I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star Giovanna Fletcher has revealed she once filmed scenes on The Only Way is Essex, when her brother Mario Falcone starred on the show.
Giovanna talked about how she once agreed to appear in TOWIE – but didn't make the cut.
She told her campmates: "They talked me into being part of the scene, they really had to talk me into it.
"It was a massive thing for me to say I'll do it, and then I got cut!"
Giovanna said it took a lot of persuading to get her on the show in the first place

"I've done stuff in the past when I thought, hey, I'm in this movie, and I've watched it and I'm not in it and they've cut me."
He continued: "I got turned down this year by Mr Tumble!" and Giovanna gasped.
Shane went on: "So, we're all out of work, my manager rings up and says, 'I've put you up for this part, they're making this movie before they go into lockdown and they want you to play a cheeky copper'.
Shane said he had shot films before and then watched the film and realised he'd been cut
"No, not wanted, he didn't even get back to me.
"I've starred with Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet on Flushed Away, and I'm thinking I'm ready for Mr Tumble, and no.
"Even Mr Tumble didn't want to work with me!"
"His loss!" Jessica Plummer comforted Shane.
In the Bush Telegraph, Giovanna said" "Sometimes you're just not wanted, and that's ok.
"You sort of keep riding the wave, sometimes TOWIE doesn't want you.
"Sometimes Mr Tumble doesn't want you, but someone will."
