Shane Warne has rejected a generous six-figure offer to star on the new reality show ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.’ The former Australian cricketer, 45, was wanted by the producers and Channel 10, and a source said though Warne was “tempted,” he decided against it, waiting to see how the first series of the show turned out, News.com.au reported.

The celebrities have been reportedly offered 60,000 dollars a week to appear on the show, but the player’s offer was way more than this.

The show, which is based on the popular UK hit series, and will be hosted by Julia Morris and Dr Chris Brown, has not commented on who would be the part of the show yet, but rumours say American actor Melissa Joan Hart, comedian Joel Creasey and another former Australian cricketer, Andrew Symonds, may be in it.
