Caitlyn Jenner has opened up about her transition on I'm A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here.

The Olympian turned reality TV personality is one of ten celebs on this year's show.


In this evening's episode, Caitlyn found herself questioned about her famous family.

Kate Garraway asked Caitlyn if she’d ever had any doubts when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, about letting the cameras in her home. Caitlyn said she didn’t have any doubts.

James Haskell admitted: “I used to have a massive crush on Kendall.”

And Andrew Maxwell added: “I think most men on the planet have fancied one of your daughters at some point.”

Jacqueline Jossa asked Caitlyn if her kids knew if she was doing I’m A Celebrity UK, “Yeah, they all know” replied Caitlyn.

The celebrities continued to chat, with Caitlyn revealing: “I thought I was gonna transition before I was 40, I didn’t want to be an old chick but this is the latter 80’s and I never felt like I fitted in anywhere, I was trying to figure myself out, running around town”.


“Running around town, what do you mean?” asked Andrew.

“Cross dressing running around” answered Caitlyn. “So you’d cross dress in your car and drive around town?” Andrew continued.

Caitlyn replied: “Yeah, at the time, I had a turbo Porsche and it was like the day before Halloween and this car pulled up beside me and it’s my next door neighbour, I said I was going to a Halloween party.”

James said “It’s interesting about wanting to express yourself and how hard it is in life wanting to express yourself but having a thing where you can’t let it and that you have to drive around town.

"I think the biggest thing about your thing is all those people thinking about not being able to do it is the fact they should feel comfortable to do it however hard it is because 99% of the time it’ll work out alright.”

“All my life I struggled with all of those” said Caitlyn.

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Ian said: “Caitlyn talking about herself is just so interesting, I’m fascinated.”

Caitlyn continued: “Then I got my first DWF, ‘driving whilst female’. I was driving my car and some guy in a pick up truck beeps his horn and you look over and he’s like blowing kisses.”

James asked Caitlyn if she had a music track she played whilst driving around town, Caitlyn laughed and said “Yes, Aerosmith’s Looks like A Lady”, the camp all started to sing it.

Caitlyn smiled and said “When I saw Steven Tyler I told him that.”
