'Back in 2002, I was doing a story with Steve and after four hours of working together, he goes, "Mate, you're incurable... you and the snake are never going to be friends",' said Tom. 

However, the former Great Outdoors presenter used Steve's words as motivation to continue saying 'yes' to adventures and pushing himself with his career. 

Tom, who won Dancing With The Stars in 2005, is the third star confirmed for the new season of I'm A Celebrity, ahead of the show's premiere on Sunday night.
