The 38-year-old presenter found fame when he took part in the tough reality TV show in 2001, and he is looking forward to making a return to Fiji in very different circumstances in two years time.

He said: "When I went on 'Shipwrecked' in 2001, we stayed on an island called Yaukuve in Fiji. It's such a beautiful place.

"It turns out that it's now a six-star resort called Kokomo Yaukuve. I think I'll do it for my 40th birthday."

Jeff admitted his experiences on the show - in which he and 15 others stayed on the tropical island without any luxuries - mean he is always furious when watching 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' and the campmates start complaining about their meagre rations and limited food selection.

He said: "I lived off yams for seven weeks when I was on 'Shipwrecked'. We had to find them, clean them, and cook them.

"When I got to the final, we were given rice, which felt like the biggest luxury. When I see people complaining about rice on 'I'm A Celebrity...', it always makes me angry."

Jeff loves going on holiday with his sons Bobby, 14, and 13-year-old Freddy - whose mother was his late former partner Jade Goody - and will particularly treasure the most recent trip they undertook together.

He told Heat magazine: "The last holiday I had was to San Francisco with my boys, which was one of the most special trips we've ever had.

"We didn't pre-plan it. The only thing I booked was a trip to Alcatraz, but we also did the Golden Gate Bridge and Yosemite National Park for the day - it was like the Lake District times 100."
