Caitlyn Jenner made a stir in the jungle during the 2019 edition of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! alongside Roman Kemp and Kate Garraway, placing sixth overall. Many viewers were expecting the Olympic decathlon gold medalist to return to ITV for this year’s All Stars series filmed in South Africa, but sadly she wasn’t among the first batch of celebs confirmed this week.
Jenner was reportedly unable to return for I’m A Celeb: All Stars due to a scheduling clash.
Sources have confirmed she was offered to take part but had to turn down the opportunity.
After the first line-up for I’m a Celeb South Africa was revealed on Saturday, they claimed ITV bosses had approached Jenner for a second stint in the jungle.
“They reached out and her schedule didn’t allow for it,” the source told the Mirror.
The Olympic athlete was apparently the highest paid star to appear on the series at the time, with a staggering £500,000 pay cheque.
She has opened up about bonding with her famous co-stars during her time in the jungle, which included Ian Wright, Nadine Coyle and the series’ winner, Jacqueline Jossa.
“It’s a tremendous bond, what we went through, you never forget that,” she told the Daily Star.
“I’m A Celebrity is about the people, it’s not about where they’re at. You’re in the jungle, it’s not easy but the show is about the people.”
“Isolated from the world, forced to deal with themselves.”
Fans may still be hoping for an appearance from Jenner, however, as more celebrities will be introduced as the season goes on.
Also on board, for I’m A Celeb: All Stars are Helen Flanagan, Phil Tufnell, Paul Burrell, Jordan Banjo, Amir Khan, Janice Dickinson and Fatima Whitbread.
They’ll be heading to Kruger National Park in South Africa later this year to endure the harsh wilderness and plenty of Bushtucker trials.

The series was first confirmed by presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly in an exciting announcement on Twitter last September.
“South Africaaaa! That’s right, we’re filming a very special version of I’m A Celebrity in South Africa, which is coming to your tellies in 2023,” they both shared.
Dec went on: “We’ve got news. It’s probably the worst kept secret in television, but we can confirm we’re doing a very special series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in South Africa!
“We’re here, it’s going to be your favourite celebrities from the last 20 years who are going back in to do it one more time.”
An ITV spokeswoman said: “They survived the Australian jungle, but South Africa is an even harder proposition which will push them to their limits and test them like never before.
“The challenges are bigger and tougher and the environment harsher and more unforgiving.”
Amir Khan said: “I’m determined this time not to be soft when it comes to the trials!”
Helen Flanagan added: “I will be scared but I will have a go and I will be a lot better than last time!”
I’m A Celebrity All Stars starts in April on ITV1 and ITVX.
