The source said with his skills gained in the Army, Harry would be able to turn his hand to many of the tasks in the jungle as ITV attempt to cash in on the BBC show’s success.
It comes after Harry said his career change was motivated by love, during an interview with the British Forces Broadcasting Service radio station on Thursday.
Harry praised his six years in the military for ‘making me the man I am today and helping me win the game’ but said it was time for a ‘new chapter.’
‘I was already looking to start the next chapter of my life before the TV show came about,’ Harry explained. ‘I had done six years in the military, I had already been sent away.’

Harry, who previously revealed how his military background helped him to win The Traitors, said he was quitting for love, declaring: ‘I’m a lover man, I’m a hopeless romantic, it sounds so cringe but it takes that special someone.
‘I never wanted a full career in the army because I wanted to move back home. I was away Monday to Friday and if I get deployed it’s months where I miss birthdays or you make memories with your partner and that just wasn’t for me.’
Harry is happily loved up with his CBBC star girlfriend, Anna, sister of I’m A Celebrity star Jack Maynard and singer Conor Maynard.
‘When I met my girlfriend my decision was I’m going to get what I can,’ he explained, ‘and I am ready to leave now.’
‘Luckily when I was on my supervisors course for work that’s when I got messaged to do the TV show but I had already signed off.’
‘They have been amazing though and hopefully will early release me because I have so many crazy meetings with managements and stuff so who knows what’s next.’
