Carson back in 'I'm A Celeb' lineup
The Irish stand-up, 77, was dropped from the show last week because he has a heart pacemaker, meaning that insurance costs were too high.
Now the problems have apparently been resolved and Carson will be joining nine other celebrities in the Australian jungle on January 26.
“There was a problem with insurance," Carson's wife Ruth told the newspaper. “Frank had to get a doctor’s note and have lots of tests but he is fighting fit and raring to go. Since he had the pacemaker fitted it’s added 10 years to his life. He’s very fit. He definitely thinks he can win.”
ITV is expected to officially confirm the names in the group later this week.
