Close your eyes and imagine this for a few seconds.
Former England manager Sam Allardyce is being lined up for I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!
ITV bosses are said to have offered Big Sam a six-figure fee.
A source close to Allardyce told the Sun: “This is not one of those rumours. They have been in touch several times to try to get him to sign on the dotted line.
“They are absolutely sure he would be a fantastic character to have in the jungle. He would be terrific, as you can imagine.
“His family are fully aware of the situation but it’s down to Sam at the end of the day and he most definitely hasn’t ruled anything out. He loves a challenge, loves a laugh and good company so joining the 17th series ticks all the boxes.
“He’s not fazed by anything and can handle any problems thrown at him by people he doesn’t get on with so all in all it seems to perfect TV show for him.”
The 62-year-old gaffer was sacked as England manager in 2016 after just one game in charge.
He was forced to quit after Daily Telegraph reporters posing as businessmen filmed him, allegedly offering to give advice on how to get around transfer rules and negotiating a £400,000 deal, subject to FA approval.
An ITV spokesman said they would reveal the names for this year’s show in November.
Which is surely around the time Crystal Palace will be lining Big Sam up as a replacement for Roy Hodgson.
