I’m A Celeb: Josie Gibson arrives in Australia

Josie Gibson joked she would be using her time in the jungle as an opportunity to relax.

The 38-year-old spoke ahead of her I’m A Celebrity debut where she will be joined by the likes of Nigel Farage and Jamie Lynne Spears.

The This Morning presenter said she wanted to enter the jungle “to have a little bit of a relax”.

But she admitted it would be hard to be away from her young son Reggie.

“It’s going to be very tough and I am worried about not having any contact with him,” Josie remarked. “He is so excited though!”

Despite taking on challenges for This Morning she is admittedly feeling “anxious” about her appearance.

Josie said she has looked to her fellow colleagues as she revealed Alison Hammond has been giving her advice.

“I know she will be rooting for me,” adds Josie. “She has told me to try my hardest. Everyone at This Morning says I am going to love it. In fact, they are the ones who have really enticed me to do it! They are very supportive and I am going to miss them all.”

Josie’s comments come after many former guests and hosts made accusations about a “toxic” atmosphere on the set of the hit daytime show.
