The Countdown star's best pal, author Amanda Prowse, dismissed firmly dismissed Vicky's theory with a tweet posted to Carol's official Twitter account.

Amanda responded: "The only thing 'Princessy' about our Carol is that she's kissed a few frogs! #hardasnails."

Others who came to Carol's defence included columnist and former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Carole Malone, who said: "Oh no she won't [have a meltdown]. She's tougher than most of them."

Vicky was Queen of the Jungle 2015 so knows how hard the show can be.

Vicky's comments originally came when she was talking to reporters in Australia ahead of the new series of I'm A Celebrity starting on Sunday night.

The former Geordie Shore suggested she was unsure if Carol could hack the jungle, based on the opinion she formed when Carol was a guest on her panel show.

"We had her on It's Not Me, It's You and she was saying how she liked her life the way she liked it. She seemed very particular," said Vicky.

"I thought, 'She's a princess on a panel show, what will she be like in the jungle?' I think she'll really struggle and I think we'll see a meltdown. It would be great TV."

Carol, 55, is one of ten stars entering the jungle on Sunday night.

Vicky, meanwhile, was last year's Queen of the Jungle. This time around she's returning as a co-host on the renamed spinoff show Extra Camp.

I'm A Celebrity starts 9pm Sunday on ITV.
