All about: Adele Roberts
Radio presenter Adele says her phobia of spiders is so bad that she has to have cedar blocks around her house to prevent them from daring to enter. “I’ve only camped once and that was the worst night of my life,” she reveals. “I hate spiders. If I see one, I can’t speak, I freeze and I do this weird thing where I wring my hands together!”
Incredibly excited to be fulfilling a lifelong ambition to enter the Jungle, Adele is the first Celebrity to view the Jungle as a chance to have a lie in. Sleep deprivation, she explains, won’t be an issue given she’s spent the last four years getting up at 2am to host her early morning show on Radio 1.
“My show’s on so early, we have to make our own fun, so I’ve got some games we can play if I feel like we’re getting bored.”
As a very non-confrontational person, Adele is predicting she’ll burst into tears at some point. “I get emotional when I don’t have food,” she reveals. “There will be some tears! But I’m hoping to learn lots about myself when I’m in the Jungle.”
Adele also promises if she gets crowned ‘Queen of the Jungle’, she’ll walk around with the winning crown forever more. “Wow if that happened, I would never let the stick go,” she adds. “I will carry on wearing the hat for the rest of my life!”
