole point about my piece is that it depends on the demographic of the area,predictably your comments are both stupid and childish.

  • Here's a little fact for you miketyreson... your neighbors in Norfolk were getting higher attendances in League 1 than 1p5wich were in the championship. Shameful. Now until you're promoted into the top flight, i wouldn't keep gloating about recent results

  • I notice that john smyth has stopped talking about the impending doom that awaits Ipswich this year on the football front and has now switched to the groundcrowdatmosphere tact.A few facts and figures for you smtyh.Norfolk has a population of 870.000 approx. While Suffolk has a population of about 730.000.The population of Norwich is about 230.000 while at Ipswich it is around 133.000.Take in to account that we have another club on our doorstep (15 miles) in Colchester (you remember them don't you) ? And i think that you will find that it is around about the same as you pro rata.

  • John Smyth. . . Like to predict a winner? Maybe Mark Robson? Even Delia may be heading to the jungle this year, rather than watching the rubbish at carrot road!!

  • A programme which panders to the very lowest taste in our decadent and declining society; where cruelty to animals is saluted; where nobodies go to become somebodies. But it is popular .... and that is my biggest worry.
