Paddy McGuinness claims he would only appear on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' if he was skint or needed a career boost and insists he would be honest with viewers about it
Paddy McGuinness would only appear on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' if he was "skint".
The 'Take Me Out' host has confessed that although he's a massive fan of the ITV reality series, he would only take part if he needed more money or if his career needed a boost and he also insisted he would be honest with viewers about his reasons for doing it.
He explained: "If you were skint or if you wanted a bit of a career boost, I'd be the first one with a kangaroo's testicle in my mouth.
"I'd never deny it. I wouldn't say, 'I'm here for the journey'. To be honest, I think people would respect you a bit more for it."
The 41-year-old funny man says it's unlikely celebrities would agree to the terrifying challenges hosts Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly [Ant and Dec] task them with in the Australian jungle unless they had something to gain.
He explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I think people see through it. You're not going to be buried in a coffin with six million cockroaches unless you want the money or you want a bit of a boost - there's no other reason to be doing it.
"Sometimes the people that are on it, they go, 'I'm here for the journey and experience'. And I'm like, 'Come on, come on, mate'."
