Nick Kyrgios has shared his honest and unfiltered thoughts about celebrities heading into the jungle.

The tennis champion was engaging with his fans during a Q&A on Instagram on Wednesday night, when one of his followers asked if he would ever consider appearing on the show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me out of Here!

Kyrgios shared his brutal response on the public platform, expressing his distaste for the Channel Ten reality show.

“No,” he responded. “People that go on that show tend to not be celebrities anyway, excuse to get money…”

“They take themselves a bit too seriously because they are known in Australia.”

While it’s clear Nick won’t compete on I’m A Celeb anytime soon, a number of other high-profile sports stars have appeared on the show across its nine seasons.

Fellow tennis star Bernard Tomic was a part of season four in 2018 and became the first contestant in the show’s history to withdraw, calling it quits after just three days in the jungle.

Several football players have also entered the jungle, including Barry Hall, Brendan Fevola, Dane Swan and Beau Ryan, as well as cricketers Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, Merv Hughes and Shane Warne, boxers Anthony Mundine and Danny Green, and Olympic swimmers Leisel Jones, Lisa Curry and Emily Seebohm.
