Jamie Carragher has revealed that ITV has offered him a place on ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’, but it’s safe to say that the former footballer probably won’t be signing up anytime soon.

The former Liverpool defender shared a screenshot of an email from his agent - who wasn’t very confident that the star would fancy a stint in the jungle - on Twitter.

“Jay, I’m pretty sure this is going to be a no mate but didn’t want someone to say they had tried contacting you and I hadn’t told you,” the email read’.

“ITV have been in touch to see if you would consider going into ‘I’m a Celeb get me out of here’ I’m pretty sure it would be impossible with your work schedule. Let me know and I’ll get back to them.” [sic]

Alongside the email, Jamie jokily added: “Finally!”

He then retweeted this - frankly, alarming - picture:

Since retiring from playing football at the end of the 2012/13 season, Jamie has carved a successful career as a broadcaster, and is currently part of Sky Sports’ presenting team.

A number of former sports stars have fared well on ‘I’m A Celeb’, including Kieron Dyer, who came fourth in series 15, Jimmy Bullard, Chris Eubank and Rebecca Adlington.
