Fogarty in 'I'm a celebrity…' 2015

Motorcycling champion Carl Fogarty will be appearing in this year's I'm a celebrity…get me out of here!

The reality television show sees celebrities put in the Australian jungle and taking on various challenges to earn prizes such as food. 

On the ITV website, Carl reveals: “I am not a people person. I like my own company and I like my own space. Hunger is what I’m dreading most. If I haven’t got food, I will get bored. It’s been a while since I had a challenge and I wanted to see if I could stick at it without walking out. There is a big part of me that is saying ‘you can’t do that’, but I am definitely at a stage in my life where I want to give it a go.”

Carl is the first motorcyclist to go on the show, which should garner much more media attention for the sport. However, he has received criticism online from motorcyclists who feel he is 'scraping the barrel' with this move. What do you think?

The show starts on Sunday 16 November at 9pm on ITV and runs for 15 nights.
