Exclusive: Josie's 'so proud' of her jungle journey in I'm A Celebrity

She’s out! After leaving the I’m A Celebrity jungle on Saturday night, Josie joins us from the Gold Coast to reveal all about her time in the jungle!

After becoming the last women standing and being in the final four, Josie said: "I'm so proud of myself, I got even further than I thought I would. I did go in with a lot of phobias, ask Alison! She knows I'm scared of everything.

"When I first got there I was under the quilt and I thought, 'How am I gonna do this?'"

Whilst in the camp, Josie made several connections with her campmates and said: "You feel quite vulnerable and when you're vulnerable like that you connect with people quicker."

Dermot added: "You can take the girl out of This Morning but you can't take This Morning out of the girl", as she was often seen asking questions to her fellow campmates including former MP Nigel Farage and Britney Spears sister, actress Jamie Lynn Spears.

Setting the record straight on her friendship with Fred Sirieix after her cooking as head chef left him frustrated, she said: "I love Fred, we've had some really deep, meaningful conversations, he's a great guy. We had our little bit of a ding dong in the kitchen but I think it's a bit blown out of proportion."

Despite tackling the trials head on and getting stuck in with jungle life, Josie admitted she had a 'wobble', but the visit from her best friend Mia 'recharged her'.

Reflecting on the moment Mia surprised her in camp, she said: "She just connected a bit of her energy into me and I felt like me again. I felt recharged and I was back in there and I felt like I could do it because I did have a real big wobble the last two days, I was pining for Reg, I was missing him so much."

She added that since leaving the jungle: "I've cuddled Reggie like you wouldn't believe, it's so nice being reunited with him."

And being part of the final four meant Josie got to take on the infamous Celebrity Cyclone challenge alongside Sam Thompson, Tony Bellew and Nigel Farage!

Speaking about Nigel's lycra pants, she said: "Honestly, that day I didn't know where to look. It was like looking at your dad in saucy underwear! What sports to dress up in those little hot pants like that.

It was only the first few days that I was in there that I saw Farage's bottom and Fred's... baguette!"

Speaking about her time she said: "I've learnt how much I can actually endure. I'm proud of myself, I was the last woman standing and I'm proud of where I came in the competition."

We're proud of you too, Josie! We can't wait to see you very soon.
