Egan wants ultimate jungle champion

Kian Egan has admitted he tried to wangle his way into an I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! champion of champions contest just days after winning last year's show.

The Westlife singer was crowned King of the Jungle in the last series and told Radio Times he had such a great time, he wanted to go straight back into camp.

He said: "Within two days of coming out of there, I was talking to a producer saying, 'you should do a version where all of the winners go in'.

"They were like, 'No, I don't think that works. Once people have seen you go through that experience once...' I get where they're coming from, I'm going to be prepared for everything the second time around, you know what I mean?"

Kian will still be involved this year as he will report on each show for This Morning, will fly out to Australia in December for spin-off show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here Now! and will hand over his winner's crown to the new victor.

He said: "Now all these new people are going out there ... it's exciting in one sense, but obviously there's a little part of me that feels like 'Oh man, I wish I was doing it now'.

"I loved being in there. I had a really great experience."
