I’M A Celeb bosses want EastEnders’ Danny Dyer as their star signing this year as they gear up for a big return to Australia.
The cockney actor, 44, who plays pub landlord Mick Carter, said he was leaving the BBC One soap after nine years.

The ITV juggernaut is set to return Down Under in November after Covid travel restrictions led to two years of filming at chillier Gwrych Castle in North Wales.
A show source said: “Producers think Danny would be great on the series and is their number one target.
“They’re hoping he’ll be finished in time, they’d definitely be up for a big money offer.”
Danny said he was leaving the soap “because sometimes you have to gamble in life as that is what makes it exciting.
“I’m still looking for that defining role.”
