ALLY McCoist has revealed his wife and kids are not talking to him after he turned down the chance to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

McCoist’s wife Vivien and his five boys, Alexander, Argyll, Mitchell, Arran and Harris, were desperate for him to appear as they are huge fans of the reality series.

However, the 57-year-old said he would not be a contestant on the programme which was won by football boss Harry Redknapp last year.

McCoist said he thought it was “too late” to change his mind now but vowed to take part if he is asked again next year.

He said: “I’m not doing the jungle and there is nobody talking to me. My wife is not giving a monkey’s about me eating spiders and earwigs, she is just wanting a two stretch in that Versace hotel.

“The kids aren’t talking to me at all. The older ones aren’t even talking to me.

“The younger ones would love it and the older ones would love it as well. They are going to school and they are getting it off their pals.

“It’s the biggest thing we watch as a family, it’s brilliant entertainment. Harry was fantastic last year.

“It’s too late now but I’ll do it next year.”

Appearing on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on Talksport, McCoist joked that if he had been offered £285,000 he would be on the first plane Down Under.

He said: “Finance isn’t that important to me but I can guarantee you if the figures were around that I would be on that British Airways flight the now. I would be swinging from the trees.”

Last week, bookmakers Boyle Sports slashed the odds on the Rangers record goalscorer entering the jungle from 10/1 to 5/1.

Other Scots who have been tipped to enter the show include former Scots Tory leader Ruth Davidson, singer Susan Boyle and Love Island’s Laura Anderson.

We told earlier how Ally McCoist reckons Jamie Vardy’s Leicester team-mates will torment him about wife Becky’s explosive row with Coleen Rooney.

Former Scotland star Alan Brazil – McCoist’s talkSPORT breakfast show sidekick – joked he would feign injury to avoid going into the Foxes dressing room.

We told today how WAG Becky wept down the phone to Wayne Rooney’s wife after being accused of leaking stories about her.

Asked if Jamie would be teased by Brendan Rodgers’ squad, Gers idol Coisty said: “I think he probably will…there’s an element of truth to that.
