Shona McGarty wants to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'
The 'EastEnders' actress - who plays troubled teen Whitney Dean in the BBC One soap - admitted she was always "a tomboy" at school, and would definitely be up for the gruesome challenges the jungle-based reality show offers.
She said: "I'd be up for 'I'm A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here!' I've always been a bit of a tomboy. When I was at primary school, I used to put worms on my tongue and show off. And I used to let snails crawl up my belly."
However, the 19-year-old star would only be prepared to go on 'Strictly Come Dancing' if TV bosses developed a street dance version of the series.
She added: "I'd only do 'Strictly' if they did 'Strictly Come Street Dance'."
Meanwhile, Shona confessed she can't stand her 'EastEnders' alter-ego's chav-tastic wardrobe.
She told Reveal magazine: "I don't like Whitney's clothes. Her worst two item are a blue hat she wore at the beginning, which has now mysteriously disappeared. And there's also a pink-lilac fluffy jacket that comes out every now and again. Her outfits always clash."
