I'm a Celebrity 2018 contestant rumours – Tim Henman, Nick Knowles and Frankie Bridge tipped for the jungle
Speculation is growing over who may or not be heading to Australia for the 2018 series. Here we take a look at three rumoured contestants.
Who are the latest rumoured celebrities tipped for I'm A Celebrity 2018?
One of Britain's most recognisable and respected sportsmen, who reached multiple grand-slam semi-finals all over the world, Tim Henman certainly knows what it takes to compete in tough conditions.
The former tennis pro, who was once ranked No 4 in the world, has been tipped for a stint in the jungle.
Henman made his professional debut way back in 1993 and during his career, he and the country endured agony and ecstasy as fought to win Wimbledon, the one tournament he wanted more than any other.
Despite four semi-final appearances Henman was unable to end the long wait for a British male singles champion at SW19 – with Andy Murry finally achieving that which Henman couldn't in 2013.
Since retiring in 2007, Henman has played multiple exhibition tournaments around the world and has also featured as part of the BBC's commentary team at Wimbledon each summer.
In December 1999 Henman married his longtime girlfriend Lucy Heald and the couple have three daughters – Rose, Olivia and Grace.
Nick Knowles was born in Southall, Middlesex, on September 21, 1962, to parents Pat and Eddie.
He has one brother, John and three sisters – Angela, Sheila and Karen.
When he was 11, his family moved to Mildenhall, Suffolk, before moving again to Kent where he attended The Skinners’ School.
Nick was married in the 1990s and after he and his wife, with whom he had three children, separated, he met fellow TV presenter Suzi Perry and they lived together for three years.
He then met Jessica Rose Moor in 2009, they were married in 2012 and their son Eddie was born in 2014.
They separated in January 2016 but he supported her through her battle with cervical cancer which she won.
Following her recovery, Jessica decided to give their marriage a second try – but their relationship ended for good in December 2016.
The DIY SOS presenter also enjoyed a short-lived romance with ex-Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten – with the actress claiming she was dumped by text.
Nick, who lives in Andalusia, Spain, also plays rugby and has been a vegan for several years.
Frankie Bridge (née Salford) was born on January 14, 1989.
The 29-year-old grew up in Essex with her mum and dad and older sister Victoria.
Determined to be a performer Frankie attended a private dance school after finishing her schoolwork.
She later studied musical arts at a stage school in Romford.
Frankie was a member of S Club Juniors from 2001 until 2005.
The band released hits like One Step Closer, Automatic High and Puppy Love.
They split in 2004 and Frankie joined The Saturdays in 2007.
The girl band had 13 Top 10 hits and four Top 10 albums before going on hiatus in 2014.
In the same year, Frankie married former England and Chelsea full-back Wayne Bridge.

Made In Chelsea's Georgia Toffolo was crowned the Queen of the Jungle last year.
Georgia, known as Toff, told Ant and Dec in the immediate aftermath of her win: "I don’t know what to say.
"Obviously, I didn’t think anyone would like me, never mind… sorry, I’m really taken aback.
"Thank you so much, I don’t know what to say, I’m really shocked!"
The show was marred with claims that the campmates were bullying Iain Lee who finished third.
Hollyoaks star Jamie Lomas came second.
