The 'Good Morning Britain' presenter says he will head Down Under for the ITV programme if he is paid a huge sum, after co-hosts Ant and Dec said Piers keeps "wriggling out of" the series.

In response to a message saying it is about time he takes part in the show, the 'GMB' star tweeted: "Sure.. £5 million & I'll do it. (sic)"

Ant and Dec are keen to see Piers in the jungle.

Speaking at the Royal Television Society conference, Dec said: "Piers has said he would do it for a certain amount of money, which I think we could meet, but he keeps on wriggling out of it."

And Ant revealed further names on the pair's wish list, including former footballer Alan Shearer, who previously played for the pair's favourite club, Newcastle United.

He said: "We have a list that we get every year and we add to it and subtract from it.

"On our list at the moment, one person we are tracking down this year is Richard Madeley. Tim Westwood. I would like to see that. Alan Shearer, the list is endless."

While the line-up for this year's series is yet to be confirmed, several stars have been rumoured, including 'Coronation Street' star Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs).

He added fuel to the speculation recently when he shared a picture of himself on a hike and added the caption: "It's a jungle out there".

Last month, former England rugby player James Haskell - who is married to Chloe Madeley, the daughter of Richard and Judy Finnigan - was said to be in talks about appearing on the programme.

A source said: "Producers think James would be a great addition. They have made him a decent offer and are hopeful he will sign up.

"Being a top-class sportsman means he'll be full of stories of the dressing room and what goes on behind closed doors.

"They also hope he'll shed light on having Richard and Judy as his in-laws - and his friendship with Prince Harry."
