“I’ve only camped once and that was the worst night of my life,” she reveals.
“I hate spiders. If I see one, I can’t speak, I freeze and I do this weird thing where I wring my hands together!"
“I don’t know where it has come from but as I have got older, I have hated them more and it has now got to the point where I have to have cedar blocks in my house!”
“I am not too fussed about anything else but I have never even met a snake and so I don’t know how I am going to react! It’s the same with rats. On paper, they are cute but in real life they might be massive!”
Adele was asked whether she has contemplated being hypnotised to quell her fear of spiders before she enters the camp and Adele replies:
“I should! But I feel you are in there with people who are willing you on. I am hoping that will push me over the line and attack my fear rather than being controlled by it.”
Incredibly excited to be fulfilling a lifelong ambition to appear on the programme, Adele is the first celebrity to view the Jungle as a chance to have a lie in. Sleep deprivation, she explains, won’t be an issue given she has spent
the last four years getting up at 2am to host her early morning show on Radio 1.
“My show is on so early, we have to make our own fun and so I have got some games we can play if I feel like we are getting bored.”
“I am thinking that I might make a little studio in the camp and draw a line. When people cross over the line, they are in my studio and I will interview them (like I do on my radio programme).”
A very non-confrontational person, Adele is predicting, however, she will burst into tears.
“I get emotional when I don’t have food,” she
“There will be some tears! But I am hoping to learn lots about myself when I am in the Jungle.”
“If other opportunities do come my way, I want to make the most of them rather than ignoring them.”
Laughing, Adele also promises if she does get crowned ‘Queen of the Jungle’, she will walk around with the winning crown forever more.
“Wow if that happened, I would never let the stick go,” she adds.
“I will carry on wearing the hat for the rest of my life!”
