Jessica Wright would "love" to return to reality television and compete in 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!' following her departure from 'The Only Way is Essex'
Jessica Wright would "love" to compete on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star - who quit the show last year after a six-year run on the hit series - has admitted she wants to try her hand at the nail-biting bush tucker trials in order to show fans her true personality.
Speaking to The Daily Star Online about stealing the crown from last year's winner Vicky Pattison, which saw her former co-star Ferne McCann take third place after eating a live spider, the 30-year-old beauty said: "I love reality TV, I feel 'Big Brother' or 'I'm a Celeb' would really give me the opportunity to show off the real Jess.
"'TOWIE' was great but it was edited down."
Although Jessica is keen to follow in her younger brother Mark's footsteps - who came second in season 11 of the ITV show hosted by comedy duo Ant and Dec - she has revealed she is scared of removing spiders from her flat in Essex, and would be "terrified" of the copious amount of creepy crawlies in the Australian outback.
She explained: "I would be terrified of bugs in the jungle but I'd never let my team down. The way I would react to it would be an actual joke. There was a spider in my flat and it really freaked me out, it took me an hour to get rid of it. I love a challenge though so I'd battle through it."
However, the businesswoman - who has her own fashion line With Love Jessica and recently launched her shoe collection Jessica Wright Footwear - has admitted she would not be fazed stripping down to a skimpy two-piece to flaunt her assets in the open shower on the show.
She said: "I wouldn't be worried about the shower at all.
"You've just got to work it. You've just got to get your best assets out."
