Royal biographer Lady Colin Campbell is swapping her life of luxury and going back to basics for a stint on this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

Lady Colin Campbell, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here photo call
12 November


Age: 66
Date of birth: August 17th 1949
Phobias: None but equally I don't think I am that brave
Missing any special occasion: Yes I have had to cancel a lot of commitments in my diary to take this on
Biggest misconception you want to dispel in the jungle: Nothing as my life is very complete
Role in the camp: I am not sure yet as I don't know who is going to be in there
Miss most: My children, dogs, cats and my life
Dream camper: A musician. Hopefully there will be a piano and violin in the jungle to keep us entertained
Relationship status: Single

Lady Colin Campbell will be the first aristocrat to take on the jungle and while she's keen to sleep among the critters and tackle the show's Bushtucker trials, Lady Campbell says her eldest son had begged her not to fly to Oz. Why? He thinks she is too "civilised" for the show.

"My eldest son actually didn't want me to do it at first," she explained. "He thought I was too civilised to do something like this. But once I had made the decision I was going to do it, he was, of course, very supportive."

Ahead of heading into camp, Lady Campbell admits she signed up for I'm A Celeb for "selfish reasons". One of those being that she wants to lose weight. Shunning your usual plans to diet or hit the gym, Lady Campbell sees a stay in the jungle as the perfect way to shed a few pounds.

Well, the stars have been known to go hungry in there and with high hopes, she added: "I'd actually like to lose a stone if possible! Rice and beans are fine... "

One thing she isn't looking for, however, is love - despite being single. She said: "My life is fulfilled and I have no ambitions in that direction whatsoever.

"One would need to make space and it would have to be someone pretty special for me to change it completely."
