‘My kids – Amy and William – were straight on to me saying they would be phoning every night. They were saying, “We’ll make sure you get those maggots, Dad”. Will it happen in the future? Let’s play it by ear.’
‘I’m a Celebrity…’ is a hit ITV show which places a group of celebrities inside an Australian jungle every year, although this year’s edition is being held in a Welsh castle due to coronavirus.
The famous names will be forced to undergo an extensive list of gruesome trials, typically involving critters, with the public able to vote to choose the unlucky person.

Warnock endured his own brush with danger in September after testing positive for Covid-19.
The former Sheffield United and Cardiff coach was restricted to carrying out his duties over Zoom – but has since made a full recovery and returned to the touchline.
Having kept Middlesbrough out of danger last season, Warnock will lead his seventh-placed team out against Norwich this weekend with his sights on loftier targets.
In an exclusive interview with Sportsmail, he admitted: ‘Mid-table doesn’t do it for you when you’re 71. In for a penny, in for a pound. I want to be challenging at the top.’
