Julie Walters would take part in I'm A Celebrity... were it not for the spiders

Julie Walters

​British acting legend Julie Walters has said she's up for ​I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

It could prove to be an unlikely A-list signing for the ITV series, were it not for the spiders.

The star of stage and screen spoke to the Radio Times about taking part in reality shows and wasn't ruling much out.

"The one that makes me think, 'I could do that' is always ​I'm a Celebrity​," she told the magazine. "Of course, I'd never do it because of the spiders, but the thought of overcoming fear is quite interesting to me."

However the Mamma Mia! star felt the biggest obstacle to appearing wasn't even the bugs, adding: "But I'm too old now."

The 66-year-old, who's a fan of other reality shows from Made In Chelsea to the Great British Bake Off, went on to reveal she'd also consider Strictly Come Dancing.

"It would be a toss-up between [​I'm a Celebrity​] and ​Strictly Come Dancing​," Walters said. "But I couldn't bear Craig Revel Horwood telling me, 'Stand up, dear!' because of my posture."
