Judge Rinder has ruled out any more reality telly following Strictly Come Dancing.

The telly judge, who finished fifth in Strictly last year, gave a firm no to appearing on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.


He said: "I only did Strictly because that was completely different and because dancing was my love. You won't see me devouring kangaroo bollocks."

Judge Rinder went on to admit he was no longer dancing following the end of Strictly, explaining: "I wish I was but there aren't that many places I can go to. It's a real shame."

But he'll be tuning in this year and on Strictly's new judge Shirley Ballas, Judge Rinder raved: "I don't know her personally, but she's perfect for the job because she's from the ballroom world and is incredibly technical.

"She's the real deal. It was important to get someone who knows their stuff, because to replace someone like len you need to be pretty special. It's good to have another woman on the panel."

Meanwhile, with the jungle ruled out, Judge Rinder revealed his next TV project due to air in 2018.

"Next year I'm doing a show called Crowd Caller. It looks at cases and it's completely interactive with viewers at home. People vote and make judgements about whether the suspects are guilty or not," he teased to Star magazine this week.
