I’M A Celebrity star Gillian McKeith has revealed a scary moment that wasn’t shown on TV.
The 63-year-old TV presenter, who caused quite a stir in the jungle during her 2010 stint, revealed all about how roommates are transported to the proving ground.
Gillian admitted she felt like she had been “kidnapped” after being blindfolded in the back of a van.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Gillian said: “I was blindfolded once and taken into a van which was completely blacked out and I didn’t know where I was.
“I felt like I was kidnapped. It was pretty scary.”
Gillian, host of You Are What You Eat, was known for fainting during challenges during her time Down Under.
The star explained that the trip to the hiking area left her in a turbulent state.
“It’s really isolating going to these processes because nobody is talking to you and you don’t know what’s going on or where you’re going,” she continued.
“I was scared of everything, so I was constantly working my way up to different levels of weirdness in my body.”
Mum-of-two Gillian, who supports Mike Tindall in his success, told us: “I love Owen too, he’s so natural and handsome and kind.
“I think he’s the most real thing in camp. He’s just himself.”
Gillian then added: “I think Jill is great too and a contender for the win.”
Earlier in the week, Gillian was the first to claim that Matt Hancock had ‘fixed’ the camp.
She told us she believes the politician Matt is “manipulating” the other stars.
She said: “You get the feeling from him that he lacks confidence, but when it comes to politicians they are so smart, they are very good at weaving people into their web and describe themselves as extremely gracious, friendly and to appear caring.
“He’s demonstrating all these qualities on the show, so obviously he could be manipulating us, because isn’t that what politicians are like?”
Gillian didn’t hold back, adding: “It’s 100 per cent Matt Hancock’s show.
“I do not agree with sitting MPs leaving their jobs to do another job and leaving their constituency for which they are paid to work. That doesn’t make any sense to me at all.
“It’s completely wrong, I don’t understand why he doesn’t see that. You have to be completely deaf not to understand that, especially given where we’re from.”
But in a moment of reflection, she said: “Nevertheless, Matt Hancock comes across very well too, he’s so lovely, he’s like the guy you want to meet.
“He’s very skilled at it. I think if he doesn’t come out first then he has a chance to win.”
