TOWIE's Pete Wicks has revealed that he would like to take part in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Last month, TOWIE fans shouted out loud on Twitter as the latest series of I'm A Celeb aired, and many pinned their hopes on Pirate Pete heading Down Under for some jungle action.

While many said Pete would be "eye candy in the jungle", one fan said seeing him on screen would be a "visual treat", while another likened him to Tarzan.

"I'd love to do I'm A Celebrity one day," Pete tells Reveal. "I think it'd be a great experience. It's flattering that people were saying that."

Of course, Pete was glued to this year's series as he was cheering on two of his close friends, co-star Ferne McCann and former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison.

Pete said he'd be keen to follow in the footsteps of his pals Vicky and Ferne.

Vicky was crowned Queen of the Jungle, with Union J singer George Shelley coming in second place and Ferne in third.

"I watched it this year and I thought it was one of the best series they've had for a long time," Pete continues. "So yes, I'd love to do it."

The Only Way Is Essexmas airs Wednesday 16 December at 10pm on ITVBe.
