After a tumultuous eight-day stint on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!, Grace Dent has opened up about the darker sides of her experience, including waking up with ‘mealworms in her bra’ and the unforgettable moment medics had to remove a cockroach from her ear.
The 50-year-old food critic shared her reflections in a lengthy Instagram post upon returning to the UK after leaving the jungle.
Challenges in the Jungle: From Insects to Unappetizing Discoveries
Grace expressed her gratitude for the support from fans and recounted the infamous incident when a live cockroach entered her ear during a trial.
She described the challenges of sleeping in the jungle, including encounters with hungry rats, noisy toads, moths, and Huntsman spiders.
Despite concerns about her well-being, Grace reassured fans that she surprised herself with her physical strength, emphasizing her ability to carry logs, build fires, and face daunting challenges.
Post-Jungle Indulgence: Three-Course Dinners and Extra Potatoes
Addressing worries about her health, Grace shared that she is now enjoying post-jungle indulgences, including ‘three-course dinners and extra potatoes.’
She acknowledged the support from fans and ended the post by revealing her plan to recover and make serious plans for dinner once the adrenaline from the jungle experience subsides.
Grace’s Decision to Snub TV Appearances and Interviews
MailOnline reported that Grace Dent has chosen to snub all TV appearances and interviews, opting instead to go on holiday to put her jungle experience behind her.
Sources close to Grace mentioned her desire to forget about the challenging time in the camp and focus on relaxation. Fellow quitter Jamie Lynn Spears is expected to follow a similar path, with both contestants not obligated to fulfill media duties after leaving the show on ‘medical grounds.’
Grace’s Departure: Mutual Decision and Full Fee
Grace left the series on Monday in a decision described as ‘mutually decided’ between her and the broadcaster. Despite her departure, she and Jamie Lynn Spears will receive their full fees.
While ITV had hoped for post-show interviews, it appears unlikely for both celebrities, as they aim to distance themselves from the challenging jungle experience.
The incident sheds light on the demanding nature of the I’m A Celebrity show and the impact it can have on participants, prompting some to seek a swift retreat from the public eye.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
