    Beloved BBC star Ben Miller has teased an upcoming appearance on this year’s series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

    The Death In Paradise star sent fans wild when he appeared on Sunday Brunch this weekend (October 22) as he promoted his new children’s book, Once Upon A Legend. He joined fellow actor Javone Prince, comedian Ross Noble, historian Tom Holland and musicians Corinne Baily Ray and the band We Three.

    As the daytime cookery show came to an end, the cheeky double act asked their guests what other projects they had coming up. It was at this point that the Johnny English star revealed that he would be spending the next few months filming in Australia until Christmas.

    The award-winning actor revealed: "I'm packing for Australia, I go to Australia tomorrow until Christmas, so it's a lot of packing. I'm going to Canberra." Tim was quick to poke fun at the dad-of-three's festive activities as he joked that he could be joining the star-studded line-up for the ITV reality show.

    He teased: "Simon, I didn't know they were doing to Jungle in Canberra this year, did you?" The TV chef replied: "No I didn't, I thought they were doing it in Wales. Interesting, I don't know where they do it but it is interesting."

    Luckily, Ben joined in on the joke, adding: "I'm looking forward to those Kangaroo bits." It comes after one This Morning favourite revealed he was asked to join the cast last week as a last-minute addition.

    The new series fronted by the Geordie double act Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly is due to return to our screens this autumn. The gruelling show will see the latest group of celebrities settle into the Australian jungle where they will take on a series of daring challenges for three weeks.

    On Friday's instalment of the ITV show (October 21), Gyles Brandreth revealed he had been asked to join the show several times – including this week. But the broadcaster disappointed viewers when he revealed they won't be seeing him heading Down Under any time soon.

    He confessed: "I was asked again this year. What is interesting is that they obviously had a space at the last minute because I was asked again only this week, so maybe someone dropped out and they were desperate." When asked if he would ever say yes to the opportunity, he admitted: "I'd be terrified. They drop you in by air and you walk along that little bridge… not for me."

    Fans finally got a first look at the upcoming series of the I'm A Celebrity last week when ITV bosses dropped a brand new trailer on Thursday (October 19). Ant and Dec could be seen dressed up as hotel staff, complete with name badges as they advertised a new "jungle retreat".

    The show usually airs at the end of November and it is understood it will run it its usual spot in the schedule.

    Sunday Brunch airs every Sunday on Channel 4 from 9.30am.
