I'm A Celebrity 2012: Ant & Dec want Tim Westwood in the jungle!

Ant and Dec (Britain's Got Talent 2012)

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here jungle could see the likes of Tim Westwood and Grace Jones, if hosts Ant and Dec get their way!

The pair told the Daily Star this week that the Radio 1 DJ and singer were their hopes for this eyar’s line up.

Bosses have been trying to get Tim Westwood into the jungle for many years, with claims that he’s turned down as much as £100,000 to take part in the series.

“Tim would be amazing. He’s top of our list,” Ant told the newspaper yesterday. “I know the producers have asked him a couple of times before and he has said ‘No’.

“But the thing is eventually they all say ‘Yes’. We just wear them down.

“There are so many people who don’t know about Tim and this would bring him to a new audience.”

Meanwhile Ant’s pal Dec was hoping for some rather different musical talent in the Aussie camp this autumn.

He said: “I did hear that Grace Jones is going in after her performance at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in June.

“Is she really 64?

“She’d be great in the jungle swinging that bamboo hoop around.”

I’m A Celebrity airs on ITV1 from November.
