I’m A Celebrity 2019: Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon ‘confirmed’ for ITV show
Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon has reportedly been confirmed for the line-up of this year’s I’m A Celeb. As the launch of the popular ITV show gets nearer, rumours over who will be entering the jungle heighten and this year is no different. There are a number of stars speculated to have signed up but it seems that Lucy has ‘confirmed’ her spot in the jungle.
ITV soap fans will recognise Lucy from playing Bethany Platt in Coronation Street but the star announced she would be leaving the soap earlier in the year.
An ITV source told The Sun: “Lucy is bubbly, funny, down-to-earth and game for a challenge, so she is a great fit for I’m A Celebrity.
“She had conversations last year about taking part but said, ‘Thanks, but no thanks’.
“This year, she told them she feels the timing is right.”

The ITV soap has previously expressed her interest in a stint on the show.
Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: “I think I’d be good at the jungle. I like to challenge myself and that’s the most challenging show you can do.”

The line-up of this year’s campmates will be announced ahead of the series launch later in the year.
Another star who is heavily rumoured to be taking part is Capital FM presenter Roman Kemp.
Earlier in the year Roman appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside his dad Martin Kemp.
