And now, one of the show’s fan favourites, Jad Nehmetallah, has weighed in on the rumours he might be the one heading into the jungle to join Grant Denyer, Abbie Chatfield and Alli Simpson.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Jad said never say never but his main focus is his current gig on Gogglebox Australia.

“At the moment I’m enjoying myself on the couch with Matty, Sarah and Malik,” he told the publication.

And while many stars fear the creepy crawlies, snakes and stomach-turning Tucker Trials, Jad said he’d be up for facing his fears.

“It would be good entertainment for sure! I am always up for a challenge,” he said.

It’s not the first time Jad has been at the centre of reality TV rumours. Last year, Gogglebox fans lived in hope that Jad would become the next Bachelor.

However, the single 34-year-old, who appears on Gogglebox alongside good friends Sarah Marie and Matty Fahd, later hosed down the speculation.

“It’s insane how many people online and in person have been mentioning it,” he told Lifestyle.com.au.

“I am interested in finding love and starting a family but I’m having way too much fun with Matty and Sarah Marie on the couch on Gogglebox to do anything else.”

The restauranteur and cafe owner is a huge hit with female fans, with many frequently taking to the comments section on his Instagram account to leave flirty remarks.

“I’ve said it many times … you’re absolutely gorgeous,” one fan commented recently on Jad’s Instagram, while another joked, “I think I just got pregnant.”
