Carol VordermanFormer Countdown maths expert Carol Vorderman has claimed that she turned down £250,000 to become a contestant on this year's I'm A Celebrity.

The 51-year-old - who's now one of the main presenters of ITV's Loose Women - said she gets offers for the jungle reality show every year during an appearance on Channel 4's 8 Out Of 10 Cats.

"I'm not good with numbers," Carol joked, adding that the offer was 'definitely in the hundreds of thousands'.

"Can I go dressed as you?" her team captain Jon Richardson asked.

"I'd let the kangaroo eat MY balls," responded opposing captain Sean Lock.

TheLoose Women girls have recently fared well on reality TV, with Denise Welch winning and Coleen Nolan coming second on Celebrity Big Brother.

Carol's edition of 8 Out Of 10 Cats - which also features Big Brother's Bit On The Side co-host Alice Levine - airs tonight at 10.00pm on C4.
