Miriam Margolyes has taken a swipe at I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, saying she would never go into the jungle because she has ‘class’. The 82 year old Harry Potter actress, known for her outspoken ways and chaotic guest appearances on This Morning, opened up on how she had been offered big money deals to appear on the gruelling ITV show - as well as BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
But she said she had turned down both - deciding to rake in some extra cash by writing a book instead. Miriam, who landed a role on Doctor Who for this month’s 60th anniversary episodes, described the idea of her appearing on Strictly or I’m A Celeb as ‘f****** nuts’. She made the comments as she appeared on the podcast Dish from Waitrose, hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Angela Harnett, to discuss her book Oh Miriam!.
She said: “I only wrote it 'cause they offered me a lot of money.” Miriam then added: "That's true, that's absolutely true. Well, when you're old and you know that your earning potential is diminishing. "You've got to get the money while you can.
I won't do that, what do you call it? The dancing thing." Angela suggested Strictly and added: "They asked you to do that a few times?" Miriam replied: "Yeah, they must have been f****** nuts. And they asked me to go in the jungle." The actress then revealed she turned both down and took aim at I'm A Celebrity as she said: "I've got class, love. I'm not doing that." She added: "I thought, 'I'll write a book'." Her comments come as the stars for this year's I'm A Celebrity...
