He’s famous for living in one of the most expensive areas of London and as Made in Chelsea star Hugo Taylor swaps his luxurious lifestyle for sleeping under the stars in the wild, he hopes to use the opportunity to show people there’s more to him than meets the eye.
Admitting he felt completely ‘overwhelmed’ when approached to take part on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, the 26-year-old entertainment PR says he wants to dispel the myth that he only knows people who live in Chelsea.
The reality star also revealed he hoped that the ITV1 series would be a springboard to more work in acting.
“I am 26 and I am starting my career,” he explains. “I would love to do more TV. Of course you do not know what is going to happen but my other big passion in life is the History of Art. I would like to make programmes about art and architecture and make them interesting. I’d also like to write my own TV shows.
“I am excited about what lies ahead. Taking yourself away from the first world of Champagne for a bit is going to be interesting.”
