Lisa Appleton really wants to do 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' but bosses aren't keen on her
Lisa Appleton is desperate to do 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' - but bosses have snubbed her because they don't think she's "high profile enough" for the show.
The 49-year-old reality TV star has reportedly reached out to producers of the creepy-crawly series as she's keen to head Down Under later this year and compete for the jungle crown, but the organisers are adamant she'd never make the cut.
A source told The Sun Online:"Only a few people knew that Lisa had been in touch with the 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' team. They were interested, but in the end they said they weren't going to offer her a spot this time."
However, an insider close to the show added: "I'm sure she's [Lisa] a lovely lady, but she's just not high profile enough for the show."
The former 'Big Brother' star is currently in Los Angeles in a bid to carve out a career across the pond after she recently underwent a dramatic makeover.
The brunette babe reportedly splashed out £7,000 on her appearance - including liposuction, having fat removed from her eyelids and a face and neck lift.
She said recently: "I look 20 years younger now! I look like a sexy Bond Girl and I could definitely give Sophie Anderton a run for her money! I've been feeling like a mummy walking around in bandages for the past few weeks.
"I knew surgery was something I wanted to do to help me feel better. I started looking at photos of myself and I didn't like what I saw. I had a big belly and three chins. I'd always been fit and healthy and I wanted the old me back."
