Lioness Jill Scott has signed up for the new series I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
The 35-year-old midfielder was eliminated after beating Germany 2-1 in July’s UEFA women’s final.
But her swear words garnered almost as much attention as her ball skills when a clip of her swearing at Germany’s Sydney Lohmann went viral.
A TV insider said: “Jill became an instant star after that memorable moment, with most Brits forgiving the small outburst.”
“It was always rumored ITV wanted someone from the team in the jungle and Jill is a natural choice.”
Presenting an award at the NTAs this week, Jill joked that she was skinny and had been forced to sell her winner’s medal.
I’m a Celeb returns to the Australian jungle next month.
Other stars include former rugby player Mike Tindall, DJ Chris Moyles and comedian Seann Walsh.
