Norwich City director Delia Smith will not be entering the Australian jungle, despite rumours to the contrary.

Reports have claimed the celebrity chef was to spend several weeks feasting on bugs and sleeping rough on the popular reality show I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!

However, Delia's agent Debbie Owen has dismissed the rumours linking the Canaries' majority shareholder with the latest series of the show, due to air next month, as absolutely wrong. She said: “I don't know who's running this but it's so funny. She gets approached all the time to do things like Celebrity Big Brother.

“I cannot remember if they (the producers of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!) approached her, but it's just not her in anyway. It's not the sort of thing she would ever consider doing.”
