Gemma Collins was asked to return to the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle in 2015 - a year after she quit - but she wasn't able to because something came up

Gemma Collins was meant to go back into the 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' jungle the year after she withdrew from the competition in 2014.

The 'Only Way is Essex' star hit the headlines three years ago when she agreed to take part in the creepy-crawly series but refused to parachute into the jungle with her cast mates and then pulled out of the programme after spending 72 hours in the outback.

The 36-year-old blonde babe claimed at the time her exit was due to "health issues" and has now revealed that bosses had asked her to make a return in 2015.

Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Thursday (07.09.17), she said: "Do you know what? I was meant to go back in the jungle the year after I came out but it didn't happen. There's something that went on that not too many people know about - The night before I went in the jungle. But if it came up again, why not?"

However, although she feels brave enough to go back Down Under and sit in the jungle for possibly three weeks, Gemma doesn't think she'd be very good at the trials.

She explained: "I think people think I'm so confident. They probably look at me and think I don't doubt myself but actually I do, so when they said I was going into the jungle, I was so scared because I've been there once, I sort of know what to do again. I would probably be terrible at the challenges."

The next instalment of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' will hit television screens in the autumn time but, as of yet, not much is known about the forthcoming series.
