Paralympian Kadeena Cox has described her I'm A Celebrity journey as a "whirlwind" that's taught her a lot about herself.

The 30-year-old gold medalist from Leeds became the second campmate to leave the castle last night (6 December), after Arlene Philips was voted out the previous night.

Despite admitting she was "scared of everything" upon entering the show, Kadeena said she "tested her boundaries" by taking on several trials.

As she's living with multiple sclerosis (MS), she also wanted to set an example to others with chronic conditions that anything is possible, and you don't have to be defined by it.

In her exit interview, she also revealed she's backing presenter Louise Minchin to win after striking up a friendship with her and the rest of the girls.

After returning to ITV at the end of November, the programme was forced to take a three-day break after the set was damaged by Storm Arwen.

It was the first time it had been cancelled in 19 years, and meant the contestants had to leave while repairs took place.
