He has since expressed his interest in appearing on the ITV dating show.

A post shared by CHARLES DRURY (@charlesdrury1) on

An ex-boyfriend of Katie Price, Charles Drury was rumoured to be heading to South Africa to star on the show.

A source told The Sun that the former builder would be a natural choice for the show given his romantic connection to Katie.

“Nothing’s signed yet and he’s not even sure if he wants to do it but they’re keen to meet him. Katie will be furious when she finds out – he’d have girls falling over him and he’s bound to talk about what dating Katie was like if he makes it into the villa.”

However, Charles has put the rumour to bed completely by recently going Instagram official with his girlfriend, only known as Lucy.
