"I’m trying to keep my career going"

The surprises just keep on coming when it comes to the latest series of I’m A Celeb.

From Jack Maynard’s shock exit from the show less than a week in following a whirlwind of controversy, to the shock news that Carol Vorderman has touched down in Brisbane for a rumoured foray into the jungle.

And now another celeb has thrown their hat into the mix of stars clambering to test their bush survival skills on the hit reality show. Appearing on Lorraine with her son Shane Jr Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan seemed to put a not-so-subtle call out to show producers that she’s ready to don some khaki and munch on insects.

Shane Jr kicked off proceedings by saying, “I’d love to go in the jungle… I just think conquering your fears. I hate snakes. Heights I’ve not got an issue with.”

To which his mum replied, “Maybe they need a mother and son in the jungle.”

Coleen Nolan in I’m A Celebrity – could it really happen?

But as much as we’d love to see this unlikely reality duo head to Oz there are a couple of obstacles standing in their way. Number one is the fact that Shane Jr is keen to put a little distance between him and the apron strings.

Facing his mum on the hit daytime show, he said bluntly, “Why do we have to do everything together, what is your problem?!”

Naturally miffed, Coleen came back with, “I’m trying to keep my career going through my children. Shameless!”

Second is the fact that both mum and son are doing panto, with their no-doubt hilarious run of Cinderella at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford kicking off on December 16th.

But in the drama-filled world of reality TV nothing is set in stone, so we can’t wait to see what other surprises the new series brings!
