    Sam Thompson is tipped to land more TV roles in 2024 as bosses look to cash in on his Jungle popularity after he won ITV's I'm Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here.

    ITV bosses are understood to already be looking at big new TV projects with him and other channels are also circling, eager to have the likeable 31-year-old on screen. A TV source said: “After lots of reality show appearances, Sam can now choose his next TV moves.

    “The show has been a huge boost for him, winning him fans and in the future some new TV deals and promotional gigs, it’s win win.” To make things even better for Sam, he has multiple possibilities on screen thanks to his friends and family.

    One option would be doing travel, road trip type shows with best pal Pete Wicks who he already makes a successful podcast with. He could also look to film more serious docs alongside girlfriend Zara McDermott who makes shows with BBC and has also hit primetime on strictly -come-dancing>Strictly Come Dancing.

    He has already explored his ADHD in an E4 documentary but there could be scope for a follow up. The source added: “Sam and Pete are an established duo with the podcast and Sam has his Hits Radio show too.

    “But the option of working with Zara is another new angle and with the both having had big primetime TV appearances, there will definitely be lots of requests for them to work together and make shows about their relationship if they want to let the cameras in.”

    Ahead of last night’s final, Sam’s girlfriend Zara was thrilled with how the public had backed her partner. She said: “I am just so so so so so so so so proud beyond words at this point, I’m truly speechless and lost for words at all of your support for Sam. It means the absolute world to us.”

    His jungle adventure has seen him take on a host of trials including 007 themed No Time To Cry and entering the show having showed a head for heights in the Pole Position trial over 100 metres up on top of a building.

    He also had a leech on his bum when he was camp leader and security had to remove a poisonous snake closeby to his bed as he slept.

    But nothing could stop Sam from loving jungle life and even when he burned the rice or the rain poured he remains happy and singing, laughing and joking around.
