George Gilbey could be set to star in his own 'An Idiot Abroad' style travel show after his stints on 'Gogglebox' and 'Celebrity Big Brother'
'Gogglebox' star George Gilbey could be set to star in his own travel show.
The cheeky chappy - who recently took part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' - has revealed he's had a number of offers for his own television shows since rising to reality TV fame but admits his favourite idea is to introduce his own fly-on-the wall travel series which would see him indulge in quirky cuisines and take part in local customs.
He said: "I've had lots of offers and ideas since leaving 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
"Top is doing a travel show like Karl Pilkington's 'An Idiot Abroad'.
"It's a dream job for me as I've got the travel bug. Put me in any adverse situation and I attract madness."
George - who is an electrician from Clacton in Essex - gave up his place on 'Gogglebox', in which he was seen critiquing television shows with his mum and dad, to take part in CBB.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "They were very nice about it but they told me that their show is about ordinary people watching telly. It was a risk but I decided to find out what people think of me.
"And as I made the final, I guess people liked what I did."
