I’m A Celeb bosses ‘desperately trying to sign football legend’ for 2020 series

I'm A Celebrity bosses are reportedly desperate to sign football legend Eric Cantona for this year's series.

Manchester United star Eric, 53, would be a dream signing for the hit ITV show as he's known for his outlandish and quirky persona.

Show producer Richard Cowles has said that he reckons the Frenchman would be a great hire for 2020.

He said at an RTS Q&A: "I just like the idea of Eric Cantona talking in French and coming up with really profound things."

Eric is now an actor but first became a favourite with Man United fans in the 90s after impressing with his skills.

However he also got himself into hot water after a kung-fu kick assault on a Crystal Palace fan during a match in 1995 landed him in court.

However Eric won an appeal to be spared jail and said: "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.”

Former EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa was crowned queen of the jungle last year , beating fellow finalists Coronation Street's Andy Whyment and DJ Roman Kemp.

Soap actress Jacqueline was utterly stunned to have been named 2019's champion and was speechless after being handed the crown.

Speaking to Ant and Dec afterwards, she said: "I can't believe I've done all that stuff."

In an emotional moment, she said that she felt the show had been a "turning point" in her life.

"I feel like I've gone in there was one person and come out as a different person," she said. "I feel like I've grown in confidence."
