Age: 27 Phobias: Bugs, spiders, cockroaches – any creepy crawlies Biggest misconception you want to dispel in the Jungle: There are so many misconceptions I hope to dispel as I think everyone thinks I am a reality TV nitwit! Role in the camp: The shoulder to cry on and the person to lift everyone’s spirits when they are down Miss most: Cheese, wine, all my home comforts, friends/family Dream camper: Victoria Beckham – but I don’t think Posh will be going in! There again, stranger things have happened!
Bringing some North-East sass into the Jungle is reality star Vicky Pattison, who’s not just a Campmate but a long-term I’m A Celebrity superfan: “I am absolutely chomping at the bits to go in the jungle. I’ve wanted to do this for ages and I have been asking I’m A Celebrity bosses if I can go on the show for the last three years.” (Just FYI, Vic – the term is ‘champing at the bit’, not ‘chomping at the bits’, unless you’re specifically referring to chewing something unpleasant…)
“I want to test myself and see what I am capable of,” says Vicky. “I did a bungee jump last year and I remember thinking ‘I can’t do this’. But I did it and I am excited to walk away from this thinking I managed to do things that I didn’t dream were possible.”
Seems Vicky’s got the right attitude! Well, until she’s tested anyway: “Part of my personality is that I am quite feisty. I will try to be diplomatic but at the same time, I won’t suffer fools.” Foolish Campmates – you have been warned!
