James Hewitt claims he has turned down £70,000 to take part in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The polo-playing playboy – shamed for trying to sell his love letter from the late Princess Diana for £10 million – appeared in Channel 4’s The Games in 2003, Channel Five’s Back To Reality and performed a duet with Rebecca Loos in 2006 on The X Factor: Battle Of The Stars.

But Hewitt, who has moved to Marbella, where he opening a bar and club called The Polo House, told The Daily Telegraph: “They keep asking me to do I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! It’s good money – £70,000 they’ve offered – but the club is my priority now.”

He said: “I see no point in being famous unless you are an MP, an artist, actress or a member of the Royal family. There is a point to being rich, of course, but I’m happy with who I am. I think I am genuinely a good person and I have analysed myself in depth.”
