Ant McPartlin wants to be a contestant on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
The TV presenter has fronted the ITV reality show for the past 12 years alongside his best pal Declan Donnelly and watched countless celebrities try their luck at the Bushtucker Trials, so thinks he could take on most of the show's grisly challenges.
Ant told the Daily Star newspaper: "I would give the Bushtucker Trials a go, but not the testicles."
However, Dec isn't quite as confident that he would be able to cope in the jungle without the luxury of his home comforts.
He joked: "I would not do 'I'm a Celebrity'. I don't even go camping in this country. I like an en-suite. That is my problem."
The Geordie presenters also revealed they have delayed their 'Takeaway Live Tour' until August so they won't miss any of the World Cup football games this summer.
Dec said: "We have organised our 'Takeaway Live Tour' around the World Cup. We are not stupid."
The dynamic duo are perhaps hoping for some more screen time after they were inundated with messages from friends and family complaining they have been edited out of this year's 'Britain's Got Talent'.
Dec previously said: "I've been away recently but I have been getting a lot of messages on Saturday from friends saying, 'Not seen you much tonight' and 'Where have you both gone?'
"I don't know why really - it's a funny one because we don't control the edit and we film so much content so sometimes you do say, 'I wish they'd used that joke.' "
