Dame Joan Collins turns down I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!
Dame Joan Collins has turned down a "massive offer" to take part in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
The 82-year-old actress has revealed she was once handed a huge deal to join the Australian jungle but decided to politely decline because reality TV is not her "cup of tea."
Speaking to reporters at the signing of her new book, 'The St. Tropez Lonely Hearts Club' in London, she said: "I was offered a massive amount of money about three years ago, and I kindly turned them down. It's not my cup of tea. It's just not me."
The new series of the popular ITV show is set to kick off on November 15 featuring a star-studded line-up.
Former 'Geordie Shore' star Vicky Pattison, rapper 50 Cent, 'Weakest Link' host Anne Robinson and 'X Factor' alum James Arthur are all set to come face-to-face with creepy crawlies, tuck into rice and beans and share their beds with some of the most dangerous animals in the world.
However, not everyone is willing to venture into unknown territory, as 'X Factor' veteran Louis Walsh reportedly turned down a £500,000 offer to appear on the show.
Meanwhile, loveable comedy duo Ant and Dec are also back on board to host as they put the celebrities through their paces, force them to come face up to their fears and provide them with some much needed encouragement.
