'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Natalie Lowe wants to go on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'

The 34-year-old dancer feels she would be great on the ITV reality show - which shows stars living together in a jungle camp in Australia - because she was raised in the country.

She told BANG Showbiz: "Of course I'd do 'I'm A Celebrity'! I'm Australian."

Although she would be prepared to appear on the programme, the dancing expert - who was paired with 'Bargain Hunt' presenter Tim Wonnacott in the 2014 series - said she would prefer to compete on cooking programme 'Masterchef' because she is into healthy eating.

She said: "Let's do Masterchef, I love food, I love nutrition and I love wellness."

However, Natalie's professional partner Ian Waite - who has released fitness DVD 'Fitsteps' with her - is less keen on appearing on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' as he has so many phobias which are typically tested on the show.

He said: "I couldn't do 'I'm A Celebrity', I don't like heights, I'm very claustrophobic, I don't like insects, I'm very particular about what I eat. I think that would be it for me, that would be my worst nightmare actually."

The 43-year-old dancer also admitted he would love to try out other reality television shows such as doomed gymnastics contest 'Tumble', and ITV singing competition 'X Factor', but confessed he isn't much of a fan of pop music so would want it to have a classical "twist".

He added: "I'd like to try 'Tumble', but the trouble is, we're just too tall for it. I like the concept and the acrobatics, but I think you've got to be quite compact. I'd like to do something like 'X Factor', one for classical singers."

'Fitsteps' is available on DVD now from Universal Pictures (UK). To find a class near you visit
