'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' star, Edwina Currie, has been branded "one tough lady" by her husband of 13 years
'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' star, Edwina Currie, is "one tough lady", according to her husband of 13 years.
Retired policeman, John Jones, thinks the 68-year-old former Conservative MP - who entered the show on Thursday alongside 'X Factor' reject, Jake Quickenden - will cause a stir with her fellow campmates.
He said: "Knowing Edwina as I do they'll be wishing she'd been locked up in The Slammer for a few days before being unleashed on them.
"She's a big girl and she can look after herself. Edwina is one tough lady and she's a lot nicer than the image of her that's often portrayed.
"Whether she'll be nice to everyone in the camp is another story - but that's what the programme is about, isn't it? Friendship and enmity."
John - who will be looking after the couple's home in Derbyshire whilst Edwina competes on the show - has revealed that her "honest" qualities will mean she won't take any nonsense from the campers.
He explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Once she finds her feet, you can expect plenty of fun and games. Edwina will help anybody, especially anyone who is struggling, but if they're being lazy or selfish she won't be scared to have a dig.
"She doesn't suffer fools gladly, so it will be interesting to see how she deals with the different characters in there. Her greatest quality is that she is utterly honest and I don't think she'll be any different in the jungle.
"If she thinks anyone is taking the Michael than she will instigate 'proceedings'. Maybe she'll still end up in The Slammer."
