Jake of the Jungle!?

Could we see EastEnders’ Max Branning in ITV show, “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” this Autumn?

As previously announced, Jake Wood is taking a year-long break from his role as Max Branning. With no plans confirmed for what to do during his year off, Radio Times went digging!

With Strictly Come Dancing already under his belt, he said, “I do really like that show [I’m A Celeb]. Everyone I’ve spoken to who’s done it has said they really enjoyed it.

“I’m not squeamish, so eating strange stuff wouldn’t bother me.”

“It would be a good holiday for the family as well, wouldn’t it? And the money would be nice. But I think the main appeal is that it’s a different kind of experience.”

Max’s temporary exit scenes will air in the coming weeks, and perhaps we’ll see Jake Wood back on our screens this November.
