‘Coronation Street' Star Michael Le Vell Won't Appear On ‘I'm A Celebrity'... Because Bosses Think He Isn't ‘Entertaining'

Why Won't Michael Be Heading To The Jungle?

‘Coronation Street’ star Michael Le Vell won’t be appearing on the upcoming series of ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’, because TV bosses don’t think he’ll be entertaining enough.

The ‘Corrie’ star has had a dramatic twelve months and took leave from filming in 2013 while he faced sex offence charges at Manchester Crown Court.

Michael was cleared of all the charges, however, his troubles weren’t over and he suffered from alcohol and cocaine issues, which were linked to the stress of the trial.

Despite all this, bosses don’t think Michael will be interesting on the show.

A source tells The Sun there’s “no chance” of Michael being asked to jet off to Australia.

Michael was apparently hoping a stint on the show would help him turn things around.

Michael made a brief return to ‘Corrie’ earlier this year, but left after just six weeks on set to face his personal issues and seek help at a rehab facility.
