Ex-EAST 17 hunk Brian Harvey has been permitted to appear on a British reality TV show by psychologists, who feared his chronic depression would increase on the stressful programme.

The 30-year-old singer underwent a series of rigorous tests before he was given the go-ahead to appear on I'm a celebrity...GET ME OUT OF HERE, alongside model Sophie Anderton, Diana Princess Of Wales' former butler Paul Burrell and possibly Harvey's pin-up girlfriend EMMA B.

An insider says, "Let's face it. Brian has been through enough tough times to cope with a stint in the jungle."

Olympic ice-skating duo Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean and nineties pop hunk Chesney Hawkes are also rumoured to star in the series, which sees celebrities undergoing gruesome challenges in a real jungle.
