TOWIE's Ferne McCann says shes not up for Celebrity Big Brother.

The reality star was heavily rumoured to appear in last year's series but instead ended up on ITV's I'm A Celebrity.

Ferne made the final of the jungle show and has since 'taken a break' from The Only Way Is Essex, currently hosting on This Morning.

And speaking on the show today on the topic of reality telly shows, Ferne revealed: "I don't think I would do Big Brother. I feel like I've done the jungleā€¦ I don't think I would be good in the house. I like being outdoors."

She concluded: "No, I wouldn't do Celebrity Big Brother."

Phillip Schofield agreed, saying he feared ending up stuck in the house with a "tricky character".

"No chance," he declared. "I know I would end up with someone in there I would hate, a really tricky character. The sort of thing that would consume your whole experience."

Phillip quipped: "But at least Katie Hopkins wouldn't be in there because she's already done it."

Meanwhile Phil seemed to pour cold water on recent Celebrity Big Brother line up rumours, saying that no one had been signed up yet.

He explained: "I was talking to someone who is a senior executive on Bit On the Side and apparently they're saying that at the moment, no one is signed up and no one has a clue what's going on.

"It's interesting because there may be these secret deals going on that even the team don't know about."

The new series of Celebrity Big Brother begins in August on Channel 5.
