I'm A Celebrity star Vicky Pattison has said eating kangaroo testicles doesn't phase her, as she insists: "I've had worse in my mouth."

Soon fans are set to see Vicky making her jungle debut, alongside her fellow latecomers TOWIE's Ferne McCann and Spencer Matthews. And determined to show people a different side to her, Vicky is keen to get stuck into camp life, whatever may get thrown at her.

Insisting she won't back down from any trials, even if they may include her eating the jungle's not-so-pleasant delicacies, Vicky has joked: "Have you seen my ex-boyfriends? I've had f****** worse things in my mouth."

The starlet who shot to fame on MTV's hit reality show Geordie Shore has said she wants to change people's perceptions of her while in the jungle.

According to The Daily Star, Vicky is keen to show viewers she's not just all about getting drunk on camera and clashing with her co-stars. Insisting she has more to give, the 28-year-old is hoping the jungle will be the perfect place for her to show that.

So much so, that she insists she won't be backing down from any challenge it may present. "The eating challenges don't scare me... I want to neck on with a kangaroo and eat a cockroach smoothie."

Rather you than us, Vicks!

Vicky's comments come after she was pictured in high spirits over in Australia. The Geordie favourite posed for final shots before trading her glamorous getup for her jungle boots. And seeming excited to meet her fellow campers, Vicky was all smiles as she did so.

Vicky will be heading into the jungle along with Ferne and Spencer.

Very soon, Vicky will be joining the likes of Lady Colin Campbell and Jorgie Porter in camp and she has warned she won't stand for any of her campmates whining.

"If someone is being selfish or not being hands on, or not working as part of a team like that it will really frustrate me and I will just say, what the hell did you expect, it's the jungle," she said.

Although, there may be one camper she'll be keen to let off, as Vicky has revealed she has the hots for Union J's George Shelley.

"At first I thought I was old enough to be his ma – what is he, 15? But when I found out he was 22, I thought, that's a game changer," she confessed.

"And when I found out he likes older women, I thought, what the hell, shut up you cheeky little scamp George, you have no idea what you've done!"

She may have some competition when it comes to fighting for his affections, though, as TOWIE's Ferne has also got his eye on him and he and Jorgie have seemed pretty close in camp so far...

Eek! We can't wait to watch!
