Nigel Farage has suggested he is 'open' to appearing on I'm A Celebrity! Get Me Out Of Here in a future series.
The pro-Brexit politician told This Morning that ITV bosses had considered the MEP for the line-up in the past but that he was too "busy" to do it.
But asked if he'd consider the show now he said: "I don't know" before saying he hadn't been tempted before "because the Brexit thing wasn't done yet".
He accepted if he did appear on the programme he would most likely be forced to do most of the infamous Bushtucker trials.
"I'd be on every bloomin' trial there is ... the problem with having an opinion is, while some people love you, a lot don't."
