Former South Derbyshire MP Edwina Currie is to enter the 'I'm A Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here' jungle.

The 68-year-old says she probably won't be seen as a motherly figure in the camp as it is "not her national reputation".

I will quite possibly tell them if they are annoying me. Or you can pull a face or a gesture. It really does depend what they are doing. I will only get cross with those who don’t try. If you sign up to do something like this show, then you have to do your best. If anyone is pulling a fast one or letting the side down, then they might get a tongue-lashing. On the other hand, if they are really upset, I hope I am sympathetic.
