I'm A Celebrity 2012: Charlie Brooks: 'It will be hard to be myself'

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Charlie Brooks

I'm A Celebrity 2012 contestant Charlie Brooks has admitted she's going to find it hard to be herself in the jungle.

The soap star has taken time out of Coronation Street to appear on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, but confessed that getting out of character could be a struggle for her.

Given she has played Janine for so long in EastEnders, does it feel weird to be going in the jungle as herself?

Definitely, replies Charlie who admits to feeling nervous that people will finally see the actress as herself and not as her soap character.

“It is going to be weird to be on television as myself,” she admits. “It can feel quite daunting, but hopefully people will think it is nice seeing me as me!”

The actress won’t reveal what luxury item she is going to take into the celebrity camp, but make-up definitely will not be high on her list. “Oh gosh I am not arsed about make-up and it’s not going to be my luxury item,” she says, laughing. “I am sure there will be a glamour model in there who will bring make-up if I need it!”
