Loose Women star Gloria Hunniford has confessed she was offered a place on the line-up of this year's I'm A Celebrity.
The ITV jungle series hosted by Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly returned on Sunday night, with a new cast taking on the challenge.
Caitlyn Jenner, Jacqueline Jossa, Roman Kemp and Ian Wright are among the stars on the latest series.
But a Loose Women panellist was in talks to be on the line-up too, even speaking with producers about doing the show.
Gloria confessed she was approached by ITV for the series and heavily considered doing it.
But after an "honest" chat with bosses about what she would face, Gloria decided the challenge wasn't for her.
Speaking to former contestant Joey Essex and her fellow panellists, Gloria explained what made her change her mind.
She said: "Well this year… I had to have meetings with the producers and the editor.
"In one way I wanted to challenge myself, but when they were really honest with me and told me what it was like, I thought well.
"I’m allergic to mosquitoes really badly, I'm a hospital case with that. I could do without the food I think… I don’t think I could do all the picking up of wood with my dodgy knee.
"I don't think I could do the snake bit, and I certainly couldn’t eat a pig's brain."
Joey recalled his own experiences on the show, with him leaving in 9th place in 2013.
Fellow daytime star Kate Garraway is currently in the jungle, with the Good Morning Britain host facing the next trial.
She was shown struggling with a terrifying plank challenge on Sunday evening, and now she and Caitlyn will face insects and rats in sealed boxes for the first Bushtucker Trial of the series.
A teaser clip released by ITV shows Kate screaming as more and more creatures join her in the box which is elevated in the air.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12:30pm on ITV.
