MailOnline has contacted ITV for comment.
A source told The Sun: ‘There’s a long tradition of reality TV shows targeting news presenters and I’m A Celebrity is no different.
‘Victoria Derbyshire was on the show before and proved very popular with viewers. ITV are hoping they can do the same with Louise and have approached her about coming on board.’

The upcoming series will be filmed once again at North Wales’ Gwrych Castle after ITV bosses ruled out a return to Australia due to travel restrictions on the country’s east coast, currently in the midst of another lockdown.
The source also claimed that ITV have got a ‘decent offer’ to put to Louise, with the hope she’ll be able to take a few weeks’ break on the lead up to the new series which is expected to start in November.
If the journalist takes ITV up on their offer, it could see her go head-to-head on rival channels with former BBC co-presenter Dan Walker, who is appearing on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The rumoured approach comes after work continued in earnest on Monday as builders prepared Gwrych Castle and its adjacent 236 acre estate ahead of the new series.
