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

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
