Former I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here winner Kerry Katona has reportedly declined a chance to take part in an All Star series of the popular ITV show.

The ex-Atomic Kitten singer was crowned "Queen of the Jungle" back in 2004 but the 42-year-old decided she would not be able to fit the spin-off series into her hectic schedule.

It's been teased that the filming of the show clashes with a commitment she has made to feature in a different TV programme.

A source told The Sun: "Kerry met with ITV bosses to discuss the opportunity but made the difficult decision to pass on it.

"She is so grateful for her time in the jungle and loves the show, but couldn't make it work as she had already committed to another TV show."

A spokesperson for Kerry also confirmed: "Kerry did have meetings to take part in I'm A Celebrity All Stars but due to other filming commitments, she was unable to take part.

"Not being able to take part in the show will come as a blow for Kerry, as she said last year that she would love to do an all-stars version of the smash hit series."

Former contestants that are reportedly taking part in the new series include the likes of Carol Vorderman, Myleene Klass, Ashley Banjo, Paul Burrell, Dean Gaffney and Gillian McKeith, who will all be taking on bushtucker trials again as campmates.

It is believed that the celebs have now jetted off to South Africa to film the special 20-year anniversary show, with footage set to be aired next year.

Kerry told the Daily Star last year that she would be interested in a return to the show, saying: "I'll definitely go back in. I thought, 20-year anniversary, they might do an all stars with the king and queens."

She went on to joke: "I wouldn't want to lose my crown!"
