If you were hoping to ever see This Morning's Phillip Schofield head Down Under for a stint in the jungle, then we have bad news for you.

While the presenter would be high on our (and probably television bosses') wish lists, his refusal to do it does have a specific reason – namely, he cannot stand the scraping of metal pans with metal.

On This Morning earlier today (November 14), presenter Alison Hammond joked that Phillip could be a wild card on this year's series.

However, he revealed his kryptonite of "scraping billy cans", saying: "I can't do metal on metal."

But Alison had a surprise for him and she took out her own billycan from her stint on I'm A Celebrity to prove the presenter's point, and had Phillip exclaiming: "No don't do that!"

Holly Willoughby then proceeded to scrape the can herself, prompting Phillip to cover his ears as he asked: "Why would you do that?"

Despite vowing to get his own back on her, it gave Holly some leverage of her own after Phillip had tried to get her to join him in trying the world's hottest chilli on the show – he even set up an online poll in which a large majority were in favour of her trying it.

She luckily managed to get out of it in the end – and we're sure the billycan will keep Phillip from trying to convince her to try it anymore.
