Katie Price’s ex Kieran Hayler addresses I’m A Celebrity rumour

He would have a lot to tell in the jungle

| Updated:

Katie Price’s estranged husband Kieran Hayler has said he isn’t doing I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! this year… although he would love to!

The former stripper had been tipped to go into the jungle following the breakdown of his marriage to Katie earlier this year after she accused him of cheating on her again.

Kieran told Now magazine he thinks he would “breeze through” the show’s Bushtucker trials, but being away from his children – son Jett, five, and daughter Bunny, four, – would be difficult.

When asked if he’s heading down under for I’m A Celebrity later this year, Kieran said: “Maybe one day. I’ve not been asked [to do it] but I’d love to do the Jungle.

“I’d breeze through them [the trials] but being away from the kids would be the hardest thing.”

He added to the publication that he’s “sure” plenty of reality shows will come his way because “everyone wants to hear my story”.

It comes after The Sun reported that Kieran had been offered “a big money deal” to appear in the jungle.

A source told the publication in July: “Kieran’s had a real bashing these last few months from Katie – doing I’m A Celebrity would be his chance to shine away from her.

“Kieran wants a big money deal and has told his mates he won’t be doing it for a pittance. Now he’s getting buff again too he’s been saying it’s because he wants to look his best in the jungle.”

Katie has previously starred on the show twice after being a contestant on the third series in 2004 and again in 2009 for the show’s ninth series.

Kieran married former glamour model Katie in 2013, however, their relationship hit a rocky patch after he bedded Katie’s best friend Jane while Katie was pregnant with their daughter Bunny.

Katie, 40, also accused him of getting close to a 19-year-old shop worker earlier this year before they pulled the plug on their marriage for good.
