Married TV star Matthew Wright has joked he will have an affair while competing on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
Matthew Wright has joked he will have an affair on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The TV presenter - who married second wife Amelia Gatte in 2010 - jetted into Australia for the show yesterday (12.11.13), and laughingly hinted he wanted to get close to a female campmate, before admitting he was already finding being away from his wife difficult.
He said: "Before I left the UK, I said to my wife, 'Surely every married couple is allowed one affair?'
"I won't tell you what she said, though. It didn't go down too well.
"To be honest, I don't even look at anyone else these days. My wife is a hottie.
"Without a doubt, I am going to miss my wife the most in the jungle. In fact, I hadn't even got to Singapore and I was missing her already. It's tempting to turn around and fly back."
The 'Wright Stuff' star also claimed to have been restricting his food intake so he could cope with jungle rations.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I've been on a diet for the last couple of months, so now I can't wait to eat kangaroo anus. I've heard so much about it."
Oympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington also arrived in Australia for the show yesterday, while 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' actor Alfonso Ribeiro and Miss Great Britain Amy Willerton are expected to fly in today (13.11.13).
