All About Giovanna Fletcher
As a longtime fan of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! author and podcaster Giovanna Fletcher has even invented Trials at home with her family. "Years ago we started doing a runner bean challenge. We pretend we’re doing an eating Trial but actually we’re eating our vegetables really fast. It’s part of the family dynamic and I can’t wait to do this," she says.
"As soon as I got the call asking if I would take part, it was a no brainer for me as I’m such a fan."
The mum of three, who is married to Tom Fletcher from McFly, reveals that her stint in Camp will be the longest she’s been away from her family. "Tom isn’t jealous. Out of the two of us I’m the one that gets the spiders out of the house! He is very proud and excited," she says.
Does Gi feel any pressure from her social media following, having amassed over 1 million followers on Instagram? "They’re going to be surprised, amazingly supportive and I think they will really enjoy it," she tells us, and adds: "I think as a mum, you struggle with the idea to have a minute to yourself and this is quite a big thing I’m taking on!"
Tom’s McFly bandmate Dougie Poynter won the show back in 2011. So has he given the 35-year-old any wisdom when it comes to taking the Crown? "He doesn’t think I’m bonkers going in as he knows how much I love doing things like this," she says.
"Being Queen would be an absolute joy. But I haven’t thought that far ahead. Just doing the show is incredible because I’m such a massive fan."
