Could Jamie Lynn Spears appear on I’m A Celebrity this year? That’s what has been reported today (November 8).
Yes, the estranged younger sister of pop megastar Britney has been rumoured to enter the jungle later this month. And boy will she have some beans to spill!
If the actress and singer does go on I’m A Celebrity, she’ll be the latest in a long line of American celebrities to try their hand at winning the show. From George Takei to Caitlyn Jenner, here are all of the American stars to have featured over the years.

Actor Antonio Fargas, probably best known for playing Huggy Bear in Starsky & Hutch, was the first American to take part in I’m A Celebrity when he was the fourth campmate to be eliminated in 2004.
On series four, like Antonio, was Sheila Ferguson, a member of the 1970s soul group The Three Degrees. She was the third to be eliminated, leaving the show the day before her fellow American.
Singer Jimmy Osmond – the youngest member of The Osmonds – took part in the fifth season in 2005. He came in fourth place behind Sid Owen, runner-up Sheree Murphy, and winner Carol Thatcher.
The late music producer and TV personality David Gest was a campmate in 2006, on the sixth season of I’m A Celebrity, and he eventually finished fourth behind winner Matt Willis, runner-up Myleene Klass, and Jason Donovan. David famously appeared on Celebrity Big Brother a decade later, being involved in that iconic misunderstanding between Angie Bowie and Tiffany Pollard, before he died in April 2016.
