Ben Cohen turned down taking part in the jungle in 2013, he instead headed to star in Strictly Come Dancing.

Now Ben has been rumoured to enter the jungle this year, this is after an offer from bosses of a ‘hefty paycheque’ following his legal divorce battle, say reports.

Ben hit the headlines after he competed in BBC’s Strictly and split from his wife Abby.

The pair divorced last year, and Ben is now dating his professional dance partner Kristina Rihanoff – he now has a baby daughter.

According to The Sun, Ben who turned down the jungle could be entering this year to ‘top up his bank balance’.

A source told the paper: “Ben’s name was straight on the list for this year,

“He is popular with viewers, as his Strictly stint showed, and appeals to sports fans.

“He’s also a gay icon so he ticks a lot of boxes. It looks like the producers might get their man.”
