Carol Vorderman is a princess and she'll have a jungle meltdown, says Vicky Pattison

Updated: 

Vicky Pattison has said Carol Vorderman is a bit of a "princess" and that she is "really worried" about her going into the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

The reigning jungle queen, who will host companion programme I'm A Celebrity: Extra Camp, also described TV star Carol as "very particular" and hinted that she may be headed for a "meltdown".

Carol, 55, is one of 10 stars going into the Australian-based camp for the ITV reality show, which begins on Sunday night.

Vicky said: "I'm really worried about her. We had her on (dating game show) It's Not Me, It's You and she was saying how she liked her life the way she liked it - she seemed very particular.

"She lives with her mum and her mum looks after her. I thought she's a princess on a panel show - what will she be like in the jungle?"

Vicky added, according to the Daily Mirror: "I think she'll really, really struggle and I think we'll see a meltdown if she goes in. It would be great TV."

However, last year's jungle champ does have high hopes for Carol's sex appeal, as she added that the "sexy lady" will be "brilliant in the shower".

Carol has previously admitted that she is up for a challenge and ready to be pushed out of her "comfort zone" and that she is looking forward to jumping out of the helicopter and into camp.

The former Countdown star will join Larry Lamb, Sam Quek, Scarlett Moffatt, Adam Thomas, Wayne Bridge, Joel Dommett, Jordan Banjo, Ola Jordan and Lisa Snowdon when the series kicks off on ITV at 9pm on Sunday.
