The boybander is jetting out to Australia to sex up the camp for the new series with bosses hoping his steamy shower scenes will provide eye candy for viewers.
An insider told The Sun: “James is certain to cause excitement with his topless shower scenes and even though he has a girlfriend, producers are still hoping for a jungle romance.”
This year’s show, which starts on November 18, is set to include ex-England manager Harry Redknapp,71, The Chase’s Anne Hegerty, 60, and DIY SOS host Nick Knowles, 56.
The stars of this year’s I’m A Celebrity are in for a horrible surprise when arrive in the camp.
A plague of blood-sucking leeches and enormous earthworms have invaded the set after a number of storms battered Springbrook National Park.
Heavy rainfall expected over the next few days is only going to make conditions in the camp worse and encourage the critters out of hiding.
Bosses are keeping a close eye on the forecast as infestations of leeches in the famous jungle waterfall can play havoc with squeamish celebs.
Joe Swash, who hosts Extra Camp with Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett, previously moaned about the numbers of leeches watching to latch on for a drink.
And Kim Woodburn and Nicola McLean have both endured run-ins with the blood-sucking nasties.

Thunder and lightning is expected to strike during the next few weeks – meaning the celebs heading Down Under won’t be topping up their tans in the sun.
Every year the camp is hit by rain which leaves the stars struggling to keep their belongings dry.
But it’s expected to get worse this year, with torrential rain lashing the area in recent days.
ITV bosses do employ a team of experts to sweep the camp – close to Australia’s Gold Coast – for deadly snakes and spiders.
Last year, deadly funnel web spiders had to be taken away by the show’s expert Dr Bob McCarron, as well as two poisonous Rough Scaled snakes.
Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby will jet out to Australia in the next few days to prepare for the starry arrivals.
And while the celebs are slumming it in sleeping bags, they’ll be enjoying the plush surroundings of a luxurious 5 star hotel.
Stars already confirmed for this year’s show include Nick Knowles and Emily Atack.
The Sun exclusively revealed they would be leading the stars heading Down Under this month.
Former Strictly Come Dancing professional Brendan Cole was also being lined up to join them, along with Fleur East – who’s been in talks for weeks about signing up.
