Tyson Fury has stoked speculation he could be set for I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here after pulling out of his rematch with boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

The controversial heavyweight boxer has made a number of increasingly erratic statements in recent weeks after allegedly testing positive for cocaine.

On Thursday, Fury’s official Twitter account shared an article claiming he was being lined up for the reality TV show set in the Australian jungle which is due to start in November. 

On Monday, Fury announced his retirement on Twitter, only to retract it hours later. He later tweeted that he was “getting the right help”.

“I’ll be back even stronger than before, try and stop me," he wrote. 

“Soon as I get better I'll be defending what's mine, the heavyweight thrown [sic].”

A spokesperson for ITV told The Independent: “Any names suggested for I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here at this stage are just pure speculation.”

Robert Smith, the General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control will meet on 12 October to “discuss all of Mr Fury's recent issues”.
