England football legend Michael Owen recently confirmed that he would turn down a stint on Strictly Come Dancing but that he is open to joining the I'm A Celeb jungle.

The former Liverpool FC player insisted that there was "no way" he would take part in the BBC ballroom dance programme.

However, the father of Love Island star Gemma Owen, revealed that he was open to taking part in I'm A Celeb... Get Me Out Of Here.

Speaking with The Daily Star, he said that he had learned a few "tips" from some of his famous friends who endured the gruelling experience.

Michael Owen says he 'ain't dancing for anyone' as he turns down Strictly Come Dancing stint

He said of an appearance on BBC show Strictly Come Dancing: "I ain't dancing for anyone. No way, no way! I wouldn't, I couldn't dance."

Adding: "I think I'm A Celebrity has parts of it that I think that would be good fun to do.

“Again it's just the time it takes, and I mean I've worked with a few of the people that have been on it, like Kieron Dyer and Harry Redknapp and people like that amongst others, other people on the show before.

"They've given me a few tips on what's good and what's bad and things like that and what they did like and what they didn't.

"But I don't know, I've sort of looked into it couple of years ago and it didn't work in my diary – but you never know in the future."
