Gemma Collins has said TOWIE star Ferne McCan is "tough enough" to cope in the jungle.

Ferne is being tipped to star on the brand new series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! kicking off on Sunday (15 November), and Gemma knows exactly what it's like having entered the jungle last year, which she quit after three days.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Gemma was asked how she thought her friend and rumoured camper Ferne would handle the jungle life.

"I think Ferne is definitely the right person for the job," said Gemma. "She's tough enough."

Is this the confirmation we need that Ferne really is heading Down Under?

Former TOWIE star Gemma also gave her thoughts on Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter (who has confirmed her I'm A Celeb stint) and former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison.

"I think Jorgie, Ferne and Vicki are all babes and they'll smash it," added Gemma.

Messaging Gemma after the interview, Ferne said via Twitter: "Watching my girl on @GMB I could watch @missgemcollins all day."

If Ferne is going into the jungle, will Gemma be giving her some survival tips and a heads up on what to expect?!

TOWIE series finale airs Wednesday 11 November at 10pm on ITVBe.
