Warwick Davis has turned down I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The actor, famous for his roles in films such as Star Wars and Harry Potter, says he doesn't ever see himself in the jungle.

Warwick said: "I get asked to do a lot of reality shows. I love watching them but they don't appeal to me as a performer.

"I'm A Celebrity got in touch, but I didn't even find out what I would be getting paid."

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the star of new musical Eugenius, added: "At the moment I'm busy enough with other stuff."

Warwick isn't the only celeb to turn down the jungle.

Piers Morgan recently revealed he turned down 'a lot of money' to appear on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

The former newspaper editor turned Good Morning Britain presenter suggested no amount would get him on the show.

"I've been offered lots of money for these things, to go and eat bugs," he said on the ITV show. "They say 'hey, do you want to go to a jungle in Australia and eat kangaroo testicles as Ant and Dec mock you?' - no thanks.

"Why would I do that?"

Meanwhile, some celebs have found themselves being turned down by the jungle.

S Club 7's Paul Cattermole was rejected from I'm A Celebrity for not being famous enough.

“I have asked them many times if they will let me in and they won’t have me. I’m not famous enough, apparently.

I'm A Celebrity returns to ITV in the autumn.
