BBC broadcaster Michael Buerk has revealed there is "no problem with nudity" on ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The 69-year-old was a contestant on the reality series in 2014.

Writing in this week's Radio Times, he opened up about being told the jungle rules and the behaviour that was banned for being "inappropriate" by ITV.

He said: "It was all rather odd because it was made clear that there was 'no problem' with nudity ('in a non-sexual context'), sexual behaviour 'that is reciprocated', and rudeness."

But the former newsreader noted: "The one thing they were adamant about was harming the wildlife: 'You could be prosecuted'."
