I'm A Celebrity star Rebekah Vardy laughs off Piers Morgan's chances in the jungle

She doesn't reckon he's got the stomach for it

Piers Morgan doesn't have what it takes to be King of the Jungle, according to former I'm A Celebrity campmate Rebekah Vardy.

The 2017 ITV reality series contestant scoffed at the Good Morning Britain host's chances of thriving on the show as she took the mickey out of Piers on Twitter earlier today.

Teasing Piers over his claim he'd "much kangaroo testicles" for a £5million fee, Rebekah doubted 54-year-old had the stomach to last out.

"Stop it, you wouldn’t last five minutes Morgan," she tweeted.

The social media mocking continued: "I can't imagine you eating kangaroo balls or sheep anus somehow."

Piers - who retched on GMB during an attempt to eat a vegan sausage roll - responded by insisting nothing was off limits as part of a Bush Tucker trial as long as the price is right.

You wouldn't last five minutes Morgan.

He replied: "I'll do anything for £5million."

Denying him the final word, Rebekah - married to England footballer Jamie Vardy - fired back with three laughing emojis and: "No comment!"
