Caitlyn Jenner reveals her biggest I'm A Celebrity fear - and it's not the snakes

Caitlyn Jenner.

Caitlyn Jenner has confessed her biggest fear heading into I'm A Celebrity fear.

And it's not the snakes or bug she's frightened about.

The Olympian and reality presenter is one of ten celebrity contestants confirmed for this year's line up.

Ahead of heading into the jungle, Caitlyn has admitted she will find dealing with her fellow contestants the toughest part of doing I’m A Celebrity.

“Dealing with other people is by far the hardest thing,” she explained. “It’s much more difficult than dealing with the most poisonous snakes in the world. That’s easy - just stay away from them!

“You can’t get away from the other people and it will be a very different experience for me. Last time, I did it with a bunch of people from the States who I knew of. This time it’s a bunch of people from the UK who I potentially won’t know.

"But I love going over to the UK, I love the British people and I am looking forward to making some new friends, new allies and getting through it all.”

It's Caitlyn's second time taking part in I'm A Celebrity having previously appeared in the American version in 2003.

She said: "I did the US version of this and it was a very interesting experience last time I did it

“Being in the Jungle is certainly not easy and yes, it is totally back to basics but I thought this would be a great opportunity to leave everything behind for three weeks. Last time, it was almost like a cleansing of the soul!"

Caitlyn has ten children, including Kylie and Kendall Jenner. She is also related to Kim Kardashian who is the daughter of Caitlyn’s former wife, Kris. So what does her famous family think about Caitlyn going on I’m a Celebrity?

She says they did ask her why she wanted to do it but stresses: “I said, you know what, I need a break, I like challenges.”

To be crowned ‘Queen of the Jungle’, adds Caitlyn, would be a big validation that she had made the right decision to do I’m a Celebrity again.

I'm A Celebrity will air from Sunday night on ITV at 9PM, hosted by Ant and Dec.
