The former Pussycat Doll, who had been in talks to host the US version of the show, is considering launching a TV career in the UK following her success in the jungle.
Her close friend Bobby Newberry told the Sunday Mirror: "Ashley would love to move to the UK and make a career there, and I think that'll be her next move.
"She would love to do television presenting. She just missed out on a job at The X Factor USA, hosting the show, and I know she was very keen to do that.
"If she got the opportunity to work on the UK show, she would do that in a heartbeat. The UK loves her and they want more of her, so this isn't the end of her on television screens in the UK."
Roberts's ex-Pussycat Dolls bandmate Nicole Scherzinger is currently a judge on The X Factor.
A source added: "Her representatives have been inundated with offers of work and she could become a household name in Britain now she has stepped out of the shadow of Nicole and the rest of the Pussycat Dolls.
"X Factor would be her dream gig, but if she couldn't make it on to the main show, she would be perfect for The Xtra Factor on ITV2."
Roberts impressed the public on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! and finished second behind EastEnders star Charlie Brooks last night (December 1).
