Larry has little Lamb for jungle
LARRY Lamb is trying to convince son George to sign up to enter the TV jungle.
Millions of viewers saw the Gavin and Stacey star, inset, taking part in last year’s series.
Presenter George, inset, is now considering following in the footsteps of his dad.
He said: “It’s not something I had ever thought of doing. But dad is encouraging me to do it now. He had an amazing experience in there.
“You never know how these things are really going to affect people.
“He’s in his 70s which means he’s physically on the decline and that affects your confidence. But he came back from the jungle and he was a foot taller and full of life.
“He’d gone out and done all these things and pushed himself and taken himself out of his comfort zone and had been a bit of a hero.
“It had been a long time since he’d challenged himself like that. It was lovely to see – he was totally reinvigorated.”
Bosses are trying to complete this year’s line-up ahead of the launch in November.
Ant & Dec have confirmed they will be back as hosts, while former Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt is reportedly the new presenter of spin-off show Extra Camp. SALLY Lindsay reckons the cast would jump at the chance to get back together.
In a shock move, Sky axed Mount Pleasant earlier this year after seven series.
Its stars weren’t given any explanation for the decision but TV favourite Sally is hopeful it will make a comeback some day.
She said: “We’d all be there like a shot – we’d be like Avengers Assemble.
“It was the best time of our lives. We had seven amazing years.”
