Will Tulisa Contostavlos be heading into the jungle for I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here this year? Not according to her, she won't be!

Not keen on setting up camp in the Australian jungle and all that lives in it, N-Dubz star Tulisa has said she "wouldn't last five minutes" on the ITV1 reality show.

Earlier this month, Ant and Dec donned their jungle gear to film the trailer for this year's 14th series of I'm A Celeb and, since then, the rumour mill of who's taking part has gone into overdrive.

Despite being named as a likely contestant, Tulisa told Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw today that she wouldn't be able to handle living in the jungle.

"I couldn't do it," she said. "I'm scared of the dark and I've got an ultimate epic bug phobia. I can't even handle a spider in my bath tub."

While the former X Factor judge is used to appearing on our screens, Tulisa claimed if she was ever going to do a TV show again, it would have to be something that relates to her music.

She continues: "The rumours come up every year. I'm a musician, I've done TV but I've never been a reality TV star and it's not the route I'm looking to go down.

"It's all about music and when I do TV, I want it to be connected."

During the Judges' Houses round for this year's X Factor series, Tulisa joined Louis Walsh in Bermuda. Appearing out of the sea, she surprised the groups as Louis' guest mentor and helped the Irish music mogul pick his three finalists for the live shows.

Asked if she would ever rejoin the panel as a judge, Tulisa didn't hesitate to say "yes", adding that she "would really enjoy" being back on the show.

Meanwhile, Tulisa has recently announced her comeback single, 'Living Without You'.

Speaking about her new track, which has a dance music vibe, Tulisa revealed she had to put up quite the fight to record it.

"I was getting ready to go into the studio with Fazer [from N-Dubz] again," she revealed. "I explained the sort of sound I wanted and he sent me a voice note of a record and was like. 'Do you want something along these lines'. I was like, 'No, I want that song. I want that record!'

"I had to fight with him for two months to get it, but I knew straight away it was The One."

'Living Without You' is Tulisa's first single in two years.

Tulisa's comeback single 'Living Without You' is released on 7 December through AATW.
