Marco Pierre White Jr could be heading for the I'm A Celebrity jungle

Big Brother 2016

Marco Pierre White Jr could take part in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here this year.

The son of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White made quite the name for himself on last year's Big Brother.

His antics with fellow housemate Laura Carter shocked viewers and saw Marco get kicked out of the house by fans of the show in the first public vote.

But he could now be set for a return to reality telly, eyeing up a spot on the I'm A Celebrity 2017 line up.

It's after Marco turned down a chance to appear on MTV's Ex On The Beach alongside Laura.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Marco said: "I definitely want to get back into TV. I've got to choose carefully though. I turned down 'Ex on the Beach'. I don't want to go off the rails again."

A source said previously: "Marco's unpredictable nature makes him absolute TV gold. When he was in the Big Brother house his antics shocked the nation - and he was only in there for a week."

They added: "Producers think that putting him on a show like Ex On The Beach will bring out an even dirtier side of him and make this series the sexiest ever."

Laura is also said have been approached but turned it down too.

Her rep said: "She was approached for series six, but declined as she's going back into acting and had work commitments to fulfil.

"They asked her in for an initial meeting, but she declined because she didn't want to do reality anymore - but she wouldn't say no to Strictly or I'm A Celeb."
