Stevi Ritchie: I'd do I'm A Celeb for free
Stevi Ritchie would go on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' for free.
The 42-year-old star finished in sixth place on 'The X Factor' in 2014 and the following year took part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' with fellow contestant and fiance Chloe Jasmine Whichello but admitted the show he really wants to try his luck on is the long-running challenge show - which sees famous faces living in the Australian jungle without luxuries for up to three weeks - because it the "best" thing on TV.
He is quoted by the Daily Star's HOTV Column as saying: "It's not about the money for me, I'm just a huge fan of the show. It is the best reality show going and I wouldn't even hesitate signing up. I wouldn't even read the terms and conditions, I'd just do it!"
Stevi previously explained that he is a "huge fan" of celebrity reality shows and admitted he would be up for the "challenges" the survival competition has to offer, as he begged hosts Ant and Dec to get in touch.
He said: "I’m a huge fan of celebrity reality shows! Out of all of those ones, I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! personally seem to be the most interesting ’cause it feels like a challenge and I’m up for it. I would absolutely love to get on. 'I’m a Celebrity', I want that show so bad! Happy to be a replacement. Ant and Dec, give me a call.”
Several other 'X Factor' contestants have headed down under in recent years, with 'Sax' singer Fleur East landing in fourth place in 2018 following Jake Quickenden finishing as runner up behind sports star Carl Fogarty in 2014 and 'Loose Women' panellist Stacey Solomon being crowned Queen of the Jungle in 2010.
