Whitmore: I wouldn't last in jungle

Laura Whitmore has revealed she wouldn't last a day as a contestant on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! - despite landing a job on the spin-off show.

The MTV Europe host is excited about joining former king of the jungle Joe Swash and funnyman Russell Kane on the behind-the-scenes programme about the camp.

But she admitted at the Captain Morgan's Spiced beach party in London: "I probably wouldn't last a day. I don't like creepy crawlies and I like my comforts, so I don't think I'd last. I'd be kicked out after a few hours."

I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here Now! will run on ITV2 and will see the presenting trio joined by a celebrity panel to give their verdicts on this year's antics.

Irish presenter Laura - who replaces new Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack on the jungle show - also revealed her dream contestant for I'm A Celebrity.

"David Hasselhoff, The Hoff. I have a secret crush on him," she confessed.

"I used to watch Baywatch as a kid and not realise all the other connotations and innuendos, I just thought they were saving people's lives. I think he'd be great. He's such an entertainer."
