The former 'EastEnders' star - who won the show back in 2008 - is being lined up alongside the likes of Vicky Pattison, Charlie Brooks and Joey Essex to make a surprise appearance on the show.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Joe was one of the show’s most popular winners.

"He absolutely walked his year, bagging nearly 70 per cent of the final vote over Martina [Navratilova] and George [Takei].

"When they were looking at those to invite back, he seemed a no-brainer."

However, at the moment, it's not clear how he'll be involved with the ITV show.

The insider added: "Just as with Vicky, Joey and Charlie, exactly what Joe will be doing in North Wales still remains to be seen.

"All sorts of things have been discussed and he’s game for anything. He knows the show inside out so who better to have on board. He is buzzing."

Speculation about Joe's return follows confirmation that Russell Watson and Ruthie Henshall are to join 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here'.

The classical singer and the West End star will be introduced to the 10 current campmates during the Stage Fright trial.

Russell said: "I am excited about going on this show especially as I have spent most of the year not doing what I normally would do!

"If I am being honest, I thought it would be really difficult. I wasn’t sure how I would be not being on the stage for such a long period of time, but I have actually enjoyed some of the aspects of it – riding my bike, playing the guitar and seeing my family more. Now I am looking forward to making some new friends on 'I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here'."
