Christopher Biggins, 73, took his chances in the I’m A Celebrity jungle back in 2007, and became a fan-favourite very quickly. While going on to win the show, he remembered there was one person in-particular he didn’t get on with… supermodel Janice Dickinson.
Chatting to Kate Thornton on her White Wine Question Time podcast, he recalled his time in the jungle and how he tried to keep in touch with everyone – apart from Janice.
“I went in there three days late and was confronted by the awful Janice Dickinson,” he sighed.
“When I first met her I thought, ‘Oh she’s quite camp and lovely.’
“But it turns out she was the most hideous woman I’ve ever met in my life!”

“I did ask her once to a apologise, and she said: ‘Why would you make me apologise to that woman?’
“I said: ‘Because you’re not a nice person.'”
Looking back upon his time in the jungle and comparing it to that of more recent years, it made the actor wonder about the workings of TV.
“In a way, I’m a Celebrity thrives if people don’t get on,” he shrugged, noting Janice may not have been like that away from the cameras.
