Craig Charles has ruled out a return to I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! this year because he'll be too busy with other filming commitments.

Coronation Street actor and DJ Craig dispelled rumours he was heading back into the jungle during a chat on This Morning.

Craig took part in I'm A Celebrity last year, but he quit in the first week following the shock news of his brother's death.

Following his sudden exit last year, it was speculated that Craig would be going back into the Australian jungle for the new series to get another shot at the jungle experience.

Craig, who announced in May that he was quitting Corrie after 10 years on the show, said of the jungle rumours: "I'm 2-1 favourite to win. But no, I'm not going in. I'm filming Red Dwarf in November so that's the time they film the jungle.

"I'm not saying it's something I would never do again."
