He says he had plenty of work lined up for 2020 – only for it to all be cancelled as a result of the pandemic.

But he says that hopefully this I’m A Celebrity stint will help him pay off his credit card debts.

While speaking to The Sun he said: “And now I am literally skint. You save money for a rainy day but you don’t expect the rainy day to last six months.

“Thankfully I’ve been able to borrow money from mates, my family and the bank and my wife is now very happy we can finally pay off the credit card!”

And while on I’m A Celebrity he even lamented of how he’d gotten rejected from appearing in a Mr Tumble movie.

He said work had dried up during lockdown, and he failed to get even a small part in the film.
