Victoria Derbyshire is set to take part in this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
According to the Sun, Victoria will join Vernon Kay, AJ Pritchard, Jessica Plummer and Beverley Callard in the Welsh castle.
The Victoria Derbyshire show – which aired every weekday morning on BBC Two and the BBC News Channel – was axed in March of this year due to cuts to the news budget.
Since then Vcitoria has been the main presenter of BBC News at Nine on BBC One and the standard edition of BBC World News simulcast at 10:00am on BBC Two, BBC News Channel and BBC World News.
An insider told the newspaper: “Victoria is always game for a challenge so when she was approached for I’m A Celebrity she jumped at the chance.
“It’s always something she’s wanted to do but because of her family she’s never wanted to fly to Australia and be away from them for so long.
“When the show moved to Wales and the opportunity came up, she didn’t want to look a gift horse in the mouth so said yes straight away.
“Victoria is really looking forward to the challenges and to getting started on the show.”
I’m A Celebrity will kick off next month at Gwrych Castle in North Wales with Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly returning to host the ITV show.
