Arsenal hero Ian Wright has told the producers of I’m A Celebrity that Manchester United icon Roy Keane would appear on the show if they gave out Starbars instead of stars after bushtucker trials. Wright appeared on I’m A Celebrity in 2019 but was the fifth person to be voted out of camp.

“I’m not just saying this, do you know why Roy would be brilliant in there is because people don’t realise Roy is actually cool,” Wright told ITV ahead of England’s World Cup showdown with Senegal. “They have to get Starbars instead of stars – he loves Starbars. He’d love it. I made friends for life – James Haskell, Nadine Coyle. I’ve made friends for life – he could do it.”

Wright entered the Australian jungle alongside the likes of Caitlyn Jenner, Kate Garraway and Roman Kemp. And he was tipped to do well in the show due to his charisma and cheeky personality. But the 59-year-old was criticised for his tense clashes with comedian Andrew Maxwell.

And he has since admitted that he would “take that time back” if he could. “To be totally honest, if I could take that time back I would,” he said. “They let me down by not showing the whole picture of who I am. We had so many brilliant in-depth conversations that were never shown.

“People sometimes see this persona of me where I don’t seem like I’m vulnerable but I’ve always been a person in touch with my emotions. I’m never far away from feeling like I could cry. I have very deep feelings that I’ve had to learn to deal with, but I still have my moments.”

Wright was discussing I’m A Celebrity after 2022 winner Jill Scott sent a good luck message to the England team ahead of their World Cup last 16 showdown with Senegal. Scott won 161 caps for England during her playing days and saw off the likes of Owen Warner, Matt Hancock and Mike Tindall to win the series.
