Edwina Currie was voted off of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last night (06.12.14).
The former Conservative MP was the seventh campmate to be eliminated from the show, leaving Melanie Sykes, Carl Fogarty and Jake Quickenden to fight for the crown tonight (07.12.14).
Speaking to the show's hosts Ant and Dec after her exit, she said: "I thought it would be horrible but I would do it for the house extension and being an older woman on TV.
"But they were a lovely bunch of people and I really mean that, it is not flannel.
"It is physically hard. I have done my fair share of camping but not like that and the food was horrible."
Edwina - who openly rowed with fellow contestants Kendra Wilkinson and Melanie on the show - spoke up about their feuds.
She said: "I think [Kendra] was a bit like that because this silly old cow said 'I think you are wrong' and normally when she goes off, people back off. I don't back off and I listened to her for a few minutes before I intervened.
"I'm sorry if I upset Mel in any way, but my experience having been there in my forties and now in my sixties as many grans will tell you, you should never be independent."
The 68-year-old ex-politician is championing 'X Factor' star, Jake, to become King of the Jungle. The pair entered the camp later than the others and took part in a special mission as part of the 'Celebrity Intelligence Agency'.
When asked who she is backing, she said: "They are all great and any would be a worthy winner but it has been Jake for me from the start.
"He is a gent and a star in the making."
