I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2019 is set to kick off on ITV1 this Sunday at 9pm. The celebs have arrived in Australia and the show’s producers are hard at work putting the finishing touches to the all-new 2019 campsite and the Bushtucker trial areas for this series. But it sounds like one star is up to no good…
Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway is apparently planning to smuggle contraband into the jungle via a hidden pouch in her bikini. Every year, the celebrities are given strict instructions as to what they’re allowed to bring into camp – with make-up, food and other home comforts all strictly out of bounds – with the exception of one luxury item each.
On Good Morning Britain, Kate’s co-host Ben Shepard – who is presenting alongside Susanna Reid and Charlotte Hawkins in Kate’s absence – let slip that Kate was conspiring to break the rules by working in some cheeky modifications to her swimsuit, thanks to one of her GMB colleagues.
Ben said: ‘When I left on Friday, Debbie who does everybody's wardrobe was perfecting a little pocket for something into the bikini... I think she was smuggling... well, I don’t know exactly what it is. A bit of make-up maybe, or some spices, because someone said if you look after the cooking... a little seasoning?’
It sounds like Kate has been listening to former I’m A Celeb contestant, Rita Simons’ advice – as earlier this month she encouraged the 2019 campmates to break the rules by bringing in contraband, saying: ‘Smuggle, smuggle it in. What are you gonna lose? Are you gonna get chucked out? I got caught with everything!’
