While bandmate Harry Judd is strutting his stuff on the Strictly Come Dancing dancefloor, Dougie Poynter is heading to the jungle.

The McFly bassist has been confirmed for this year’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

However, unlike Harry who is showing off his buff bod, it sounds like Dougie will be keeping his shirt on.

“I don’t work out,” the 23-year-old told The Sun. “I should have done before I came here instead of eating my weight in peanut M&Ms.”

Dougie also revealed how he is preparing for the show.

“I watched a lot of Bear Grylls.” he said.

He also spoke about how he and Harry are doing reality shows at the same time.

“This is just a one-off thing. I think I’m looking forward to it,” Dougie said.

“Harry just told me to get stuck in and not be a d***. But I don’t think I can win.”

Fellow bandmate Danny Jones has previously taken part in Pop Star to Opera Star. Despite a one-off apearence on Deal or No Deal, Tom Fletcher is yet to take part in any celeb reality shows. Maybe we’ll see him Dancing On Ice next year?
