TOWIE's Gemma Collins: 'It was brave to leave I'm A Celebrity'

Gemma Collins has reiterated her desire to return to I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to prove she can do it.

The TOWIE star infamously only lasted a few days in the Australian jungle last year before quitting but now she's itching to try it again.

She told The Sun: "I am not a quitter. I was brave to go in there and I was brave to leave because I knew I would get a lot of stick. I've taken a lot of abuse over it. I'll hopefully get my time again."

Gemma, 34, left the jungle in tears after three days on camera and flew back to the UK but later said she hadn't been in the right mindset before the show because her mum was ill and she'd been injured.

She's said in numerous interview that she would definitely go back if they asked her, saying: "I'll always regret letting the British public down."

Rumours surfaced this week that Gemma may well get her wish as she's in "advanced talks" to return to the show but so far neither she nor ITV have confirmed this.

If true, she wouldn't be the first star given a second shot at the jungle: Katie Price famously appeared in both the third and ninth series.
