I’m scared of everything and I’m A Celebrity’s stomach-churning eating tasks are my idea of HELL says Frankie Bridge11/16/2021
I'M A Celebrity star Frankie Bridge has told how the show trials are her "idea of hell" and she is "scared of most things" – but that's exactly why she signed up.
The Saturdays popstar, 32, made her confession ahead of her entry into Wales' spooky Gwrych Castle this weekend.
Her candid revelations of her phobias may have been poorly-timed, after it was revealed fans can already vote for ITV stars to tackle the stomach-churning challenges a week before she show launch – potentially opening her up to a slew of votes.
As she sticks out her pre-show isolation period away from husband Wayne Bridge and their two kids, Frankie said: "I think people will be surprised to see me doing I’m A Celebrity and I am scared of most things, but I really want to push myself.
“I’m scared of rats, I am a fussy eater and I have a bit of a phobia of ketchup, so a pint of penis terrifies me! Any of the eating challenges will be my idea of hell.
"I also hate spiders in my own home, being trapped in small spaces is a big thing for me and pretty much all of that is likely to happen which makes me go, ‘Why the hell are you doing it?’
"And so that is exactly why I am doing it!”
The Loose Women panelist, who has spoken openly about her anxiety, added: “There are going to be so many emotions in the Castle.
"I think it is going to be a total rollercoaster of laughing, crying, loving it, hating it, wanting to stay, wanting to go but that is what going on I’m A Celebrity is all about.
"Now it is all sinking in that I am doing this programme, I can’t wait to go into the Castle.”
Yet the star can take heart after The Sun exclusively revealed she is being hailed the favourite to win.
According to exclusive odds from Betfair, Frankie's odds are at 4/1 followed by Louise Minchin at 9/2.
The least likely to be crowned Queen of the Castle is Strictly's Arlene Phillips at 25/1.
KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY
Higher singer Frankie is set to follow in the footsteps of husband Wayne on the show.
The singer-turned-TV star, a regular on Loose Women, is taking part after ITV chiefs are said to have offered her a bumper deal.
Former Chelsea footballer Wayne, 41, finished fifth in 2016, but was ticked off by Frankie for talking about their sex life.
Now he will be the one watching from home with their sons Parker, eight, and Carter, six, as Frankie sits around the campfire.
The series, which once again won’t be Down Under, returns on Sunday 21st November.
