Meet Kadeena Cox, MBE
She is a four time Paralympic gold champion and one of the British stars of this year’s Tokyo games but Kadeena Cox admits going on I’m A Celebrity will be mentally tougher than anything she has ever done before. "I am scared of spiders, I don’t like rats, I don’t like snakes, and I don’t like heights. But I am hoping the athlete in me will want to do it for the team and just get through that tough moment. I will scream afterwards!”
As for whether she will be going for gold in Wales to try and be crowned the new Queen of the Castle and it’s a resounding yes – but to inspire others. Explains Kadeena: “If I were to win I’m A Celebrity as a disabled person and show that I can overcome things, then I think that would be a great thing to show that people with all disabilities can do things”.
Phobias: "Snakes, rats, spiders, heights – everything!"
Role in the camp: "Chef - so long as there isn’t too much pressure to make the food interesting!"
Dream camper: "Thierry Henry – I love watching Arsenal play."
