James 'Arg' Argent wants to star on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The 25-year-old star - who is previously rumoured to have been in talks to appear on the show - is keen to appear on the programme when his time on 'The Only Way is Essex' is up, and admits his latest stint on 'Celebrity Super Spa' has given him confidence to do well on other reality series.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah, I'd love to do 'I'm A Celebrity' one day. I'm a big fan of all different reality shows. 'Celebrity Super Spa' has taken me out of my comfort zone, out of Essex, and it's something completely new to me.
"But I think I've handled it quite well and I've enjoyed it. I think I've stayed the same person.
"So one day I'd love to take up other offers. There are so many other good shows out there.
"I'm confident this show will go down really well and having done this show it makes me feel confident that I can go on and do other good shows."
Should Arg sign up for 'I'm A Celebrity' he will be getting tips from his best friend and former 'TOWIE' co-star Mark Wright - who was runner-up on 'I'm A Celebrity' in 2011 - although he admits the pair rarely meet up due to their busy schedules.
He added: "We are still best friends. Even though Mark is doing really well, believe it or not I've been so, so busy myself.
"Even though we are really busy we still make time to contact each other.
"He's so loved up with Michelle Keegan and he's been busy with work. Michelle is a lovely girl, I'm really happy with them both."
'Celebrity Super Spa' - which centres on six celebrities who work in a spa in Liverpool, where they carry out various treatments, from plucking to pampering, on members of the public - airs on Friday September 14 at 10pm on Channel 5.
