Adlington predicts 'competitive nature will come out'

Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Adlington has predicted that her "competitive nature will come out" when she is banished to a jungle as part of the ITV series I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Rebecca Adlington has been revealed as one of the contestants for the 2013 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!

Writing on her blog, the swimmer said: "When I was invited to take part in the show, I didn't have to think twice. I've watched the show most years and was addicted last year."

She also admitted she hates having "bugs, spiders and other creepy crawlies anywhere near" but hoped the show would provide an opportunity to talk about her SwimStars initiative.
