Speaking ahead of the show she said: “The daunting thing for me is the mixture of everything – you are starving, not sleeping very well and trying to cope with the boredom.
“Normally with an athlete, you can prepare for everything. You can’t control the race but you can train to the best of your ability.
“The jungle is a lot tougher because you have no clue how to handle it and you don’t know who the other people are. Nobody has ever lived in a jungle and done all the trials before and so at least we are on a level playing field in that sense!”
