Bosses offered the Aussie singer a cool 250,000 pounds to return to the jungle after he had rejected their deal earlier in the year.
They were almost sure that the Insania hitmaker – who met and fell for now ex wife Jordan on the show – would make a comeback and even roped in two hot celebs hoping that the now divorced Andre would enjoy new romance.
However, a pal revealed that Andre would not feature in the new series. “Pete will be watching the show," he said. “But he"ll be at home. He sees returning as a backward step," the Daily Star quoted the friend, as saying.
An ITV rep said: “We never comment on the jungle line-up ahead of transmission."
