I'm A Celebrity 2012 line up: Linda Robson not worried about bugs!

Linda Robson

I'm A Celebrity 2012 star Linda Robson has insisted she's not worried about bugs, revealing she's had hypnotherapy to cure her phobias!

The Birds of a Feather star touched down in Australia last night ahead of the series launch this weekend.

She told The Sun about entering the show, famous for its tasks full of animals: “I’m not in the least bit bothered about bugs and creepy-crawlies — but I used to be petrified of rats. Thankfully, I’ve been hypnotised, so I’ll be fine in there.

“I’ve been asked to do the show many times before — but I’ve always said no. The rat phobia stopped me doing it."

And Linda added that she's also brought in plenty of bikinis for the jungle shower!

She teased: "It’s a lovely white one. I’m going to be just like Myleene!”

Other stars said to be on this year's I'm A Celeb line up include former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan, comic Brian Conley, darts champ Eric Bristow and Made In Chelsea hunk Hugo Taylor

Eastenders duo Ricky Groves and Charlie Brooks, Doctor Who actor Colin Baker and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts have also all been linked to the series, with the full line up set to be officially revealed later this week.
