Revealing he is happy to be referred to as King or Queen of the Jungle if he triumphs in this year’s competition, Barrowman says he would love to be gender fluid when it comes to his title. “I would be over the moon if I won. I would be the King or Queen of the Jungle,” he declared.
Barrowman, 51, also reckons he’ll love taking on the Bushtucker Trials. “OMG I want to do the trials for sure,” he said. “I want people to vote for me. I want to keep myself busy.”
But the actor and entertainer is already worrying about facing his fear of confined spaces – particularly coffins.
“If they put me in a box like a coffin, I know I am going to have a problem,” he admitted, a statement which pretty much guarantees that producers will make him do a coffin challenge.
“I will have to really figure that one out when it happens as I know filming Torchwood, there was a scene where we filmed in a coffin. They put me in a coffin in a drawer and I couldn’t do it. It was see through and so I could see space but I couldn’t do it. I had a panic. That might be the challenge that is most fearful for me. But realistically, you know they are not going to do anything that hurts you.”
