Jamie Lynn Spears is reportedly set to take part in 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'
The 32-year-old actress - who is best known for appearing on Nickelodeon in the late 2000s - is the younger sister of pop legend Britney, 41, and is said to be set for an appearance on the ITV1 jungle survival show when it returns to screens on November 19.
In recent years, Jamie Lynn has become estranged from her sister - who regained control of her multimillion-dollar fortune and various aspects of her life when a conservatorship governed by her immediate family was terminated in 2021 - over her alleged involvement in the arrangement and now producers are hoping that she will open up about their "history" during her time in the Australian Outback.
A source told The Daily Mirror: "Jamie Lynn has got decades of history and bad blood with Britney to rake over and has laid out her feelings pretty clearly in her own book. It will be interesting to hear her spill the beans about her life and her family and the controversial conservatorship - and to find out whether the sisters really do get along now - or not."
In her recent memoir 'The Woman in Me, 'Circus' hitmaker Britney alleged that Jamie Lynn - who recently competed on US ballroom show 'Dancing with the Stars - that the former 'Zoey 101' star had been selling "salacious stories" on her whilst "capitalising" on the situation with the publication of her own memoir 'Things I Should Have Said'.
She wrote: "As I was fighting the conservatorship and receiving a lot of press attention, she was writing a book capitalising on it. She rushed out salacious stories about me, many of them hurtful and outrageous. I was really let down. Shouldn't sisters be able to confess their fear or vulnerability to each other without that later being used as evidence of instability?
"Along with the rest of them, she kept acting like I was a threat in some way. This will sound crazy, but I'll say it again because it's the truth: I thought they were going to try to kill me"
Several stars have been linked to the upcoming series, including JLS singer Marvin Humes, jockey Frankie Dettori, soap stars Danielle Harold and Nick Pickard, politician Nigel Farage, and 'This Morning' host Josie Gibson.
It was previously claimed Nigel was offered a staggering £1 million to take part and he recently admitted he is "seriously considering" going into camp this year after rejecting past approaches.
Speaking on his GB News show, he said: "Several times since 2016 I've had 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' from ITV saying to me, 'Come into the jungle.'
"And they've always offered me really quite substantial sums of money to do so, and I have always thought 'No, it's probably not the right thing for me to do.' "
'MasterChef' star Grace Dent is also expected to take part in the show.
A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper's TV Biz column: "'MasterChef' fans know Grace for her withering put-downs of contestants’ food and disdain for anything less than stellar cooking.
"But she’ll be eating humble pie in the jungle, surviving on rice and beans and taking part in Bushtucker trials."
