Jenny Eclair found a lot of the jungle dramas she experienced during her stint on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' ''childish''
Jenny Eclair found appearing on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' a "childish" experience.
The stand-up comedienne - who finished in third place behind Stacey Solomon and Shaun Ryder on the ITV1 reality show last year - admitted a lot of the jungle dramas between her and the other contestants were often "just a bit of panto".
She said: "I refuse to go on an emotional journey. A lot of it was quite childish so you could think, 'This is just a bit of panto'.
"I'm not a shy and retiring violet. If you've spent 30 years as a stand-up comic you're not thin-skinned."
Despite taking a lot of things that happened in the camp on the chin, 50-year-old Jenny - who is famed for her role in 'Grumpy Old Women' - thinks Playboy model Kayla Collins found her "hideous".
She added to Hello! magazine: "It's true - Kayla found me hideous. She saw me as proof of how a woman should not let herself go."
