Irish pop star Kian Egan fell victim to London's morning rush hour traffic on Thursday (12Dec13) when he failed to arrive in time for a radio interview.

The former Westlife singer was due to appear on British station Heart Fm to discuss his time in the Australian jungle after winning reality Tv show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on Sunday (08Dec13), but he missed the early morning slot after getting held up.

The determined star even leaped from his car and attempted to use the London Underground instead, but he still failed to get to the studio in time.

In a series of posts on his page, he writes, "Traffic was so bad this morning I had to get out of the car and jump on the tube... Man it's busy this time of the morning!... So even after jumping on the tube I still missed my interview at heart (sic) radio. I will be on there tomorrow morning now. Sorry guys."
