Tyson Fury looks set to star in the next series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here after a week in which he pulled out of his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko it was revealed that he tested positive for cocaine. 

The unified WBO and WBA heavyweight champion has gone off the rails sending out tweets claiming he was retired before withdrawing those claims just hours later and stating that he did cocaine because he has "...been going through depression. I just don’t want to live any more".

But now it seems like Fury is set to enter the jungle in a few weeks time as ITV bosses are, according to the Mirror, pulling out all the stops and have put a big money offer on the table to secure him for the show. Despite being mentally unfit to step inside a boxing ring producers are hopeful that the unbeaten fighter will accept their offer and who would turn down the chance to see his antics day in day out in the jungle.

Although this would only heighten public attention it is thought that those amongst Fury's team believe this could be an excellent move for him to take attention away from his recent behaviour.

The Gypsy King's inclusion would add to an already exciting lineup from the sporting world with Olympic gymnast Louis Smith and Robbie Savage already signed up for the series. 

Fury and Farage in the jungle together?

The 16th series of the show is to aired in November and could also include celebrities such as Carol Vorderman and Nigel Farage. 

Fury has bigger worries in the meantime, though, as the British Boxing Board of Control are set to discuss his boxing licence at their regular meeting on October 12 and both the WBO and WBA are to hold talks over potentially stripping him of his world titles. 

The outcome of all three bodies' discussions could see Fury banned from boxing for an extended period of time and stripped of his boxing licence, something that would surely end his career given his disillusionment with the sport as it stands.
