Caitlyn Jenner Has Been On I’m A Celeb Before

Whilst Caitlyn Jenner is one of the biggest names to be heading into the jungle for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2019, it turns out that the 70-year-old reality star is not a total rookie. Caitlyn previously appeared on the US version of the show back in 2003 and we’ve got all the details…

Caitlyn Jenner has touched down in Australia ahead of the start of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2019 this Sunday night on ITV1. However, it turns out that the 70-year-old has some experience when it comes to jungle living and Bushtucker Trials – as she’s actually appeared on the show before.

It turns out that Caitlyn appeared on the first-ever US series of I’m A Celeb way back in 2003 – then known as Bruce and still married to Kris Jenner - and came forth out of the ten contestants, finishing behind John Melendez, Melissa Rivers and Cris Judd (he was married to Jennifer Lopez at one point, apparently).

Caitlyn explained: ‘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.’

She’s also revealed that whilst she’s unfazed by critters, her biggest fear going into the jungle is other people, admitting in her pre-jungle interview: ‘Dealing with other people is by far the hardest thing. It's much more difficult than dealing with the most poisonous snakes in the world. That's easy — just stay away from them.’

As a worldwide US-based star, Caitlyn is thought to have commanded one of the biggest paychecks in I’m A Celeb history – as reports say she’s set to receive upwards of £500,000 for participating on the show this time around. Let’s just hope she makes it worth it by being an entertaining campmate…
