I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! 2023 is days away from airing on ITV.

The former Ukip leader has been approached by ITV bosses several times to be on the show, and this year, the GB News presenter might do it.

According to previous reports, it was claimed that Nigel is given a mega-money deal to be on the show. The amount is expected to be worth up to £1 million, however, he has branded the show ‘humiliating’ in the past.

After reports and rumours surfaced online, Nigel took matters in his own hands and confirmed that he is giving it a ‘very very serious consideration.’ The 59-year-old confirmed:

Several times since 2016 I’ve had ITV saying ‘come into the jungle’, and they’ve offered me substantial amounts of money to do so.
They have been back on the phone this year. The Sun mocked up as if I was there already and the Mail seems certain I am going to go.

This year, I am giving it very, very serious consideration.

GB News reported his change of heart has a purpose and cause behind it. The change of heart stems from his wish to ‘connect’ with the younger generation who will be watching I’m A Celeb. Explaining his purpose, he said:

You’ve got about 10 million young people who watch that programme. These are people that don’t really watch the news or read newspapers, but they still care about the country they live in and their futures.
In many ways, the futures of young people have been blighted, they don’t have the same opportunities that their parents and grandparents had, and they would love to look for solutions.

In my mind, if I was to do it, I might be able to connect with that audience.

Realising the gravitas of the situation, he added that he’s far from having made a decision yet. However, the outcome will come forward in the next 48 hours. Nigel said:

Goodness me, they all watch I’m a Celebrity. There are downsides to doing it as well.
I haven’t fully made my mind up, but I am running a poll on my TikTok asking whether I should do it.
I am in talks contractually and those talks have been going on for two or three days.
There will be an absolute definitive answer in the next 48 hours.

If Nigel confirms to be on the show, he will be following in the footsteps of Matt Hancock - who appeared on the show last year.
