5ive's Scott Robinson and Ritchie Neville have admitted they would love to go in the jungle and face their fears on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'

5ive's Ritchie Neville and Scott Robinson want to appear on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

The two singers are both fans of the gruelling reality TV show and although they know it would be a challenging experience the twosome think they could handle the jungle.

However, 35-year-old Scott could struggle with the eating Bushtucker Trials because they are so many regular meals he can't stand to eat let alone witchetty grubs, mealworms and blended bull's penis.

When the group - also comprised of Sean Conlon - were asked what reality show they'd be up for, Ritchie, 35, exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd love to do 'I'm a Celeb...' out of all of them."

Scott added: "The reason that I want to do it is that I think it would be quite funny with the food, because I don't even like salad, it scares me!

"Even if someone won the 10 stars, like, everyone else would be like, 'Oh wow we've got this for dinner tonight.' I'd be like, 'Ergh.' That would be a trial in itself. Watching me eat a kangaroo or a bird, I'd be like, 'Oh I can't eat that."

Ritchie and Sean both have little faith in Scott's ability to make it through to the final.

Ritchie joked: "The salad is like a kangaroo's testicle to your eye. You'd actually get ill because you don't even eat rice."

Sean quipped: "You'd just get sent straight home because you wouldn't eat anything."
