Sam Thompson has long been one of our favourite Made In Chelsea castmates. Charismatic, energetic and seriously funny - it's no wonder he's working on a presenting career outside of Chelsea. And speaking to Grazia after last night's MIC, Sam revealed he has his sights set on taking Ant and Dec's spot hosting I'm A Celeb - and he wants to bring his best mate, TOWIE's Pete 'the pirate' Wicks, with him.

Sam{ =nofollow}explained that presenting wasn't always his game plan when he first joined MIC, but, after hitting our screens, he soon realised he wanted to stay in the entertainment industry. 'I was the luckiest guy in the world to fall into a job that I love,' he said. 'I know everyone’s like “job, what?” but I didn't realise that this was an industry. I just signed up to MIC and that was it. I was 20 and I thought I'm just going to have fun, chill with my mates, party - and that’s great. And then I realised there was an industry behind it.'

The reality star, who has already hosted celebrity interviews for BUILD LDN, added, 'I love speaking to people, I love getting to know people, and hosting and presenting is my absolute dream in life.'

When asked which TV job he has his sights set on, Sam replied, 'I know what I would love to do more than anything in the world but it's just never going to happen. If I ever could, I would love for myself and Pete to host something like Love Island or the jungle and take Ant and Dec’s spot. They are powerhouses - and who am I, some reality person - but I love working with Pete, and i love hosting things together.'
