Towie star teases I’m a Celebrity stint as he reveals he’s been training for the show | The Sun

TOWIE star James Lock has revealed big plans to sign up to I'm A Celebrity – saying: "I'd love to go into the jungle like Tarzan".

James, who revealed last month that he was taking a break from the Essex-based programme, is now eyeing up a spot Down Under on the ITV jungle-based show.

The Essex star, 36, was put through his paces on MTV's The Challenge UK and the US version, even taking part in a grim food challenge.

After appearing on the gruelling show, James is now thinking about signing up for his next big challenge.

He said: "I would love to do them shows because it forces me to step out of my comfort zone. I'd love to go into the jungle like Tarzan, swinging through the trees."

“We had to do an eating challenge and one of the challenges was eating pigs brains but I did it straight away – they actually thought I’d cheated," he told The Daily Star.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun about the new venture, James said: "It is a big decision, any sort of new venture is a big decision because of course I always have to weigh up career-wise what direction I'm going in.

"It's something that I've considered for a long time, there has been a lot of interest from people trying to get me onto the platform.

"I've finally decided to bite the bullet and jump on board."

James said he has no qualms with stripping off for content – saying he's proud of the nude campaigns and calendars he's done in the past.

"If you Google my name, all the shoots I've done, I've done a lot of shoots that are quite explicit for well-known magazines, tabloids, calendars, even for Towie on the show I've been naked.

"I've run down Brentwood High Street naked.

"I'm very confident with myself and my body and I'm happy to be able to do anything in that sense."
