Since Britney Spears' memoir was released last month, the singer's life has been back in the headlines. In her book, The Woman In Me, Britney details her experience of growing up in the spotlight, the breakdown of her relationship with Justin Timberlake, and life under a thirteen year conservatorship, but she also wrote about her fractured relationship with her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears. 

In recent years, Britney has called out her sister on social media - criticising Jamie Lynn for her own 2022 memoir Things I Should Have Said and describing feeling isolated in her own recent tell-all. She writes that Jamie encouraged her to 'stop fighting' the conservatorship, saying: "I didn’t understand how Jamie Lynn and our father had developed such a good relationship. She knew I was reaching out to her for help and that she was dogging me. I felt like she should have taken my side. As I was fighting the conservatorship and receiving a lot of press attention, she was writing a book capitalising on it. She rushed out salacious stories about me, many of them hurtful and outrageous."

Now, it has been rumoured that Jamie Lynn is set to join the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here campmates when the show starts again later this month. The actress, 32, could be heading to the famous Australian jungle with one insider telling The Mirror: "Jamie Lynn has got decades of history and bad blood with Britney to rake over and has laid out her feelings pretty clearly in her own book. It will be interesting to hear her spill the beans about her life and her family and the controversial conservatorship - and to find out whether the sisters really do get along now - or not."

However, speculation over her appearance on the show - which could also star the likes of Nigel Farage and Made In Chelsea's Sam Thompson - has not got down well with Britney's fans who have taken to social media to express their unhappiness. 

One person on X, formerly known as Twitter, wrote: "We need to vote her to do every single trial!!" 

Another added: "I never thought I’d see a parallel between Jamie Lynn Spears and Matt Hancock but here we are, wishing them nothing but bug filled eyeballs."

I'm A Celebrity will air on ITV1 and ITVX  from Sunday 19th November 2023 at 9pm.
