Bobby Norris has praised Gemma Collins, calling her a "tough cookie".
The 33-year-old 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who is currently appearing on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' - was seen crying on the show's launch night (16.09.14) after refusing to be flown in a helicopter.
Speaking of the incident, Bobby said: "I am still in shock by the launch night shenanigans. Gemma is one tough cookie - usually on our holidays she is the one holding my hand on the flights.
"To see her freak out like that when they boarded the helicopter was really out of character so I can't help but worry how she is handling it."
The 28-year-old television personality is due to fly to Australia soon to appear on the ITV2 spin-off show and is hoping his pal will still be in the competition by the time he arrives.
He said: "I hope that by the time I get to Oz she is still in the jungle and hasn't walked!"
"The Gem I know is gutsy, she just needs to dig deep and find a bit of courage.
"Moving from Essex to the Oz jungle is bound to take a little while to settle in."
Meanwhile, Bobby has revealed his plan to curb Gemma's hunger levels in the jungle.
He explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It sounds like hunger is getting to her already - I want to parachute her in a Big Mac meal, with six nuggets on the side a strawberry milkshake and some wedges as I know she would love that!"
