Coronation Street’s Craig Charles has revealed that he won’t be returning to I’m A Celebrity this year, due to a busy schedule.
Craig sadly left the show last year after finding out his brother Dean had died, and it doesn’t look like he won’t be returning anytime soon.
The actor won’t be able to appear in the upcoming series due to him filming Red Dwarf in November.
Craig revealed: “I’m 2/1 favourite to win!” he told ITV’s This Morning. “No, I’m not going in.
“I’m filming Red Dwarf. We start filming Red Dwarf in November. We don’t finish until March. That’s the time they film the jungle.”
However he did give fans some hope of a return sometime in the future:
“I wanted to finish it, I wanted to give it a good go. You hit the ground with a sprint but you save a little sprint finish for the end. I was holding a lot of stuff back, then ‘doof’.”
