Kerry Katona reveals why she turned down appearing on I’m a Celeb All Star

She’s not even watching it.

Former I’m a Celebrity star Kerry Katona revealed why she turned down the opportunity to return to the jungle.

The I’m A Celebrity South Africa All Star series began on Monday April 24th and welcomed many familiar faces including Janice Dickinson, Joe Swash and Helen Flanagan.

Katona won the third series of the ITV show back in 2004 but didn’t fancy returning or even watching the series at all.

The star shared her thoughts on the show in her recent column written for The Sun’s New!

She wrote: “I’m not watching I’m A Celebrity… South Africa because I’m too busy to watch any telly at the minute.

“ITV asked me to be in it. I was already committed to another TV show, but also, I don’t think the experience is something that can be re-lived.”

Amir Khan was evicted from the jungle on Tuesday night and has since admitted that he didn’t know many of his campmates names.

He said: “To be honest with you, I didn’t really know anyone in camp when I entered. I’m really bad.

“The only people I knew in there were [Georgia] ‘Toff’ [Toffolo] and Carol Vorderman.

“I’m also really bad with names, I always get names wrong but people made that a bit of a joke and had a laugh about it.

“Luckily, they all had their names on the back of their T-shirts so sometimes I’d have a little peek at their backs as I couldn’t remember their names.”

Amir was the third celebrity to be kicked out of the jungle.

He followed Shaun Ryder and Gillian McKeith who were turfed out in a double elimination last week.
