The singer even discussed the prospect of heading to Wales for the show after rumours of his appearance started swirling. He coyly told HELLO!: "I was linked with playing James Bond back in 2002 and that never happened – but watch this space…" he said. "I am quite enjoying all the attention though."

Russell and Louise's HELLO! Exclusive home shoot is out now

Louise added: "I think he'd be amazing at it. Russell's profession is very serious but doing I'm a Celebrity... would let him showcase his funny side."

Russell, who is dad to daughters Rebecca, 26, and Hannah, 20, from his first marriage, said of their bond: "They're still very protective over me, which is sweet. I was always this six-foot invincible figure in their mind, but when I got poorly the roles were almost switched… I'm so proud of them both."
