Carl Fogarty thinks he's too laid back for a career in showbusiness and can't see himself continuing to appear on TV following his success on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!'

Carl Fogarty is too "laid back" for show business.

The former World Superbike champion - who was crowned winner of 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' earlier this month - has confessed he can't see himself staying in the limelight.

Confessing he's "too northern" and "too laid" back, he said: "I can't see that happening ... It's hard to imagine me staying it TV and doing stuff but you never know. Never say never."

The 49-year-old star - from Blackburn in Yorkshire - admitted he could retire now if he wanted to but revealed he could be persuaded to move to the United States if the right offer came along.

Quizzed on whether he'd consider working in Hollywood, he shared: "Yeah, absolutely. I'm in a position where I can look at things now and if I quite like the sound of something or fancy something different then I can do that.

"I don't need to - financially I'm fine and I'm busy with the racing and endorsements. It's nice to have something else to get my teeth stuck into if it really appeals to me."

Carl also opened up about his time on the ITV reality series and insisted that while he plans to keep in touch with former Conservative MP Edwina Currie, he had to tune out of some of her conversations in the camp.

Speaking at the British Comedy Awards, he added: "I like listening to what she's got to say. Apart from when she goes on about her sexual toys and things like that, and then I found it very uncomfortable."
