I’m A Celebrity 2015: Craig Charles explains why he can’t re-enter the jungle!


Craig Charles has denied rumours that he’s set to re-enter the I’m A Celebrity jungle later this year, and this is why.


Coronation Street actor, Craig Charles was forced to leave last year’s show in Australia after just days in camp following the tragic news his brother died.

According to The Sun newspaper earlier this year, the show producers were hoping that Craig would re-enter the jungle this year to experience it properly.

Unfortunately Craig’s schedule doesn’t allow him to enter the jungle this year as it’s full filming the new series of Red Dwarf.

Craig told ITV’s This Morning: “I’m 2/1 favourite to win! [But] No, I’m not going in.

“I’m filming Red Dwarf. We start filming Red Dwarf in November. We don’t finish until March. That’s the time they film the jungle.”

He continued: I’m not saying it’s something I’d never do again – I hate not finishing things,

“I wanted to finish it, I wanted to give it a good go. You hit the ground with a sprint but you save a little sprint finish for the end. I was holding a lot of stuff back, then ‘doof’.”
