The chimney pot
Former Coronation Street soap legend, Julie Goodyear, most notably remembered for playing brassy landlady Bet Lynch was offered a place on I’m A Celebrity – but turned it down. Some would hazard a guess that she didn’t fancy sleeping in a jungle, but the truth has been revealed. The compulsive smoker found out that she wouldn’t be able to smoke on the 23-hour plane journey over. The 75 year old is said to smoke 100 cigarettes a day and her addiction is so bad that she couldn’t contemplate such a trip without regular cigarette breaks. She did offer to go over by boat, but producers rejected the offer after learning it would take 40 days and a hefty budget.
