I’m A Celebrity 2012: Ashley Roberts wants a TV career in the UK, maybe as a judge on X Factor!

by Lynn Rowlands

As fans of I’m A Celebrity will know, former Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts ended the show in second place after her fellow finalist Charlie Brooks won the Queen of the Jungle crown…

But it seems that Ashley has been so overwhelmed at how the British public have taken her to their hearts – she was a 40-1 rank outsider to win the show when it began – that she’s now planning a move to the UK, where she hopes she might land a role on X Factor as a judge.

Her friend Bobby Newberry – who was in Australia last night with Ashley – told the Mirror, “Ashley would love to move to the UK and make a career there, and I think that’ll be her next move.

“She’s on a path …she would love to do television presenting…

“She just missed out on a job at the X Factor USA, hosting the show and I know she was very keen to do that.

“If she got the opportunity to work on the UK show, she would do that in a heartbeat.

“The UK loves her and they want more of her, so this isn’t the end of her on television screens in the UK.

“She’s a hugely talented person. Music has always been her passion and she actually has a new track out now. But she could easily turn her hand to presenting.

“She has told me she would love to do acting as well. Ashley’s a free spirit and she would go wherever she needed to go.”

However, she might have another reason to stay in the UK as it’s been reported that she’s keen to date I’m A Celeb co-host Declan Donnelly.

And he already has two attributes that Ashley’s keen on; a sense of humour and a British accent!

She recently said, “I’m a single lady and I like good-looking, fun men. I don’t think I have a specific type. I like confident guys with a sense of humour. I like all that good stuff.

“And British accents are always a winner.”

He’ll be so pleased…

Here’s a reminder of the show last night…
