I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! may be perfect entertainment TV, but TOWIE star Mark Wright says going on the show was boring.
The reality TV star turned presenter said it was the most boring four weeks of his life when he entered the Aussie jungle in 2011.
Mark, 33, said: "I think the most adventurous thing I’ve ever done is taking part in the jungle, I’m A Celebrity, jumping out of a plane, eating stupid insects.
"Once you leave you say, 'wow', on the other hand, it’s the most boring four weeks of your life. One day feels like a month."
Despite being bored, Mark added on Shopping With Keith Lemon that celebs do form close friendships during the show.
Michelle Keegan's fella said: "You do make unique bonds but a lot of that’s put on, it’s all like, 'Oh you’re my best friend, I can’t wait to see you…'
"I genuinely thought I’d see Dougie Poynter, my best mate. If you watch back all the bromance videos, it’s all crying, 'oh you’re my best mate, I can’t wait to see you."
Awkwardly, Mark continued: "We’ve not met up once in nine years, not once."
Dougie went on to win the show and be crowned King of the Jungle.
This year's I'm A Celeb has been relocated to Wales due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In a bid to keep the show on the road in some form, ITV bosses have hired out haunted Gwrych Castle.
While the new camp has a totally different feel and vibe to the Aussie jungle, bosses have insisted the heart of the show will stay the same.
