Jack Maynard says he wants to return to I’m A Celebrity to “prove himself”
The dropped I’m A Celebrity contestant last week said sorry for what he described as “disgraceful” behaviour.
The 22-year-old YouTube vlogger left the show just a few days into the series last month.
Speaking in his first TV appearance on ITV’s Lorraine today, Jack revealed he hoped to be given a second chance in the jungle.
While the current series has only a few days left now, maybe next year?
“I’ve definitely thought about whether I’d go back on,” Jack said. “Now that I’m out it’s definitely something that I’d love to go and do again and prove myself.”
He added: “I didn’t get the worst of it while I was in there, I didn’t get any really tough trials, I was attacked by a leaf which was pretty traumatising.”
After leaving the show, Jack said sorry for ‘offensive’ tweets as well as alleged inappropriate messages sent to a fan.
“There’s absolutely no excuse for what I said. I don’t know what I was thinking in ever posting anything like that online,” Jack told The Sun today. “I am truly, truly, truly sorry about all of the past comments I made.
“They’re totally unacceptable and I’m praying that people learn from this and don’t make the same mistakes that I did — really think about what you’re going to do and how many people it could hurt.”
Jack left the I’m A Celebrity camp after just two days on the show.
A spokesperson for the ‘social media sensation’ said at the time: “In the last few days Jack has been the subject of a succession of media stories which, given his position as a contestant on ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ – filmed in the Australian jungle, with no contact with the outside world, he has been unable to respond to.
“Since it is only fair that everyone should be aware of any allegations made against them and should also have the right to defend themselves, it was agreed that it would be better to bring him out of the show.
“Jack agrees with this decision which was made by his representatives and ITV and thanks everyone who has supported him in the show this far.”
I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here continues nightly at 9PM on ITV.
