Los Angeles - I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here bosses want to "break the bank" to secure Caitlyn Jenner for the next series.

The ITV show are reportedly keen to pay whatever they can to see the 65-year-old former Olympian - who was known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition - take her place in the jungle, following the success of Kellie Maloney's appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kellie did brilliantly on Celebrity Big Brother and we think Cait will be must-see viewing in the Aussie bush. Plus we'd get some Kardashian gossip too.

"We want her. We've broken the bank before to get celebrities such as Janice Dickinson, Martina Navratilova and David Gest. So money won't be a problem."

If Caitlyn does make it into the jungle, she could be joined by the likes of The Only Way Is Essex's Ferne McCann, who recently admitted she would ''love'' to follow in the footsteps of the ITVBe show's Gemma Collins, who appeared in last year's series.

And Red Dwarf star Craig Charles is also thought to be returning to the programme this year, after he exited last series early following a tragic family death.
