I’M A Celebrity fans are in for a treat this year with camp mate Olivia Attwood who is terrified of creepy crawlies.

The TV star has a secret fear of critters and “flaps” at the sight of bugs.

Olivia Attwood is terrified of bugs and will ‘freak out’ in the jungle camp
She became a show legend but insisted she never faked fainting before tasks

A source said: “Olivia can’t stand bugs, like really can’t stand them and she flaps even when she spots a fly near her.

“She is absolutely guaranteed to be entertaining to watch which, lets be honest, is what show bosses are hoping for.

“We’ll have to wait and see if she pulls a Gillian McKeith and faints during the worst trials but she will definitely have her freak out moments. She’s a tough girl but the jungle camp is going to be her worst nightmare.”

Olivia, 31, is set to make jungle history as the first ever Love Island star on the ITV show which returns on Sunday night on ITV.

Gillian McKeith, 63, also went down in jungle history when she produced some of I’m A Celeb’s most memorable moments while bunking off trials.

The You Are What You Eat star fainted twice on the show back in 2010, but was called out over her “theatrics” after viewers spotted her pulling down her top while supposedly unconcious.

When asked about fakery claims, she said on Loose Women: “I actually have a medical history of fainting.

“I know I fainted and I don’t care what anyone else says to be honest, it doesn’t really bother me. The older you get, the less you care anyway.”

The 2022 series is already set to be a blast as the exciting new line-up of stars landed in Oz earlier this week.

Celebs heading into the dreaded rumble in the jungle include pop icon Boy George, former Radio 1 host Chris Moyles, and Princess Zara’s husband Mike Tindall.

HOAR exclusively revealed MP and former health secretary Matt Hancock has joined as a camp latecomer.

He touched down in Brisbane today amid calls for him to be axed from the show.
