Jesy Nelson is wanted for Bear Hunt

The former Little Mix singer is expected to head to Costa Rica next month for the new Netflix series - which will see famous faces trained by survival expert Bear Grylls embark on a series of challenges - and producers think she'll be a great signing for the show, particularly as it will provide the 32-year-old star with a springboard to relaunch her solo career.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper's Bizarre column: “Casting agents have approached Jesy to see if she would be interested and have deep pockets to ensure it’s worth her time financially. She has a huge fanbase and the reality challenge series would be the perfect comeback for her.

“Filming takes place for a few weeks so she won’t even be away from home and her creature comforts for too long.

“Jesy will be incredible.”

Last summer, the 'Boyz' hitmaker revealed she was planning to take some time off to see the world.

She wrote on Instagram: "Hey guys! So for a long time I’ve really wanted to go travelling but never had the time to do it.

“I’ve got some really exciting things coming up with work and my music, but until then I’m gonna take the summer off to travel the world.

“I’m going to be off my social media, I love you all so much and I’ll see you when I’m back.”

It was previously revealed Netflix planned to spare no expense when it came to securing bookings for the Holly Willoughby-hosted show.

A source told The Sun newspaper's TV Biz column: "On similar celebrity-led challenge shows like 'Strictly' and 'I’m a Celeb', the line-ups often vary from little-known people to established stars.

"Netflix are determined their collection will be largely killer, with very little filler. They’re not scrimping on paying six-figure fees and aren’t afraid to cough up more for the biggest names.

“They’ll be shelling out an eight-figure sum in all, so the cast will be one of the most expensive in reality TV history.”
