Jordan Banjo says taking part in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' made him a "different person".
The Diversity dancer was the fourth celebrity to be eliminated from the 2016 series of the jungle based reality show, and has admitted the experience was so challenging he isn't sure "how [he] did it".
Speaking on ITV's 'Good Morning Britain' alongside fellow Diversity dance stars Ashley Banjo and Perri Kiely, Jordan said: "Looking back at - after being out of it for so long now - I'm like mate I don't even know how I did it!
"That's a different person!"
And Jordan also opened up about the horrifying bushtucker trial that he underwent named the Tomb of Torment, where he was plunged in darkness whilst 120,000 critters climbed over him, alongside 'Gogglebox' star Scarlett Moffatt, ex-'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Ola Jordan, and Olympic gold medal winner Sam Quek.
The 23 year old said of the trial: "I was laying there and the girls were like 'let's sing' and I was like 'let's not!'"
"I've got scars on my neck from when the rats scratched me!"
The news comes after Jordan described the whole experience as "overwhelming" during his interview on with show presenters Ant and Dec after he was voted out of the jungle.
He said at the time: "The whole experience was so overwhelming, it was something I never thought I'd get the chance to do. I'm not joking, those guys in there is such a beautiful person and I can't wait to see them when they get out.
"I've never seen a camp like it. It was sort of like a home away from home because every day I'm with a team. I thought it would be arguments and big egos but it hasn't been anything like that."
