Pamela Anderson ‘in final negotiations’ for I’m A Celebrity Australia

Pamela Anderson is reportedly in ‘final negotiations’ to appear on the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia.

On Wednesday, Who magazine claimed that Channel 10 bosses had gone to ‘great lengths’ to secure the A-list star.

‘Getting Pamela on the show is like winning the lottery for the network,’ a source told the publication.

The insider added: ‘They expect her appearance will not only attract more viewers but generate world-wide headlines as she’ll no doubt have some stories to tell.’

According to Who, Pamela, 51, is ‘supposed to’ arrive in the jungle on Sunday, during the first episode of the new series.

However, the publication claim bosses fear she may ‘leave them high and dry’ as her appearance is not yet confirmed.

‘The network are trying their best to meet her demands because they don’t have any other international star lined up yet,’ the insider concluded.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 and Pamela’s rep for comment.

Pamela’s potential appearance follows a string of reports that the show has ‘struggled’ to sign up big names, after a ratings decline in recent years.

Gogglebox’s Angie Jones, 28, and Yvie Kent, 46, are the only confirmed campmates so far, ahead of Sunday’s launch.

Pamela Anderson pushes for VEGAN meals to be served to Australian female prison inmates – to make them less violent

She’s the former Baywatch star who is a passionate animal rights activist.

And Pamela Anderson wants female felons in New South Wales to adopt a more karmic diet as they serve out their sentences.

The 50-year-old has written a letter, in her role as honorary director of PETA, to the NSW Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin to urge vegan meals be served in a bid to curb violence.

Pamela wrote that she was spurred into action after reading about a plan to offer yoga, tai chi and meditation to female inmates across the state.

‘I read about your plan to rehabilitate female inmates through mindfulness exercises and yoga and wanted to make a suggestion that could further help embrace nonviolence, switching to nutritious vegan meals in your correctional facilities,’ Pamela wrote.

She went on to argue that switching to a vegan diet would also have many healthcare benefits for the state.

‘Not only would providing vegan food honour one of the driving principles of yoga – ahimsa (doing no harm) – by sparing animals lives, it could also help improve the health of the women in your facilities while decreasing long-term healthcare costs,’ she added.

Using the case study of Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail, which switched to a meat free diet in 2015, Pamela wrote that she had witnessed first-hand the popularity of the program, as well as its economic benefits.

‘Maricopa County Jail switched to all-vegetarian food for its 8,000 inmates and reported a saving of US$273,000,’ she revealed.

‘In 2015, I went there with representatives of PETA US to serve lunch to the prisoners, who were impressed with the freshness and quality of the food.’

Daily Mail Australia has approached NSW Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin for comment.

Pamela has long been a staunch animal rights activist.

In 1999, she received PETA’s inaugural Linda McCartney Memorial Award for campaigning against the use of fur.

She has also stirred up controversy by stripping down on numerous occasions for the organisation’s ‘I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur’ campaign.
