GOGGLEBOX stars Steph and Dom Parker turned down the chance to appear on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here due to their love of booze.

The posh pair also said they wouldn’t be able to stomach munching bugs in the show’s infamous Bushtucker Trials.

Dom told The Daily Star: “People asked us to do I’m A Celebrity, and our answer was ‘not a chance.’

“I could not even chat to a cockroach, let alone eat one.

“It isn’t going to happen. Anyway, we enjoy our creature comforts too much.”

Dom, who will appear with Steph this week in Celebrity Hunted for Stand Up To Cancer, could have followed in the footsteps of fellow ex-Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt who was crowned jungle queen last year.

Steph and Dom shot to fame on the Channel Four show where they became infamous for their boozing and banter.

But last October The Sun revealed how the dynamic duo has left the hit show indefinitely.

They told us: “We think it’s important that everyone gets their chance to be on Gogglebox and give their opinion, and having been on it from the beginning we felt like we’d pretty much said all we needed to say, and we knew what we were going say.”

Meanwhile, Boris Becker is among the celebs set to tackle the jungle on this year’s instalment of the ITV1 show.

A source close to Becker said: “As everyone now knows, Boris’s financial situation is desperate.

“He needs a way to make a lot of money fast, and has looked to I’m A Celebrity to help him do exactly that.

“His representatives are negotiating with ITV over his fee, and they are aiming to get him £500,000.
