As we count down to the January 28th premiere date of the 2018 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, Channel Ten have been leaving us juicy clues along the way.

But perhaps the most fascinating hint of all has been the fact two feuding local stars are set to be dropped into the jungle.

“Two feuding celebrities: Two celebrities in the middle of Australia’s biggest feud will be heading into the jungle.”

“This Australian duo are used to clashing in real life, but what will happen when they are forced to live alongside one another in the unpredictable African terrain?” The trailer teased.

And now, a new report by the Daily Telegraph claims the arch enemies are none other than boxing rivals Anthony Mundine and Danny Green.

Danny Green and Anthony Mundine are reportedly entering this season of I’m A Celeb.

The sports star’s beef boasts a robust history and the pair have come face-to-face in the ring twice over the past decade in the most profitable Aussie pay-per-view events ever.

According to the publication Anthony, 42, and Danny, 44, are among the two big stars lined up to appear on the reality TV show, which is filmed in the South African jungle near Kruger National Park.
