Jack Maynard wants to go back into the "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" jungle next year.

The 23-year-old YouTube sensation was given the boot from the creepy-crawly show 72 hours after he entered the famous camp after it emerged that he had propositioned a 14-year-old girl, joked about rape, used a derogatory term and posted gay slurs online when he was a teenager.

But, now that he's apologised for his previous behaviour and cleared his name, he has admitted he'd jump at the chance to slip back into his jungle gear if he's asked to take part next year.

Speaking on "Lorraine" on Wednesday (06.12.17), he said: "I've definitely thought about if I'd ever go back in. When I was in the jungle, every morning I'd wake up and think: "How? Why am I here? How am I here? Why would anyone ever think about doing this twice?" But now that I'm out it's definitely something that I'd love to go and do again and kind of prove myself. I didn't get the worst of it while I was in there, I didn't get any tough trials."

Jack has revealed he had deleted the disgusting tweets - in which he used the N-word and f***** during an online spat - before he went into the jungle so was shocked when he found out that someone had managed to get hold of them and publish them.

He explained: "I knew I had done some stupid things in the past on social media but I deleted them around a year before I went into the jungle but there's always a chance. They were obviously print-screened a long time ago... I was just being young, stupid, inconsiderate. I wasn't kind of thinking about the weight of those words, what they carried, who I could hurt. I was just retaliating in quite a horrible way. I wish I'd just taken a step back and thought about it...

"I didn't get into too much trouble because my mum knew I was a pain when I was 16 and she knows full well that doesn't represent me now and I'm nothing like that so she was quite upset with how it all happened and how it ended up with me being removed from the jungle. They [his family] were very supportive and helped me get through it."

Jack's exit came off the back of a girl claiming he had asked her to send him nude pictures when he was 16 and she was 14 - but he is adamant he didn't know her age.
