FOUR years on and Carl Fogarty is still in disbelief.

The 52-year-old from Blackburn is still trying to get his head round the fact that he won the 14th series of I'm A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here.

"My first ambition was just to get to a vote-off," admitted the motor cycling legend, who won four World Superbike titles.

However, he finished ahead of The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins, actor, comedian and presenter Craig Charles, footballer Jimmy Bullard, model, TV personality and singer Nadia Forde, newsreader Michael Buerk, sitcom actress Vicki Michelle, model and reality TV star Kendra Wilkinson, rapper Tinchy Stryder, former politician and author Edwina Currie, TV presenter and model Melanie Sykes and X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden to be crowned King of the Jungle.

Collins bowed out after just three days, refusing to parachute into the jungle with her colleagues and then quitting, allegedly due to health issues.

Fogarty, who is appearing at the Six Acres at Tong on Friday, May 11, at 7pm on the second of a five-date national tour of The World According to Foggy, which is the title of his best-selling book, has little sympathy for those who go into 'I'm A Celebrity' claiming that they don't know what it is about.

"It is one of the biggest television shows in the UK, and if they claim that they know nothing about it then they are lying," said Fogarty, who has been known for his occasional blunt speaking.

The motor cycling ace, who has won 59 races at World Superbike level, lasted 23 days in the jungle and said that the biggest problem was not the lack of food or even the infamous bushtucker trials.

Fogarty, who in the final ate a large cupful of live mealworms (in three mouthfuls), as well as two fried tarantulas, three live cockroaches, ostrich anus and a camel's penis, said: "The biggest problem is the boredom after about four or five days, and you try and be as helpful as you can to hold it off, such as doing the food with Mel."

After such a life-changing experience, it would not be unusual for phone numbers to be swapped at the end of the series, but Fogarty revealed that he doesn't keep in touch with anyone apart from Bullard.

"People are just too busy living their own lives," admitted Fogarty.

Retiring from racing in 2000 after a serious racing accident in Phillip Island, Australia, Lytham St Annes-based Fogarty set up his own motor cycling team in 2002 – the Petronas FP1.

However, it was not a success, with Fogarty revealing that it came at the wrong time in his life.

If he was in charge of World Superbikes now, Fogarty admits that he would get rid of all the mechanical gadgets that help riders to perform and just strip the sport back to its basics, such as an engine, a throttle and some tyres.

Promoter Mick Speight, of MJK Sports Events, said: "We are proud to bring you an evening of entertainment with the undisputed king of Superbike racing Carl (Foggy) Fogarty.

"Starting from the beginning of his career, we take you all the way through to Carl’s retirement in the year 2000.

"We also take you through what Carl has achieved since retiring as a rider such as being a team owner and winning I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

"Carl’s new book, The World According to Foggy, which came out last month, is full of things that nobody knew about, other than himself and his family. It is a must read."

Tickets cost: £45, including a signed hardback copy of Foggy's book and a picture with Carl; £35, including a picture with Carl; and £25.
