I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star Lady Colin Campbell may have divided opinion in camp but she has a very solid supporter in Katie Hopkins.

Controversial TV personality Katie has praised 66-year-old socialite and author Lady C as a "force of nature" and reveals she aspires to be her.

"There's a lot of me in her. I think I am her," Katie told RadioTimes.com. "When I grow up, I want to be her."

In the last two weeks, Lady C has found herself in arguments with Tony Hadley, Yvette Fielding, Duncan Bannatyne and Brian Friedman. Her brunt, straight-talking approach, her sometimes hilarious one liners and conflicts with campers has made her the most talked about celeb this series.

"She slings an insult and then totally backs up that insult saying 'It's the truth, so I said it', which is very like me," continued Katie. "It's sort of telling people the truth and they can own their issue with that."

Katie, who said that Lady C is only disliked because she is "perceived as posh" added: "I like the fact that the whole camp can not be talking to her and she still doesn't give a s***. Brilliant."

Lady Colin has been the most talked about celeb this series.

Of course, Katie knows what life in the jungle is really like. She took part in the seventh series in 2007 and was the second celebrity to be eliminated from camp.

During Katie's year she was joined in the jungle by the likes of chef John Burton Race, EastEnders star Marc Bannerman, singer Cerys Matthews, former 5ive member Jason 'J' Brown, supermodel Janice Dickinson, who was runner-up, and Christopher Biggins, who was crowned King of the Jungle.

But what if Katie had been in the jungle with Lady C?

"I think that would have been quite funny," she said. "I think she would have been a dastardly ally."
