Former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' Queen of the Jungle Jacqueline Jossa will return to the show this year to hand over her crown to the new King or Queen of the Castle
Jacqueline Jossa has confirmed she will return to 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' this year to hand over her crown.
The former 'EastEnders' star was named Queen of the Jungle on last year's series, and this year she will crown the winner of the 20th season – which is being held in Gwrych Castle, north Wales – as the King or Queen of the Castle, but she is too busy to spend a night in camp.
When it was suggested that viewers will see Jacqueline handing over her crown on this year's show, she said: "Yeah. I'm so excited. I would've gone back in, but I'm busy this year.
"It was the best experience of my whole entire life.
"I would love to do it all over again."
Jacqueline admitted she is "jealous" of the current campmates, and would recommend being on 'I'm A Celebrity' to anyone.
She added: "I always say to absolutely everyone ... the jungle was the best thing I've ever done in my whole entire life.
"I would recommend anyone who gets the chance to do it.
"I'm so jealous of the guys in there now. They're going to have the best experience of their whole entire lives.
"It's definitely changed me – 100 per cent."
One of the 28-year-old actress' current commitments is her upcoming West End debut in 'A Christmas Carol' next month.
While there will be a reduced audience at the Dominion Theatre for the production, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the former Lauren Branning star admitted that may not be a bad thing for her because she won't be as nervous.
Speaking on 'Lorraine', she added: "This is probably a perfect debut – less people, less nerves."
