Spencer Matthews wants to return for "another shot" at 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
The 27-year-old reality TV star was forced to leave the show after just a few days following his admission to producers that he had been taking steroids but Spencer hopes to compete in the ITV show in the future.
In a statement explaining why he left, Spencer added: "Hoping for another shot at it someday."
Fans were shocked when Spencer revealed the reason for his departure from the show.
He said: "Shortly after I arrived in Australia I told the production team that I was taking a steroid-based medication that had begun some weeks ago. When I started taking this programme of pills it was in preparation for a charity boxing match which, ironically, never took place. Vanity, I suppose, had been the reason for wanting to bulk up a bit for the fight.
"I had intended to come off the pills gradually, but there was no time to do this before I reached the jungle.
"My admission to the production team that I was still taking these pills led to the conclusion that it would be unsafe for me to stay in the jungle - a decision which I found extremely hard to stomach. I pushed back but ultimately the show's duty of care prevailed and bags had to be packed. Taking these pills was a serious error of judgment, which I hugely regret."
