Former Birds of a Feather star Linda Robson has already got her feathers all ruffled – and that’s before she’s even set foot in the jungle: “My big thing is the coffin,” she frets, letting her imagination run riot. “I have made it clear that if I get a challenge like that, we won’t get any food. I have done a lot of scary things over the years, but I am not doing that.”

Aside from Bushtucker tomb doom, Linda is also dreading leaving her family behind, but says the lure of the jungle was too much to resist: “I know people who have been in the jungle, like Joe Swash and Jenny Éclair, and nobody has come out saying they regretted going in. Everybody has loved the experience.”

Linda sums up: “Going on I’m A Celebrity… is going to be both exciting and nerve-wracking. One minute I think: ‘Wow what an adventure’ and the next minute I think: ‘Oh gosh what have I done’…!”
