Comedian Karl Pilkington has revealed that he was offered the chance to go on I'm A Celebrity.

The Idiot Abroad star, who is currently promoting the second series of The Ricky Gervais Show, said that putting up with the other contestants was what put him off signing up for the reality show.

"I am not a fan of spiders, but I don't think anyone is," he said. "[But] my main worry is being stuck with whoever else is there... My worst nightmare would be to see Ricky [Gervais]."

Gervais commented: "Why would you ever want to do [reality TV]? I'd never do it."

The Ricky Gervais Show returns to Channel 4 next week.
