Sinitta dated Simon Cowell

Sinitta has been tipped to appear on this year's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

The So Macho singer has signed a £30,000 deal after her former boyfriend Simon Cowell, 52, reportedly put in a good word with producers.

'She loves being on TV and she should be good value and a bit of a mother figure,' says an insider.

'She knows all of Simon's secrets so producers will be hoping she lets some slip.'

Sinitta, 42, is hoping to fly home before The X Factor live final to support pal Louis Walsh, 59, who she helped out at judges' houses.

'I'm A Celebrity ends the week before The X Factor final,' the source tells The Sun.

'She should still make it back in time for it.'
