Tulisa DENIES dropping out of I’m a Celeb… last minute over bug fear

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.

However a rep for the former X Factor judge has since told The Mirror that Tulisa couldn’t have dropped out of the series because she had never agreed to take part to begin with.

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.
