Edwina Currie hopes talking about her sexual history on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' will "enlighten" the public
Edwina Currie hopes her sexual anecdotes will "enlighten" the public.
The former Conservative MP is glad she spoke about losing her virginity on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' because it could encourage more people to be open about their sex life.
The 68-year-old star said: "We were all talking about losing our virginity. It was so long ago anyway. I don't mind talking about what happened half a century ago.
"If it enlightens other people and gets them to a state of maturity and sexual awareness, I'm happy.
"It may be a taboo subject for young people. When you get to a certain age, you talk about it all the time. It's one of the issues of the WI [Women's Institute]."
Edwina - who came fourth on the ITV reality show - laughed of rumours she had given her former camp mate Nadia Forde, 25, sex tips.
She told The Sun newspaper: "I probably just said, 'Enjoy it while you can, love!"
The ex-politician did have some advice for second place runner-up Jake Quickenden as she warned 'The X Factor' reject to "be careful" following his second place victory, according to Edwina the 26-year-old singer will be "overwhelmed by invitations" from the ladies.
Last night (07.12.14) saw four-time World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty win the title of King of the Jungle. The 49-year-old star beat Jake and third place runner-up Melanie Sykes, 44, to the crown.
