Tulisa Contostavlos has denied reports which suggest she pulled out of this year’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here days before she was due to fly to Australia.
According to the Daily Star, show sources claimed the singer had a last minute change of heart about appearing in the 16th series of the reality show because she has a fear of insects.
Tulisa’s rep said: “This story is complete lies. Tulisa never signed up for I’m a Celebrity this year. She never even had a meeting with the show this year.”
The Daily Star suggested that the former N-Dubz singer had been approached on multiple occasions about entering the famous jungle with an offer of £500,000 reportedly being put forward.
The site quoted the 28-year-old’s “epic bug phobia” as a potential reason for her alleged backing out and said Strictly Come Dancing’s Ola Jordan would take Tulisa’s place on I’m a Celebrity this year.
