Gillian McKeith believes viewers continually voted for her to do Bushtucker Trials on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' because she was ''entertaining''
Gillian McKeith believes viewers voted for her to do Bushtucker Trials because she was "entertaining".
The TV nutritionist - who was voted off 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' on Monday night (29.11.10) - thinks her constant screaming and fainting in the face of jungle critters made the ITV1 show more "interesting", as the other contestants are "dull".
She said: "Viewers voted for me because I am interesting. They love seeing someone scream or faint at trials. They don't just want to see someone go through the motions. They want entertainment.
"They don't want dull people."
The 'You Are What You Eat' star also confessed she thought she would be living in a plush hotel - rather than the Australian jungle - when she first agreed to take part in the show.
Gillian added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I thought I'd be swinging in a hammock with a hunky actor from 'EastEnders' tending to me. I wanted a break. Australia sounded good. The weather is nice and I figured this could be the break I needed.
"When I landed in Australia and I discovered that it was a little different to what I was expecting, I started to get worried. To be honest, I didn't think we were camping in the jungle. I thought you needed a tent to camp.
"I thought we did the jungle thing during the day, but then sleep in a hotel."
