Wright 'would be great in jungle'

The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright would be "brilliant" in the jungle if he goes on ITV1's I'm A Celebrity... Get me Out Of Here!, according to his former co-star Amy Childs.

Amy, who quit the reality show to appear in Celebrity Big Brother, also told ITV's Daybreak she had been in touch with Sam and Billie Faiers after they were attacked in London.

She described the assault on her old co-stars from the show, known to its fans as Towie, as "disgusting".

She said: "It's just jealousy at the end of the day."

Amy, who admitted she would be too scared to go into the jungle, backed Mark to be a hit with audiences.

She said: "I think he would be brilliant in the jungle. He really would be."

Mark, who has starred in the show since it started, is reported to have signed up to the show but an ITV spokesman said it was "speculation" at this stage.

He could expect a five-figure pay packet if he did appear in the jungle compared to the small allowances paid out to the Towie cast.
