I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! star Rebecca Adlington has announced she is expecting her third child.

The former Olympian, who competed in the 13th series of the ITV reality show, announced via Instagram that she was expecting another baby, her second with husband Andrew Parsons.

“Our own bit of magic. Baby number 3 on the way #pregnancy #disneylandparis #3 @adam_bealeyboy,” she wrote in the caption, accompanying a photo of the family in front of the iconic castle at Disneyland Paris.

Adlington, who has also appeared in Celebrity MasterChef and The Jump, gave birth to a daughter in 2015 with ex-husband Harry Needs, before welcoming a son with Parsons in 2021.

Adlington finished sixth when appearing in the jungle, with the most recent series taking place in South Africa for an All-Stars edition.

Prior to that, former professional footballer Jill Scott took home the crown in the last main series, and recently revealed a former teammate could join the show.

“Beth England wants to do it. She really wants to do it. She would be good. I also think Georgia Stanway would be good in there – she would give her all. I’m putting those two forward,” she revealed, before speaking about her own time in the jungle.

“I never thought I’d be equipped to live in a jungle. But tapping into that sports mentality... I remember getting in there and I counted 11 of us. I was like, right, this is a team of 11, where have you heard that before?

“This is my team, look after them. Our aim is not to get a medal, it’s to get food. If you can help in any way, do. Work hard, do the right things — that’s what sport teaches you,” she added.

I'm a Celebrity… is tipped to return later this year on ITV1 and ITVX.
