James Buckley says he's less against going on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! now that Chris Moyles has been on.

The Radio X DJ revealed how he told The Inbetweeners star and his wife Clair about his stint on the ITV reality show to gauge if James was set to star in the cast for 2022.

Though his response at time was a resounding no, James has now revealed watching Chris on the show has softened his attitude to it somewhat.

"I love Australia. It's my favourite place to go in the world. I would love to go there, but I just cannot do the stuff. The stuff in that show is everything I've actively avoided in my whole life".

When Chris admitted that he didn't do a lot of it, the actor laughed: "You tried".

"I tell you what right? I probably wouldn't be great jumping out of a helicopter." He added, taking a jab at Chris Moyles: "I do think I'd be alright using a spanner".

When Clair was asked if she'd consider going on the celebrity competition: "No, I don't think I could be away from my kids for that long. I'd miss my babies too much".

James added: "I wouldn't be able to do it. It wouldn't help my career. The best I could hope for if I went on I'm a Celebrity is the one that people just forget are there, but what's probably likely is I'm going to be tired and miserable and irritable and people are going to go, 'Who's this miserable idiot on the telly?'

"Everyone will end up hating me. I won't end up popular," to which Clair joked: "And then I'll end up getting that medal I deserve".

However - changing his mind slightly at the end, the YouTube star admitted to Chris: "The thing is, I'm not as against it after watching you in it".
