Su Pollard spurns I'm a Celebrity invite

Su Pollard has spurned the opportunity to take part in 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'

Bosses of the popular ITV show had wanted the comedy actress - who is best known for playing Peggy Ollerenshaw in 1980s sitcom 'Hi-De-Hi' - to appear on the next series, but Su admits she is too scared to participate.

The 64-year-old star explained: ''It's a great show but I've had to say no. I hate creepy crawlies and spiders and snakes, and I just know that I'd be a screamer that everyone picks on.''

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''I couldn't eat giraffe balls. I couldn't do those trials.

''The campers would end up anorexic by the end of the show.''

Su's attention is currently firmly fixed on rehearsing for the role of Maid Marian in a new comedy based on Robin Hood, called 'Ha Ha Ha Hood and The Prince of Leaves', which is to debut in Chelmsford on August 19.

The next series of 'I'm a Celebrity' - the fourteenth in total - is to hit to screens later this year.

Last year's jungle competition was won by former Westlife singer Kian Egan.

Notable contestants included Joey Essex, Amy Willerton and David Emmanuel.
