She's a huge fan of the show!

She recently returned to our screens on Britain's Got Talent: The Champions and now Amanda Holden has responded to rumours that she's about to appear on another ITV favourite.

Speaking to co-host Jamie Theakston on her Heart breakfast show, Amanda opened up about recent stories that she's signed up to appear in this year's I'm A Celebrity.

Announcing that he had a "showbiz exclusive", Jamie told Amanda: "You're going to be so good in there."

Jamie then revealed that a magazine had said she was "taking part in the show hosted by pals Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly".

"It is not true," Amanda said. "I just can't understand where this stuff comes from. It's ever so funny."

Explaining that she's a "busy lady", Amanda said: "When would I do it first of all? I'm here every single morning."

I'm not so keen on a cockroach just because I've heard they smell a bit nasty. I look at those people and have huge admiration for them.

She added: "This is an official can everyone stop writing about it, I'm not doing it."

Admitting that it is her "favourite", Amanda said she "absolutely" loves the show, which is filmed in the Australian jungle.

Jamie then asked if she would do it for "a million quid". "No," came Amanda's answer.

"Two million quid?"

"No. There's no money I'd do it for."

"Eight million quid?" he pressed.

"Hmm, maybe," Amanda laughed.

Jamie also asked Amanda how she'd feel about taking part in the show's famous Bushtucker Trials.

"I have no problem with putting stuff in my mouth, bugs," she revealed. "I pick up spiders with my bare hands."

She added: "I'm not so keen on a cockroach just because I've heard they smell a bit nasty. I look at those people and have huge admiration for them every single year."

Jamie then addressed rumours about the rest of the show line-up, asking Amanda what she thought of Richard Madeley apparently signing up.

"That would be great telly," she said.

Blue's Duncan James, former footballer Ian Wright and EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa have also reportedly signed up.

"She's fit," Amanda said. "She can do the bikini in the waterfall shots, that's standard."

After recently being named Rear Of The Year, we can't help but think Amanda would've been the perfect candidate for the infamous waterfall shots!
