Kate Humble has no interest in reality TV and questions whether the celebrities who go on these types of shows are really happy
Kate Humble thinks reality TV stars are "sad".
The wildlife television presenter has been asked to appear on numerous reality shows, including 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' several times, but has, and always will, say no because she hates the genre.
Kate exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'm not a celebrity and I don't want to get out of here. I'm not interested in being on television so that people can walk down the street and go, 'Oh, that's the girl from 'I'm A Celebrity...'. I find it very sad that there are people that feel they are earning their place in the world for doing something very shocking that will make all the headlines. What do they think it's going to give them? Are they really happy?"
Kate - who has been living in Mongolia for hew new series 'Living with Nomads' - insists fame is just a by-product of her making programmes she feels passionate about and it is something she'll never embrace or pursue.
The 45-year-old star - who is leading the 2014 Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project (Barefootwine.co.uk), a campaign to keep Britain's beaches barefoot-friendly this summer - explained: "I don't go to parties with my t**s hanging out, chasing after footballers in an inappropriate dress. There are so many other things that will make you happier than appearing on the front of a magazine, which is going to end up wrapped around someone's fish and chips."
As well as working on 'Living with Nomads', Kate is writing a book about humans' special bond with dogs and she admits she loves the diversity her career affords her.
Kate - who is married to television producer Ludo Graham - said: "I'm writing a book about the 30,000-year relationship between humans and dogs. I find it amazing that dogs have become so adaptable and such a big part of our lives. I'm writing the book now and it will be out in 2016."
