Mark Wright left the comfort of Essex for the creepy crawlies of the jungle and after 'I'm A Celebrity' it looks like he'll be moving location again: onto the dating market. omg! spoke to comedian Paddy McGuinness fresh from filming series three of hit dating programme 'Take Me Out' and grilled him on what single celebrity he'd like to see on the show:
"Mark Wright says he wants to come on, Chris Moyles is always telling me he'd do it but I'd like to see Peter Andre too!"
While the TOWIE star appears to be handling things in Australia pretty well, we wanted to know if Paddy thought the Essex boy would fare as well in the other show he fronts, '71 Degrees North'?
"The celebrities get a much easier ride on 'I'm A Celebrity' than '71 Degrees North'
"All that eating kangaroo willies and everything else in the bush tracker trials is nothing in comparison to being in temperatures of -35 degrees — it's extreme.
"Watching someone eating a cockroach on telly is terrible but you can imagine what that' s like. When it's freezing cold you don't get a sense of just how bad it is when you're sat indoors."
Easier it may be in the jungle, but omg! don't think anyone gets off lightly there. Paddy predicts the girls will head to the top spot of 'I'm A Celebrity'…
"I'd like Fatima to win at the moment she seems a really nice person but she's getting into it. Lorraine Chase is really nice as well. Across the series it changes but those two are my faves right now."
The presenter doesn't know of any plans for a celebrity version of 'Take Me Out' (sad face) but when the show returns to our screens we can expect a new set of surprises in the form of spin-off show, 'The Gossip' which will dish the dirt on all the behind-the-scenes goss.
"There's so much stuff I never hear about — such as other couples who weren't put together but meet on the show, I'm always the last to find out," Paddy added.
After a two year break from stand-up, Paddy's back and is bringing his eagerly-anticipated tour to DVD out now. Order a copy at: amazon.co.uk
