BBC star confirms she’s turned down I’m A Celebrity and reveals why she’ll never appear on show | The Sun

A BBC star has turned down I'm a Celebrity and revealed while she'll never do the show.

Historian Mary Beard, presenter of BBC series Civilisations, won't be taking part in the I'm a Celebrity bushtucker trials any time soon.

She is mum to grown-up children Zoe and Raphael and Mary has told how they've begged her not to sign up for the show.

Speaking to The Times, Mary said: "I had to discuss it with the kids, because they weren’t kids then, and they said ‘Don’t you dare do it, don’t you dare!’"

As well as her work on Civilisations and documentaries about the Romans, Mary is also Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge, a fellow of Newnham College, and Royal Academy of Arts Professor of Ancient Literature.

But although Mary has ruled out any bushtucker trials, someone who I'm a Celeb fans could be seeing when the show returns later this year is First Dates star Fred Sirieix.
