Will Mellor keen on I’m a Celebrity appearance

Will Mellor has put his hat in the ring for the next I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, although he’s not sure his agent will be too pleased.

The former Hollyoaks actor is filming follow-ups to his two new series White Van Man and In With The Flynns, but hopes to find a gap to fly out to Australia for the reality show too.

He said: “I’m a Celebrity is my favourite reality show, and I’ve really enjoyed the most recent one. Every year I say I’d love to do it, which makes my wife laugh because she says I’m rubbish with everything. I hate spiders and camping and stuff like that. Maybe one day.”

But the Manchester actor also has his reservations about appearing on the jungle show, and says his agent might have too.

He said: “The thing that really worries me is I’m not sure how it’d affect my career. I wouldn’t want to go on it and get known as a celebrity, and then that ruin my acting work. I’m not sure my agent would be very pleased if I said I was going to do the next one, either!”

One thing Will is definitely doing, however, is trying his chances in America.

He said: “I’m going with the executive producer of In With The Flynns. She’s worked on loads of top American shows such as Roseanne, and we’re going to see about maybe working over there.”
