Cliff is well known for playing lovable mechanic Rick 'Minty' Peterson in the BBC soap for eight years.

While he's also starred as Fred Buckle in Call The Midwife since 2012. 

Meanwhile, Andy, who plays Kirk Sutherland in Corrie, has long been heavily tipped to join the show.  

A source told The Mirror: 'With Cliff and Andy we have got too big soap names joining the jungle and they'll be a lot of fun

'Cliff is the final piece in the puzzle and comes from two massive BBC shows. It will be interesting to see if he sees the funny side of things when he has been in there a while and the hunger and tiredness kicks in.'

MailOnline have contacted representatives of I'm A Celebrity for comment, who revealed: 'We'll be confirming our late entries later this week.'

Days ago fans were left baffled as Andy was spotted Christmas shopping in Warrington, just as the other celebrities were landing in Australia for the show.

Rumours: 'Cliff is the final piece in the puzzle and comes from two massive BBC shows. It will be interesting to see if he sees the funny side of things when he has been in there a while and the hunger and tiredness kicks in'

Many were left questioning why he was still in the UK just days before I'm A Celebrity was due to start.

However, it's since been reported that he'll join the show as a late comer, with himself and Cliff completing the line-up as the 11th and 12th contestants. 

This year's I'm A Celebrity camp mates include Caitlyn Jenner, 70; Ian Wright, 56; Jacqueline Jossa, 27; Nadine Coyle, 34; Roman Kemp, 26; Andrew Maxwell, 44; Myles Stephenson, 28; Adele Roberts, 40; Kate Garraway, 52, and James Haskell, 34.

Reality star Caitylin Jenner was reportedly paid a whopping £500,000 to appear in this year's show, making her one of ITV's biggest signings ever. 

A source told The Sun: 'She's such a huge name and a great get for producers.

'ITV think she is one of their best ever signings. It's a real bolt from the blue. They've asked her every year for a long time, but she finally felt the time was right.' 

However, she has certainly proved to be worth the money as fans have already tipped her to be crowned the winner after a successful debut on the ITV show.

Taking to Twitter on Sunday amid the jungle antics, viewers hailed the 70-year-old reality star a 'legend' after she fearlessly jumped out of a plain and didn't flinch when faced with a huge spider.
