REP: Daniel Baldwin Not Replacing Speidi…For Now

It doesn’t look like hell-raiser Daniel Baldwin is about to replace Heidi and Spencer Pratt on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here. Various outlets had reported Tuesday that Daniel, 48, was about to join his younger brother Stephen Baldwin, 43, on the Costa Rican island but his rep told RadarOnline.com that the story isn’t true.

His publicist John McGaillard told RadarOnline.com that the swap was “news to him” and that his client was still in California attending business meetings.

The brothers have a notorious ‘love-hate’ relationship and sparks would most certainly fly if the pair hooked-up on the show. Daniel – whose other brothers are actors Alec and Billy Baldwin – is trying to get his career back-on-track after several drug busts in recent times. But with his wife Joanne about to give birth to their second child later this summer the timing may not be right.

Although NBC are remaining tight-lipped about Heidi and Spencer’s departure they are understood to be scrambling around to find replacements. It’s understood that they have reached out to several members from The Hills to see if they will step in to replace the husband and wife who went AWOL after only one episode of the jungle reality show.
