Jimmy Bullard has confessed to having hallucinations about food while starving in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' jungle
Jimmy Bullard started to hallucinate about food in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.
The former Premier League footballer was the first celebrity to be evicted from the ITV reality series camp in Australia on Monday (01.12.14) and he's now confessed he got so hungry during his time on the show that he began having hallucinations.
He said: "I panicked and 'went into one' for ten minutes. It was totally nutty and I lost my head completely. It's crazy how mad your brain gets in there.
"I was staring at the fire. I saw pizza and a curry. I even saw blokes walk past and thought about eating them."
The 36-year-old star was one of the favourites to be crowned king of the jungle before viewers saw him lashing out at former 'X Factor' contestant Jake Quickenden, but insists the footage was edited to make the "banter" look worse than it was.
He explained: "You have a little bit of a respect thing. I wouldn't say what I said to Jake to Michael [Buerk].
"You have lines but with Jake and Foggy [Carl Fogarty] we didn't have any lines.
"We could say anything to each other and Jake will put it right when he comes out."
Jimmy also admits his friends back home in the UK have been giving him stick for not doing well in the bush tucker trials.
He confessed to The Sun newspaper: "My mate belled [phoned] me last night and I got slaughtered. There was a massive per cent of me that wanted to them but a massive per cent that didn't."
Meanwhile, Nadia Forde was the second celebrity to be voted off the show in last night's (02.12.14) episode.
