Pop star Peter Andre has reportedly quit a role working for ITV's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! after finding out that his ex-wife, glamour model Katie Price, was one of the contestants.
The singer was due to travel to Australia for three weeks as a behind-the-scenes correspondent for 'This Morning'.
But, The Daily Mirror alleged that after discovering his ex-wife Price (also known as Jordan) was heading for the jungle, he told studio bosses it would be "totally improper" for him to carry on.
Andre quit as the new line-up of celebrities was announced. While Price was not on the list, she is expected to arrive in the jungle as a late entry, despite reportedly earning more than any of the other contestants.
A source said: "Pete was really looking forward to going back to the jungle but as soon as he found out that Katie was going to appear, he said there was no chance in hell he would go.
"Pete reckons there's no way he could speculate on Katie's antics and any outback flirtations in an unbiased way. This Morning executives are livid."
The singer, who met Price on I'm a Celeb and later married her, will instead use the time to promote his recent album.
I'm A Celebrity starts on Sunday night on ITV.
