Speaking ahead of his debut in the Australian jungle with Ant and Dec, Jamie teased he had to take a “gamble” when deciding whether or not to sign up.

Jamie explained: “I was actually asked about this years ago but it wasn’t the right stage in my life.

“But it’s been a good year with work and I really did feel now was the right time to branch out. I have finished on Hollyoaks now. I had to make a decision – whether to sign or take the gamble. 

“The gamble was I wanted to do this. And I felt it came at the right time. And it has paid off because I am doing it.”

“Now it is getting closer, I am getting more nervous. It feels alien to me. I am quite a private person and for me to put myself out there is new.”

The soap actor added: “I can’t hide behind the cameras nor can I hide behind my character.”
