David Haye admits eating maggots on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' "wasn't difficult" compared to getting punched in the face for a living

David Haye thought 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' was too easy.

The heavyweight boxer is used to taking punches to the face for a living so insisted chowing down on a few maggots during the ITV reality show's infamous Bushtucker Trials "wasn't difficult" enough for him.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I did enjoy it, it was a good laugh. It wasn't very difficult. I get punched in the face for a living so eating maggots isn't going to bother me."

While David, 33, didn't find 'I'm A Celebrity' very tough, he thought three weeks based in the Australian jungle in 2012 was enough and doesn't expect he will star in any more reality TV shows in the future.

Speaking at the Hilton rooftop bar at London's Wembley to celebrate the transformation of the iconic arch at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, he added: "The celebrity jungle thing was my fill. Three weeks in there was long enough."

What's more, David was full of praise for fellow boxer Audley Harrison, who recently finished second in 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

He said: "I didn't watch Audley in the house because I was out of the country. I missed all of it. I heard he came second and did really well when I got back.

"It's really good to see because he's a nice guy and since the Olympics he hasn't had chance to sit down and talk to people about something that isn't an upcoming fight or why he got beat in a fight.

"But now there was a chance for his true personality to come out. I've known him for many years and he's a cool guy, it's nice that the masses actually got to see that."
