Fatima Whitbread and Mark Wright had a restless night of sleep after a rat repeatedly tried to get into the former Olympian's bed
Fatima Whitbread struggled to sleep in the 'I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' camp after a rat jumped on her head.
The former Olympic athlete was shocked when the rodent leapt onto her, causing 'The Only Way is Essex' hunk Mark Wright - who has sparked up a close friendship with Fatima since entering the Australian jungle on Sunday (13.11.11) - to panic because of an innate fear of the creatures.
A terrified Fatima said: "Ah! There's a rat, it keeps running in my bed."
Spotting the long-tailed beast under her bed, she added: "He's under my bed, I see him, he's just under there."
However, even after the rat had seemingly disappeared, Mark was unable to quell his fears and claimed he would suffer a "heart attack" if he woke up with a rodent in his bed.
He said: "I don't want to go back to sleep, Fats. If you hadn't told me and it came up on me, I would have had a heart attack."
Meanwhile, 80s pop star Sinitta and DJ Pat Sharp were also revealed as the new camp mates heading in to the jungle last night (14.11.11).
