Biggins Could Get His Own Showby Contributor | 05 December 2007
I'M A CELEBRITY winner CHRISTOPHER BIGGINS could soon be hosting a teatime TV show.
ITV wants the panto star to host a chat show which could rival the success of PAUL O'GRADY's Channel Four show.
An ITV insider said: "He is an absolute natural for the cosy world of daytime TV.
"He proved what a great listener he was in the camp."
They added that because he is so "genuinely likeable" Biggins has the opportunity to tease some big revelations out of guests.
Before becoming king of the jungle Christopher worked as an actor and director while making regular appearances as a pantomime dame.
Upon leaving Australia he told the Mirror that he had high hopes of getting his own show.
He said: "I would very much like to have my own series. And I would like to think I have shown those in high positions in television and in the industry there is more to Christopher Biggins other than just a pantomime dame."
The jungle king added that he had anted to show people another side of himself on the show.
"I think I have proved that - even if it was by eating kangaroo b******s!" he continued.
Biggins beat former supermodel JANICE DICKINSON and popstar J BROWN in the celebrity reality show.
Since leaving the jungle the celebrities have been reunited on a reunion show which was shown on ITV1 last night.
Ex-footballer RODNEY MARSH made up with PR guru LYNNE FRANKS by apologising to her for not saying goodbye when she left the jungle.
Meanwhile, MARC BANNERMAN's ex-girlfriend SARAH MATRAVERS has hit out at his jungle buddy CERYS MATTHEWS saying: "I hope you rot in hell".
According to Now magazine, the actress thinks Cerys should take responsibility for the pain she has caused.
