I'm A Celebrity.......... Get Me Out of Here (2008)


JACI STEPHEN'S JUNGLE WATCH: Why my money is on scary Martina


By Jaci Stephen

Last updated at 12:51 PM on 17th November 2008




Love it or loathe it, it's a programme that makes - and breaks - showbusiness careers. Our soap expert JACI STEPHEN takes a wry look at life in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! jungle camp in the first of her regular dispatches on the latest series.

So, another year over, a new one just begun, as John Lennon once sang. ITV1's version of Fraggle Rock is upon us once more. What a shower. I mean, honestly, I usually fancy one, have an affection for another, and at least know most of them.

This year, ex-EastEnders star Joe Swash is too young for me; ex-politician and TV presenter Robert Kilroy-Silk is still too smarmy; and I have never heard of Nicola McLean or Carly Zucker.

But while today we may be asking who on earth these people are, the chances are that over the next three weeks we will all be talking about them as if they were members of our own family.

It is clear that most of them were asking who the other alleged celebrities were, too.

'Are you in EastEnders?' Robert asked ex-Blue band member Simon Webbe.

Ignorance on the geography front was more Joe's thing. 'Is that near Prague?' Joe asked Martina Navratilova, when she said she was from the Czech Republic.

Bless him. From the Gold Coast's luxury Palazzo Versace, the celebrities were split into two groups and asked to nominate one person to take part in a challenge called Trauma Tank.

Ex-tennis superstar Navratilova and ex-Deputy Assistant Commissioner for the Met (notice how many 'exes' there are among this lot?) Brian Paddick were already exchanging words.

Martina wasn't sure that Joe, who had volunteered, was up to the task.

Star Trek 'legend' (Really? I only remember the one with big ears) George Takei was all for him havinga go, as he had 'youth and confidence'.

Joe immediately regretted his decision, expressing fear when Martina later took a dig at him.







Albert Square has nothing on Martina; this is a woman who could eat the entire Mitchell clan for breakfast and still have room for a whopper with extra fries. There was disagreement in camp two, also, where Robert was against Carly going for the challenge, insisting: 'We've got to win.'

And so the task fell to Simon. Not for the first time in my life, I found myself screaming 'Oh, shut up, Robert!' at the TV screen.

My squeals of delight could be heard across continents as his group made their way to camp across a large lake on floating 'feet', and he repeatedly fell in the water.


Where are those crocodiles when you need them?

Martina Navratilova was the first to jump out of a plane when the group descended into camp by air.


To me, the fearless Martina is one of the finest sports personalities who ever lived, and my money's on her to win.

Below, however, is the latest guide to her rivals to the jungle throne...

Esther Rantzen and Timmy Mallett left in the last few days


Oh and Brian Paddock left last night and Nicola had left tonight!


And I'm glad she went out, too. Didn't like her character at all, and her fake boobs look dreadful.

Then again, David Van Day is a complete a*hole.:angry:


All the others are OK. I reckon the last two will be Joe and Simon.
