Khan hasn't fought in 18 months, with his most recent outing coming against Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and ending with one of the most brutal knockouts in recent history.

The 31-year-old came in for some criticism for his decision to take part in a reality show rather than concentrate on a training camp, with several critics suggesting that his stint on I'm a Celeb was tantamount to an early retirement.

However Khan has no intention to hang up his gloves and he has revealed when and where he intends to compete next.

"I am going to fight in March, I was training in the jungle every day it and I’m glad I went. It was a detox,"Khan said, via BoxingScene.com. "I came back and I was in shape.

"I want to fight in the UK, I think it is time."

Khan recently kick-started his war of words with Manny Pacquiao as he mocked Jeff Horn's most recent title defence over Gary Corcoran.

Negotiations had taken place for Pacquiao to fight Khan in April but the Filipino fighter went in a different direction.

And while 'King' is now looking at getting back to winning ways in the ring, he's getting more questions about I'm a Celeb than anything nowadays.

The Athens 2004 bronze medallist admitted that his experience in the jungle came as a massive surprise to him.

"I just thought it was my close family and a small meal. I didn't expect the whole jungle theme and so many people," Khan said.

"The whole place looks like the jungle, with the critters and snakes.

"The only thing I was scared of was snakes and spiders. I got used to the spiders because I have seen a lot of them and while I was in the jungle I saw so many snakes go past me. Some of the trials had snakes involved."
