I’m A Celebrity 2015: Karl Pilkington reveals he DECLINED ITV’s offer!

Karl Pilkington has revealed he recently declined ITV’s offer to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.


Karl Pilkington has been highly tipped to enter the jungle for a number of years and a petition was even started to get him in.

Karl said he compared being invited to take part in I’m A Celebrity by ITV is like getting a nuisance phone call.

He said: “It’s like asking someone if they’ve ever had a call about getting there PPI back,

“I think everyone has been asked haven’t by now haven’t they?

“Maybe it would have been flattering to be asked on the first series of something, but now it’s been running for so long they’ve used up all the good stuff.

“It the same problem with the Queen handing out OBEs, she’ll be giving them to the cast of Made in Chelsea soon.”

Karl told DigitalSpy: “I’ll ever get bored with stuff that’s out there. I was watching that Chris Packham, and he did a bit about this massive glowing thing in the sea. It was well weird. It was like something had decided to camouflage itself as a 30ft carrier bag. I suppose seeing as the sea is getting full of them, nature might imitate them might they.”

I’m A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV.
