Swash wants to work with Winstone

Joe Swash was chuffed when Ray Winstone knew his name

Joe Swash has revealed he would like the chance to work with Ray Winstone.

The former EastEnders star and king of the jungle fancies collaborating with the Sexy Beast actor, having had an encounter with him.

"I met Ray Winstone once at a charity event. I tapped him on the shoulder and said I was a big fan. He knew my name and everything - I was dead chuffed! He said, 'Hello Joe!' It was brilliant!" recalled the 29-year-old.

Joe's next TV job sees him being a team captain, alongside his former I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here Now! co-host Caroline Flack on new ITV2 game show Cadbury Spots v Stripes Minute To Win It.

"We had so much fun filming it. It was one of those times when you have to pinch yourself to make sure you realise it's actually a job," he said.

His dream job, however, is presenting the spin-off series to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

"The jungle is a dream job, going out there for a couple of months every November. I'd like to do that for much longer," he revealed.

"I just like presenting, doing interesting and funny work. I'm not sure whether my dream job would involve acting or presenting."

:: Cadbury Spots v Stripes Minute To Win It starts on ITV2 on Tuesday, August 30 at 8pm.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
