Last summer, popular French telly personality Fred ruled out signing up for a run in the jungle on grub grounds.
The Channel 4 maître d’ made it clear he has no interest in being given a table where he’d have to chow down in a Bushtucker trial.
Fred told Hello! in July 2022: “I don’t think I’d do I’m A Celebrity. I wouldn’t be too keen on eating a camel’s anus or something like that.”
Furthermore, he went on: “I know I eat frogs, I’m French, but at least those frogs are cooked!”
Fred added: “They are deliciously prepared, whereas a camel’s anus is put in a blender and you have to eat it raw. It’s awful. I know people who have been there – it’s really not ‘gastronomie’.”
However, TV execs are said to be keen to make a reservation with Fred, with the thought he should prove quite the snack with admirers in the audience.
Additionally, The Sun suggests the boxing fanatic – who is engaged to fiancée Fruitcake – would also get good reviews from fans for appearances in the camp shower.
