Amanda Holden has revealed what it would take to get her to take part in I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.

The 49-year-old is no stranger to reality shows, though she is more familiar with the judging side of things rather than taking part as a contestant.

But she has revealed if she is planning on taking the plunge anytime soon, it spells bad news for fans of usual show presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

Holden told The Sun: “If Ant and Dec announced it would be their last ever series, then I think they’d get to choose who is in it, and we’d all have to do it.

“But I can’t see their show ever ending, so I’m safe. But it’s my favourite reality show to watch.”

The show is known for its outrageous and often dangerous (and disgusting) bushtucker trials which famously include participants eating a host of bugs, creepy-crawlies and animal genitals - but this is something Holden does not envisage being a problem.

She added: “I would rise to the challenges. I’d be a screamer - but there’s ­nothing I wouldn’t put in my mouth, babe.”

She sounds like the perfect candidate.

It is not the first time Britain’s Got Talent star has been linked to the series after it was rumoured she considered joining the 2019 series.

It is thought show producers would love to entice Holden to take part. She would almost certainly be a big draw for viewers due to her status as a prime time telly favourite.

BGT returns to screens this weekend and Holden’s fellow judge Alesha Dixon said the show will offer “escapism” for viewers in lockdown as the current coronavirus crisis continues.

Speaking on This Morning, she told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “Silliness is what we need.”

The fourteenth series of the talent show returns on ITV tonight (11 April) at 8pm.
