Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas reveals she would love to participate in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
The former professional ballroom dancer has been the head judge on the BBC One dancing show since 2017.
Speaking to actor Christopher Biggins on ITV’s new series The Savoy, Ballas, 61, said: “I’m a celebrity…get me out of here!”
While the pair were enjoying a meal at London’s Hotel The Savoy, Biggins replied: “Oh my god, you’re bound to be able to!”
However, Ballas pointed out that the timing of celebrity reality shows often clashes strictly.
Begins, who was crowned ‘King of the Jungle’ on I’m A Celebrity in 2007, recalled his own experiences from the jungle, saying: “I had to eat kangaroo penis and kangaroo bolak.”
Ballas replied non-stop: “testicles, penis, whatever. It’s just meat.”
Ballas and Begins join the second series of The Savoy – an all-access series that follows hotel life in the aftermath of the pandemic, during one of the most challenging times for the hospitality industry.
After losing tens of millions of pounds in revenue, The Savoy is struggling to stay on top of the competitive, London luxury hotel market.

With behind-the-scenes access, the series takes viewers up and down, from guests and famous faces walking through revolving doors to staff meeting their every request.
In the first episode of the new series, restaurant director Thierry welcomes Ballas and Begins for dinner.
Savoy airs June 15 at 9 PM on ITV.
