Kian Egan has admitted he was taken back by Gemma Collins' behaviour on the opening episode of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Last year's King of the Jungle, Kian, told ITV's this Morning that he thinks Gemma will be "fantastic" to watch but he was surprised by how quickly she broke down.

Kian is the I'm A Celebrity correspondent for This Morning.

Viewers watched Gemma freaking out when she was put in a helicopter to fly to the jungle, demanding to be let out. She was then driven to the jungle to meet with her campmates where she broke down again, threatening to quit.

Kian said: "Poor Gemma. The first thing she is asked to do is get on a helicopter. It's not that big of a deal! To break down and have a panic attack so fast, I was quite taken back by that. And then to see her get out of the helicopter, I thought, 'Ok, come on!'

"Then she gets in there, straight away the fly in her hair is driving her mad, the food is a big issue for her. It's not even day two, do you know what I mean?"

Gemma broke down on last night's episode.

Westlife singer Kian, however, said he reckons Gemma will be "fantastic" to watch and she's coming across as "lovely and funny". He is concerned, though, she's going to be voted to do every Bushtucker Trial.

We kind of agree with him there...

Kian added: "We've all seen the show. It's series fourteen, we know what is coming. Obviously there is a bit of a difference when you get there but day one... Gemma is a lovely girl, she comes across very funny. She will be great entertainment - but for the right reasons or wrong reasons?"

I'm A Celebrity continues tonight on ITV.
