Josie Gibson is hoping the jungle turns out to be a TV set

The 38-year-old presenter will be taking part in this year's edition of the ITV1 jungle reality show when it returns to screens on Saturday (17.11.23) but admitted that she was most looking forward to being flown out business class and had hoped that the infamous outback wasn't the actually the real thing.

She told OK! Magazine: "I’m most excited about the flight. I can’t wait to fly business class. Apparently, it’s unlimited champagne, so I’m really excited about being a Champagne Annie for 21 hours. I’ve got a business class flight there and a business class flight back. I'm hoping it will be like a TV studio. But whenever I’ve spoken to people, they’re like, ‘Get that out of your head, it’s the actual jungle!’"

The 'This Morning' presenter - who has five-year-old son Reggie with former partner Terry - went on to add that her family are "worried" about how she will cope in the jungle as she revealed her tactic to make it through the Bushtucker Trials is to hum her way through them.

She said: "I’m crap with any creepy crawlies or spiders. Even the thought of it, urgh! It sounded like a good idea at the time, but then reality sets in and you think, ‘Wow, what have I done?!'

"You know that song, 'Everywhere?” I’ve got to have that song in my head when I’m doing the trials – that’s like a meditation for me. Hopefully it will get me through it.'

Josie will be joining former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, 59, Britney Spears' sister Jamie Lynn, 'First Dates' star Fred Sirieix, JLS singer Marvin Humes, and NTA Award-winning 'EastEnders' actress Danielle Harold, 31, on the show.

Meanwhile, food critic Grace Dent admitted she is "filled with dread" at the thought of surviving in the jungle as she joked that her ideal campmate would be the "practical" Queen Camilla and 'Hollyoaks' star Nick Pickard - who is the soap's longest-serving cast member - admitted that he is a "bit scared of the dark" but jumped at the "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity when it presented itself.

'Made in Chelsea' Sam Thompson star will also be heading into the jungle and has already vowed to do the "cooking and the cleaning" for his fellow campers, whilst YouTuber Nella Rose is determined to "keep the morale" high in the jungle.

'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' starts on ITV1 and ITVX on Sunday 19 November at 9pm.
