Im A Celebrity 2012: Carol Smillie turns down jungle offer

Im A Celebrity

Telly presenter Carol Smillie has turned down an offer to appear on I'm A Celebrity 2012, it's been revealed.

The former model was reportedly offered £60,000 to join other celebs, including TOWIE's Maria Fowler and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, Down Under.

The Changing Rooms star has turned down FIVE offers previously, having vowed never to take part in reality telly again after her stint on Strictly Come Dancing in 2006.

She said previously: “I hate reality TV, though I do watch it. It appeals to the lowest common ­denominator – it’s a freak show.

“The people who appear on these shows make me cringe. I did Strictly, which was ­amazing. You learn a skill and don’t have to live in a house with cameras watching you. But not many shows offer that.

“I think I would know I’d hit ­rock bottom if I ever went on ­something like I’m A Celebrity or Big Brother. I’ve been asked so many times but I never would.”
