SCARLETTE Douglas has spoken out after she became the second camp mate to be voted off ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’
The 35-year-old presenter had been taking part in the ITV1 reality survival show but on Sunday’s episode, the public decided that she would become the second famous face to leave the Australian Jungle following the eviction of ‘Loose Women’ anchor Charlene White and was seen tearfully hugging her campmates as she said her goodbyes.
Following the announcement made by Ant and Dec, she said: “I’m absolutely gutted. I’m not even gonna lie about it but I wanted to stay as long as possible. Those people are amazing and the jungle is incredible!”
Reflecting on her jungle journey over a glass of champagne, the former ‘A Place in the Sun’ host – who got to enjoy a VIP experience alongside Boy George upon entering the jungle and later took on the role of camp chef – told Politicalite that she is a “team player” and she would like ‘Celebrity Gogglebox’ star Babatúndé Aléshé to be crowned King of the Jungle.
She said: “Other than BG’s snoring, [the VIP experience] was fantastic. I really enjoyed it and I felt like that was me straight in. I was a bit of a screamer! When you don’t know what was in there but then I thought ‘This is the first trial, you just need to get a grip’. There was a point when there was a spider in the RV and I was gone, I was screaming. But there was another one and I was helping Mike [Tindall] get it out!”
“I’m a team player and I love getting stuck in. My mum is Jamaican, obviously, and Charlene is a Jamaican mum as well we know what we’re doing, we’re just like ‘Stay out of my kitchen!’ It does get difficult, though – especially when people don’t really know how to cook! I miss them already. It’s so tough but me and Baba had a really brother/sister bond so he’s got to do it for the two of us now!”
