Melanie Sykes has said that she’s ready to find love again… but won’t be on the lookout for it in the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle.


Earlier this year, Melanie filed for divorce from her ex-husband, Joe Cockings, who she met on Twitter, after just over a year of marriage.

The TV presenter landed Down Under this week, ahead of the new series of the reality show, but has said that while she's ready for a new man, she won't be getting involved in a TV romance.

She told The Mirror: “I am ready to move but I’ve got no interest in starting a ­relationship in front of millions of people with my sons watching.

“It would just be a little bit weird. So, no, I doubt that’s going to happen.”

In previous series, romance - or, at the very least, showmance - has blossomed between a number of celebrities, such as Amy Willerton and Joey Essex, who briefly dated after they left the jungle last year.

Katie Price and Peter Andre were a bit more successful, tying the knot and having two children together, after meeting on ‘I’m A Celebrity’, though - SPOILER ALERT - it didn't last between them.

Melanie has also ruled out strutting her stuff around the jungle camp in her bikini like a host of other stars have done in the past, though she’ll make an exception at shower time.

She said: “I’m not going to be walking around camp in a bikini because millions of people are going to be watching.

“Obviously I’m going to have a wash. I couldn’t give a monkeys about the shower. Unless there’s some massive dude, who can block people while I wash, you’ll definitely see me.”

‘I’m A Celebrity’ launches on Sunday, 16 November - and here are the celebs you can look forward to arriving in the jungle...
