'I'm A Celebrity' 2014: Melanie Sykes Is 'Ready To Move On' From Ex Husband Jack Cockings... But Not In The Jungle

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...
