The Only Way is Essex star said he would struggle to take part in the bushtucker trials involving bugs if he were to sign up.

ITV bosses are said to be keen to sign Essex, after his former co-star Mark Wright was a runner-up back in 2011, reports The Sun.

Essex said: "I would cry my eyes out in I'm a Celebrity.

"They have approached me. I'd consider doing it but I know for a fact I'd be really scared so it would probably damage my life.

"I think I'd be more scared of the challenges than eating the bugs. I'm really bad with bugs.

"A bug hit me while I was on safari on holiday and I thought I was going to get malaria. Another bug hit me in the face and I screamed."

He added: "I reckon I'd win because I would be so scared. I don't know what I'd do about my hair. I'd have to grow it long like the guy in Jumanji."

Joey Essex was seen having a blazing row with fiancée Sam Faiers on last night's episode of The Only Way is Marbs on ITV2.
