Former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmate Jessica Plummer has hit back at claims that this year’s stars are getting an easier ride than contestants in past series.

While the ITV reality show has taken place in the Australian jungle for almost 20 years, this year producers had to move the show to a ruined castle in Wales, due to travel restrictions.

Obviously, this led to some big changes to the way things usually run, leading some critics to question whether the castle residents have had it easier than past competitors.

However, former EastEnders star Jessica has insisted this is far from the case. 

Jessica was eliminated alongside opera singer Russell Watson on Wednesday

“We’re in Wales, we’re not in Australia, it’s not 30 degrees,” she told The Sun. “We are freezing cold the whole time.

“All of us had thermals. I wore three pairs of socks at one point. I asked for boots that were two sizes bigger so that I could fit in.”

She added: “It wasn’t till I just kind of surrendered to it that I think I really started to just enjoy the process.”

I’m A Celebrity continues at 9pm on ITV.
