The Vamps singer was on Good Morning Britain when he spoke out about the notorious Bushtucker trials.
James advised Matt to take on the gruesome I'm A Celebrity trials head on – even though they include eating kangaroo testicles.
He said: "Best advice, get yourself out there.
"I signed up to them straight away as I wanted to just throw myself in there.
"For me, boredom was a big thing."

James, who was a hit on the show in 2018, added: "So I stayed busy, doing tasks.
"So that's what I'd recommend to anyone – get stuck in there."
The Sun revealed Matt could be exempt from some of the trials on health reasons.
It came as Matt looked set to break an unwanted I'm A Celebrity record following his shock signing.
