Laila Morse heading to the jungle?

EastEnders star Laila Morse is apparently swapping Walford for the Australian jungle after signing up to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The 68-year-old actress sister of Gary Oldman - famous for playing Albert Square's Big Mo - was declared bankrupt in August and according to The Sun has signed a £60,000 to take part in the ITV reality show.

Laila - who has previously competed in Dancing On Ice - makes guest appearances in Albert Square after her regular contract with the BBC reportedly ended last year.

She will now have to face all kinds of creepy crawlies and terrible tortures for the celebrity reality show.

Other stars rumoured to be heading Down Under for the show include Westlife's Kian Egan, Paul Gascoigne, former Apprentice contestant Stella English and Coronation Street's Michael Le Vell.

Snooker player Steve Davis, TOWIE's Joey Essex and Rylan Clark are also heavily tipped to be taking part.
