Series 19 of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! explodes into action on Sunday with the likes of Ian Wright, Nadine Coyle and Caitlyn Jenner heading Down Under. With this in mind, we thought we’d ask Ian Holloway for his thoughts on the show...
Are you a fan of I’m A Celeb?
I’m a big fan of the show. It’s good for anyone who wants to lose a bit of weight.
I watched bits of it last year because everybody was talking about it and I thought Harry Redknapp was absolutely himself, his relationship with his wife is brilliant and he deserved to win it.
Would ever be tempted to enter the jungle?
Well, they didn’t ask me did they? I think my son has previously put my name in it!
I’m not being funny but I was with Colin Murray a few months ago and he said ‘You should go on that’ and the people at TalkSPORT think I should go on that because they know how afraid I am of snakes, they will find it so funny.
I’m absolutely terrified of snakes. I don’t really mind spiders but if I had to eat those bugs then I’d literally throw up.
Regarding snakes, I remember Shaun Ryder being bitten by one. That would have terrified me, I would have fainted.
Crocodiles? Yeah I’m bound to be bloody scared of them because they can eat you can’t they.
Ian Wright is the early favourite to win the 2019 edition
Would you eat an animal’s testicle?
I don’t think about anyone else’s balls! They don’t bother me. It’s the things that are still alive that bother me, or eyeballs, I would barf at that.
I have this reaction to anything I don’t like and I used to be really fussy as a kid, so I think I would struggle for a lot of reasons.
Are you scared of heights?
I don’t know, because I’m so short I probably won’t be used to them.
I wouldn’t worry about jumping out a plane. That would be a challenge I love that.
Ian Wright, who you briefly worked with at QPR, is the early favourite...
As a person, I would have hated to have competed with him because he’s such a wonderful fella, he’s so lively, he’s so enthusiastic. He’s a great bloke.
For me, you wouldn’t want to be the third person to go on there from football when Harry Redknapp and Ian Wright both won and you then lose!
