Carol Vorderman says I'm A Celeb All Stars is 'brutal'
Carol Vorderman travelled to South Africa for the upcoming I’m A Celebrity All Stars series. The former Countdown star was the fifth contestant to be eliminated in the 2016 series and is now returning alongside her ex-campmate Jordan Banjo as well as the likes of Phil Tufnell and Helen Flanagan.
Discussing the highly anticipated show, Carol revealed that she first travelled to South Africa to work at an engineering construction site at the age of 19.
While she was there, Carol “fell in love” for the first time with her boss.
She explained: “His next job was in Botswana and I flew over. There were giraffes running around and I swam with great white sharks.
“I’ve not been on a safari for 40 years and I can’t wait now to do the (Bushtucker) trials. I will try everything and I will try my absolute best.”
The age-defying star also said that the show made her realise that “you need to live in the now”.
Diversity star Jordan Banjo said the reason behind the show being so enjoyable is that celebrities are “stripped back”.
He added: “Look at Carol Vorderman for example. She is beautiful but to see her drinking a smoothie made from a random animal’s genitals isn’t what you expect to see.”
Banjo added that he is “going to miss” his wife and two children “like crazy” and that doing the show made him realise “how super lucky I am to get to spend so much time with my family”.

He added: “You have a lot of time to think in the camp and it made me very grateful.”
Former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, Olympic athlete Fatima Whitbread, supermodel Janice Dickinson, former royal butler Paul Burrell, former England cricketer Phil Tufnell and the Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder will complete the line-up.
Unlike the original format, the first I’m A Celebrity Legend will not feature a public vote. Instead the celebrities will be competing against one another to be crowned the legend.
Burrell said he wants to be there for “all the dads who are struggling with their sexuality” in the wake of marrying Graham Cooper after being a runner-up on the 2004 series.
He said: “It is going to be different because I am a different person now. I was a married guy with two kids and now 19 years on, I am a married man again but this time around, I have a husband.”
Burrell also said he had the same phobias as his previous stint including “deep water”, which he says fills him with “dread”.
He added: “It would be ridiculous to think I could win this. I am only here to have a good time, to entertain people and to make everyone laugh.”
I’m A Celebrity… South Africa is set to air on ITV1 and ITVX at 9pm on April 24.
