Robbie Savage wants to take part in the next series of 'I'm A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here!'
The former footballer enjoyed his stint on 'Strictly Come Dancing' so much that he would jump at the chance to take part in another reality TV show and admitted the recent shock suicide of his close friend Gary Speed has spurred him on to live life to the full.
Asked what his plans are for 2012, Robbie said: "The jungle maybe, who knows? What happened to Gary puts life into perspective. I'm going to live every day.
"If you are a milkman, postman, film star - everyone had the same feeling for him as a wonderful guy. It was devastating. Yeah, we move on but you have to live every day as if it's your last."
Robbie, who retired from football in May and has done some radio work, revealed he loves combining being a pundit with taking part in reality TV shows because they all give him "pleasure but for different reasons".
He explained; "They all give me great pleasure but for different reasons.
"It's nice because people come up to you saying nice things about you."
This year's 'I'm A Celebrity . Get Me Out Of Here!' saw McFly bassist Dougie Poynter crowned King of the Jungle when he narrowly beat 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mark Wright.
