The actress, who plays Bethany Platt on the ITV soap, told the Daily Star that she thinks the reality show would be an interesting “challenge”.
“I think I’d be good at the jungle,” she said.
“I like to challenge myself, and that’s the most challenging show you can do.”
It’s not the first time Lucy has openly said that she is keen to be challenged, either. Last month, she shared her hope that Bethany continues to be involved in darker storylines.
“Everyone expects me to say that I want her to have happy storylines but I don’t,” she said, “because the happy storylines aren’t as challenging to play”.
Former Coronation Street actor Shayne Ward has recently been rumoured to be lined up for this year’s series of I’m a Celebrity.
Commenting on the speculation, Kym Marsh said: “He’d definitely be entertaining if he was to head into the jungle.
“Shayne would be fun and a good sport and he’d probably sing the entire time, as that’s what he used to do all day at work!”
