Now 56, Wrighty will reportedly earn a six-figure sum for his time on the show.

“I have been asked to do it every year and every time, I have always thought I am definitely not doing that because there was more and more jeopardy involved,” he said.

“But I think the last series was one of the best I have seen in respect of camaraderie. “Harry and I play golf together and we spoke about it. He had a really great time, it was a fantastic thing for him to do and he is still talking about it to this day!”

“Now it does appeal to me at this particular time. I like the vibe, it is a really cool show and I am really intrigued.”

And while he may have a few phobia, Wrighty is determined to face his fears Down Under.

“Some of those things [snakes, rats and creepy crawlies] will make me squirm but I will deal with them when I am in there!”

He will be in the jungle with Nadine Coyle (singer), Myles Stephenson (singer), Adele Roberts (radio presenter), Andrew Maxwell (comedian), Jacqueline Jossa (actor), Roman Kemp (radio DJ), Caitlyn Jenner (Olympian), James Haskell (rugby player), and Kate Garraway (GMB host).

He is the secodn former Arsenal star to make an appearance in a reality TV show iwth Alex Scott recently competing in Dancing with the Stars.
