and live on Freeview channel 276
Jill Scott has revealed that there will be a big I’m a Celebrity reunion at her wedding, despite a rift allegedly forming between campmates.
The new Queen of the Jungle, 35, appeared on BBC‘s The One Show to speak about her incredible career and how much sport means to her, ahead of the release of a new documentary, called ‘Lionesses: When Football Came Home.’
The Retired Lioness announced her engagement to long-term partner Shelly Unitt, 37, in March 2020.
When asked about the pending nuptials, she revealed that they are yet to set a date for the big day, but when they do her I’m A Celebrity campmates will be receiving invitations.
“There’ll definitely be some extra seats at that dinner table, I think,” she said. “I have to invite the campmates, won’t I? I’ll have to!”
Co-host of the show, Lauren Laverne suggested: “George has got to DJ!”, as she referred to the singer Boy George, who also appeared in the jungle, alongside Jill.
The radio host also offered to take the role herself if George declined.
Earlier this month, bride-to-be Jill admitted on Loose Women that she hasn’t been in contact with campmate Matt Hancock since she won I’m a Celebrity.
She said: “‘I haven’t had a message off him yet, that’s the truth.”
Jill went on to confirm that “everybody is still in” the infamous WhatsApp group chat, as she hoped to clear up several rumours about who is included and who isn’t amid reports of a feud.
She said: “I keep getting asked this, everybody’s still in it! But I think, for me, I like being part of a team that everybody gets on, don’t waste energy arguing, just get them stars and that was our main focus. So yeah, everybody’s still in the WhatsApp chat.”
Jill revealed that “lovely” A Place In The Sun star, Scarlette Douglas is the most active on the group chat. Earlier this month Scarlett confirmed the existence of the group and claimed that former health secretary Matt Hancock wasn’t included.
At a movie premiere, Scarlette told PA: “I’m not the admin of that WhatsApp group so if Mike wants to invite him he absolutely can, but it’s not me to put the invitation out so we’ll see what happens.
Jill also spoke of the Women’s Euro win, revealing: “I’ve got the date [the Lionesses won the Euros] tattooed on my arm.”
She continued: “It was a very important day, and it’ll be the best day of 2022 for me. I was just so privileged to be part of an incredible group of players and staff.
“It just seems like it didn’t really happen, because it really was a dream come true,” she added.
After showing her tattoo, she was asked if she would consider getting a memento for her time in the I’m a Celebrity jungle, she confirmed: “No, definitely not. Someone came up to me and asked what meant more, winning the Euros or I’m A Celebrity, and I’m like - come on! I worked so hard for 16 years to win the Euros!”
