Shaun Ryder is up for more telly projects following his success on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The Happy Mondays frontman was crowned runner-up in the jungle, behind Stacey Solomon.

He told The Sun: "I might have to dabble. That's part of the game now. Apparently if I want to make records then I've got to do that."

The singer said he would like to take former Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher, actor Danny Dyer and Rolling Stone Keith Richards into the jungle if he ever returned.

He also dismissed the current crop of music stars as "a bunch of fairies" for not comparing to his legendary hell-raising ways.

Shaun, who releases a solo record next year, said: "There's no real caners out there now. I couldn't name any - where are they all?"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
