Danny Baker set 'to quit broadcasting'

Danny Baker has revealed his appearance on the current series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! will be his last on British television, the presenter has joined the current series ITV reality show at a late stage and will enter the jungle on Thursday.

 

He said: "I have been doing telly for 40 years, I'm 60 next year and I've got no ambition to be on telly anymore. The only show I've ever wanted to do is this. It's like being asked to do a West End musical. This is, in modern TV, as good as it gets. They fly you around the world, put you in a hotel with a beach, then you play games in the jungle. Next summer I am even thinking about living in America. So when this came around, rather than disappearing quietly, I thought 'why not do one last big television programme?' I just don't want to do any more telly or radio or anything else after June, when I'm 60. But I may as well write, that's easy to do sitting on the edge of the ocean."

 

59-year-old Baker who was diagnosed with cancer of the throat and mouth in 2010 but was given the all-clear the following year, he is now considering moving away from the UK once he turns 60. Baker has released two autobiographies and plans to publish a third in February.
