Ally McCoist responds to I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here rumours: ‘My wife and kids won’t talk to me’


talkSPORT’s very own Ally McCoist is among the favourites to head into the jungle for this year’s edition of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Last year one of our regular guests, Harry Redknapp, won the hearts of the British people, but could we see another friend of the station named King of the Jungle?

Sadly not, McCoist has confirmed. The Rangers legend, understandably, doesn’t want to eat kangaroo testicles.

McCoist will NOT be heading into the jungle this year

McCoist will NOT be heading into the jungle this year

And now his family won’t talk to him.

He told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I’m not doing the jungle and now there’s nobody talking to me!

“My wife doesn’t give a monkeys about me eating spiders and earwigs, she just wants a two-stretch in that Versace hotel.

“And the boys aren’t talking to me. The older ones aren’t even talking to me!

“They’re going to school and they’re getting it off all of their pals.”

It’s too late for McCoist to change his mind now, but he promises to do it next year… if the price is right.

Brazil joked that he was offered £285,000 to go down under many moons ago, and McCoist wouldn’t mind a slice of that cake.

He said: “Finance isn’t that important to me but I can guarantee you if the figures were around that I would be on that British Airways flight right now.

“I would be swinging from the trees.”
