I'm A Celebrity 2012: Charlie Brooks wants to lose weight in the jungle

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Charlie Brooks

I'm A Celebrity star Charlie Brooks has said she hopes to lose weight while in the jungle.

Actress Charlie has been spending some time with her daughter travelling, and admitted it's helped her put on a few pounds.

Charlie and Kiki have been inseparable over the last few months as they have enjoyed a mother/daughter road trip across Europe, camping out under the stars together after the actress got permission to take some time out from her role as Janine Butcher in the popular soap.

Speaking before entering I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Charlie insisted that we shouldn't expect her to "do a Myleene"

She said: "Absolutely not! If I looked like Myleene I might be tempted, but I don't, so no.

"I haven't packed any bikinis. I 'm a one-piece girl."

Charlie admitted: "I don't feel confident in a swimsuit at all. I'll be covering up as much as possible. I'm literally taking a burka in there.

"Most celebs lose weight in the jungle, that's half the reason I'm going - it'll be a detox."

Asked why she had decided to enter the show, Charlie said: "I just want to have some fun and I hope there will be some people in there who do want to have some fun too.

"Christopher Biggins was great because he was the life and soul of the camp and he was so uplifting.”
