Ian Wright once hosted I'm A Celeb-style TV show he branded 'sh**' and 'ridiculous'

Ian Wright once presented an I’m A Celebrity-style show that he said was “sh** and ridiculous” and made him question whether he wanted to be on TV any more.

Wrighty, 56, who is struggling in camp, may be questioning his decision to sign up to another reality show.

In his autobiography he wrote about the 2003 show: “There was something called I’d Do Anything and it really made me ask myself, ‘What am I doing here?’ Maybe I saw the title as some kind of writing on the wall.

“When I was told about it the format sounded fantastic.

“But they managed to turn it into a series of sh** dares.

“We’d just started to see the beginnings of the I’m A Celebrity type of thing, and that was what they were starting to go for here.

“It became all about seeing people having to eat bugs or spending the night in a room full of cats. It was ridiculous and I was dying!”

He added: “It was around this point I started thinking I didn’t want to do it any more.”

Ian then became a football pundit and is now a fan favourite on Match of the Day.
