"I regret it": Grant Denyer recalls time he rejected Pamela Anderson

"I regret it": Grant Denyer recalls time he rejected Pamela Anderson

In an alternate universe, Grant Denyer and Pamela Anderson could have been a couple.

On Tuesday night's episode of I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here, Denyer revealed he was asked out by the Baywatch star while she was in Australia promoting M&M's.

Anderson reportedly made a quick trip to Melbourne to relaunch green M&M's and test a theory that the green chocolate is an aphrodisiac.

Denyer seemed to become a part of the experiment, with the TV host sharing that he was invited to party with the star.

Grant opened up about the missed opportunity during a game of "truth or lie".

Denyer began: “Pamela Anderson wanted to date me,” to the unconvinced crowd.

“She was out doing a promotional tour for M&M’s. I was nervous as hell, really shy … Very turned on,” he joked.

“And she was like ‘You’re cute, do you want to come to a party with me?’”

Looking slightly crestfallen, he continued to reveal he turned her down as he had to catch a flight back home to Sydney that night.

“I said no … Because I had to fly home.”

His tale prompted roars of “LIAR” from the other celebs, who couldn’t believe he’d reject (or perhaps receive) such an offer from Pamela Anderson of all people.

“No one believed that this honey pot here could lure in a bee like Pamela Anderson,” Denyer told the camera elsewhere.

“Not a notch on my belt, but it’s a scar on my memory,” he added with a laugh, telling the stars “I regret it to this day.”
