Marco Pierre White Jr. is keen to join this year's series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' after cleaning up his act
Marco Pierre White Jr. wants to take part in this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The 21-year-old wild child - the son of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White - stunned viewers last summer with his outrageous behaviour, which saw him cheat on his fiancee and brag about blowing £250,000 on cocaine, when he took part in the civilian series of 'Big Brother'.
But the heavily-inked hunk has finally managed to get his life back on track after moving to his father's farm in Wiltshire and would like to sign up to the jungle show when it returns to TV.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "I definitely want to get back into TV. I've got to choose carefully thought. I turned down 'Ex on the Beach'. I don't want to go off the rails again."
Marco was reportedly approached for 'Ex on the Beach' - also known as 'EOTB' - earlier this year as producers knew he'd provide endless entertainment following his 'BB' stint.
A source said: "Marco's unpredictable nature makes him absolute TV gold. When he was in the 'Big Brother' house his antics shocked the nation - and he was only in there for a week. He could spend an entire month in the 'EOTB' villa, which combined with the sunshine, booze and plenty of hot girls is sure to mean plenty of sexy encounters and huge ratings.
"Producers think that putting him on a show like 'Ex On The Beach' will bring out an even dirtier side of him and make this series the sexiest ever."
Producers were also trying to bag Laura Carter, who Marco romped with on national television on the show last year, for the new series but she's declined in order to focus on her acting.
A representative for Laura said previously: "She was approached for series six, but declined as she's going back into acting and had work commitments to fulfil.
"They asked her in for an initial meeting, but she declined because she didn't want to do reality anymore - but she wouldn't say no to 'Strictly' or 'I'm A Celeb'."
