Speidi is heading to the jungle, and so is Sanjaya.

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, known affectionately to “Hills” fans as “Speidi,” have signed on to join the cast of “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” a rep for the reality stars confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.

Later in the day, Access Hollywood also learned that former "American Idol" contestant Sanjaya Malakar will also join the show.

The three will travel to the jungles of Costa Rica alongside a host of celebrities of various backgrounds to battle it out for jungle supremacy.

Rod Blagojevich, the impeached Illinois governor, will also be a part of the cast, if a judge approves his proposed international departure.

The former governor was removed from office in January after an arrest on federal corruption charges that included allegations of a plot to sell the state’s empty senate seat following President Barack Obama’s departure from the position.

“I’m A Celebrity…” premieres on NBC on June 1. It will run for four weeks.

The show previously ran for one season on ABC in 2003.

Cris Judd, Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband, beat out the likes of Melissa Rivers, “Stuttering” John Melendez, Tyson Beckford, Bruce Jenner and Robin Leach to score the top prize.

The UK version of the show has featured the likes of Janice Dickinson, “Star Trek” legend George Takei, Sex Pistol John Lydon (Johnny Rotten), Liza Minelli’s ex-husband, David Gest, and E! reality couple Peter Andre and Katie Price (AKA glamour model Jordan), who fell in love while on the show.
