Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane reveals that he turned down the chance to take part in ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has revealed that he turned down an offer to head to the Australian jungle for ITV reality show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here.

The Irishman currently works as assistant manager at Aston Villa and with the Republic of Ireland national team, but has admitted that he is "more open" to involving himself in ventures outside of football.

In an interview with ShortList.com, Keane said: "I've had the Celebrity Big Brother offers and the jungle stuff.

"I met the jungle people, but I thought, 'nah, not for me'. But the more you say no, the more determined they are to get you, so who knows? There's more to life than football."

Keane recently released a new autobiography titled The Second Half.
