TV entertainer Brian Conley has made sure he is fully prepared for life in the jungle – having overcome his dislike of rats by allowing eight to run all over him. He’s now even got a picture of the animal as a screensaver on his mobile phone: “I say bring on the rats!”
Rodents aside, Brian is looking forward to sleeping under the stars and hopes he will be able to entertain his fellow Celebrities around the campfire. “I really enjoy making new friends and I am sure I will throw some entertainment into the soiree!” he says.
Does he want to be crowned King of the Jungle? “Of course it would be lovely to win or get in the final group,” he says. “But I am going into the jungle because it will be such a great experience. Doing things like jumping out of a plane is a dream come true.”
