Adlington admits feeling 'very insecure' about her looks

Olympic gold-medallist Rebecca Adlington has admitted she feels "very insecure" about her looks and faces pressure to look a certain way.

Adlington broke down in tears on last night's I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! when the camp discussed the subject of beauty.

Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, Adlington said, "We are made to think that being a size 12-14 like I am isn't attractive, that you have to have big hair and big boobs and all this ... and it makes you feel so c**p about yourself".
