The Only Way Is Essex cast member - who is rumoured to be leaving the ITV2 programme - is to feature in a new series of the jungle-themed reality competition, according to The Sun.
The paper quotes a friend of Wright as saying: "[The Only Way Is Essex] will always mean a lot to him, but he's become a proper celebrity since being on the show.
"No-one makes any cash on TOWIE and he's nearly done three series now so he's been looking for new opportunities. He wants to spread his wings and do more TV stuff."
An ITV insider has claimed that Wright is already in negotiations for I'm a Celebrity.
Freddie Starr, Benidorm actress Crissy Rock and former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas are among those who have been linked with the latest series of the ITV1 show.
EastEnders bosses recently denied reports that Wright was joining the cast of the BBC One soap.
