Lacey Turner wants to do 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'
The 29-year-old actress, who plays Stacey Fowler on the popular BBC soap 'EastEnders', has been approached by bosses of 'Strictly Come Dancing' in the past but has turned it down because she'd rather sign up to the creepy-crawly show.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, she said: "I have been asked to go on 'Strictly' but I'm rubbish at dancing and I don't really have the guts. I'd do it if it wasn't on telly. I do think it's a great show to do, though, as you learn a new skill. Maybe one day, I'll grow a pair and put the shoes on.
"I'd like to do 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' but it's just too far away from home and I'd be so hungry."
The BBC dancing competition has seen a number of former and current 'EastEnders' stars taking part over the years but the forthcoming series will be extra special as Davood Ghadami - who plays handsome Kush Kazemi - has signed up.
Although scared to go on herself, Lacey said she is excited for Davood to take part.
She said: "I'm so excited for Dav. I think he's going to be amazing. It's a great thing for him to do and he'll love the experience.
"Kellie Bright and Jake Wood, and also Matt Di Angelo told me it was such hard work, especially when you're working on 'EastEnders'."
The actress also said she would never go on 'Celebrity Big Brother' unlike former 'EastEnders' star Shaun Williamson, and Lacey said he was "brave" for doing it.
She said: "I wasn't there when he was on the show so I don't know him, but I think he's a brave man. I couldn't go on 'Celebrity Big Brother'. I have terrible OCD so I'd be cleaning all the time - I'd be that boring I'd be out in the first week."
