'I'm A Celebrity' 2017: Carol Smillie Reveals Why She's Turned The Show Down FIVE Times

'Maybe it’s not a good move for me, showing my true colours…'

Carol Smillie has revealed why she turned down an offer from ‘I’m A Celebrity’ bosses on five separate occasions.

Best known for her stint at the helm of ‘Changing Rooms’, Carol previously appeared on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ way back in 2006, but she’s insisted that this didn’t exactly give her the reality TV bug.

‘I’m A Celebrity’ is set to return to our screens for its 17th series in autumn, with potential contestants signing up including former rugby star Ben Cohen and footballer’s wife Rebekah Vardy.

Ex-soap star Ryan Thomas was also tipped to be taking part, though this is now looking unlikely thanks to his appearance in ‘Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls’.
