Julie Walters loved sitting down with a cup of tea to watch the latest series of reality TV show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'

Julie Walters is obsessed with 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

The 63-year-old actress always tunes into the ITV show and quipped she loves to watch "broken down" celebrities in the Australian jungle-based programme, but insisted she would never compete on the show "in a million years".

She joked to BANG Showbiz: "I love seeing people broken down, low blood sugar and weeping, having not seen their family for 24 hours."

Asked if she'd like to go into the jungle herself, she laughed and said: "Not in a million years and not for £1 million. I like putting my feet up with a cup of camomile tea and watching it."

The 'Harry Potter' star also enjoyed watching 'Britain's Got Talent' and playing first winner Paul Potts' mother in biopic 'One Chance', which tells the story of the opera star's rise to fame.

She added: "It was lovely, I watched him win on TV and it was a really interesting film. I am selective because I'm 63 now and some things I think, 'I really don't want to do that,' because I like my home life.

"There are less thrusting central parts for women of 63 but I work as much as I want to. I want three months off before I start another film. I don't care how good it is, I've had a busy year as far as I'm concerned.

"I look for a good script and some kind of truth and appeal to my heart, it's got to be interesting, not just a functional part, I can't be bothered to go and do that."
