EastEnders star Danielle Harold is reportedly being lined up to take part in this year’s series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The acclaimed actress, who played Lola Pearce, is said to have ‘caught the eye’ of the ITV bosses, following the string of awards she’s won for her work on the BBC One soap.

Danielle, as viewers know, was written out of EastEnders earlier this year after her character Lola died from a terminal brain tumour, a storyline which has received critical acclaim.

For her work on the story, the soap star went on to pick up the award for Best Leading Performer at The British Soap Awards, before scooping the Serial Drama Performance gong at the National Television Awards.

Both trophies were viewer voted.

‘Danielle is at the height of her career and in demand after her moving storyline on EastEnders, but she’s really caught the eye of ITV bosses to appear in the upcoming series of the jungle,’ a source told The Sun.

‘As well as being a talented actress with a huge fanbase, Danielle has a fun personality with a wicked sense of humour, which makes her the ideal campmate for the show.

‘It could propel her into superstardom at an exciting time in her acting journey.’
