Lisa Riley has revealed she's declined offers for I'm a Celebrity SEVEN times.

The former soap actress and ex Strictly Come Dancing contestant says she could "never" take part in the show due to her massive fear of bugs.

Speaking on ITV's Loose Women earlier today, Lisa confessed: "They [I'm A Celebrity producers] kept coming back and back and back.

"For me, the spiders, eating stuff... that would be fine, but mice and rats I could never, ever deal with - my cat once brought a mouse in and I was literally neurotic."

After months of rumours, ITV yesterday confirmed the first line up of celebrity campers on this year's show and Lisa was unsurprisingly not on the list.

Instead, the ten celebrities who are braving the Jungle for the new series include Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, ex England footballer Wayne Bridge, comic Joel Dommett, dancer Ola Jordan and actor Larry Lamb.

Joining them are Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, Olympic hockey player Sam Quek, TV and Radio presenter Lisa Snowdon, soap star Adam Thomas and TV personality Carol Vorderman-MBE.

Leaving their plush pads and luxuries far behind, the celebrity campers will spend up to three weeks taking on the harsh surroundings of the Australian Jungle, with a whole host of brand new nasty surprises created just for them.

The new series begins this Sunday, November 13 at 9PM with hosts Ant and Dec.

And straight after you can catch new spin off show Extra Camp on ITV2 with new hosts including Vicky Pattison.
