    When asked about Gillian McKeith and her reaction to the Bushtucker trials, Sheryl admitted that ‘it’s entertaining to watch her’.

    She said, ‘I really don’t believe she knew what she was getting into. She said she’d never seen the show. She was absolutely so mad about being covered in bugs.

    ‘Everyone else would have gone along and got on with it, but it’s entertaining to watch her… She has a huge phobia of it all. I don’t know why she came on this show.’

    During her time in the jungle, Sheryl took on two Bushtucker trials – Terror Vision and Calamity Cave.

    But she had opted out of a solitary confinement task overnight that would have given her immunity from the public vote.

    Sheryl told Ant and Dec , ‘All day today I already knew in my mind that’s what I wanted to do. I don’t want immunity.

    ‘That I still want to be up for the public vote not that I thought I’d get out the quickest but I just didn’t want to take the chance. I don’t want to win immunity.

    ‘I’m happy to be up for the public vote. I’m very happy to be going back to camp but I wish all the others the best of luck…The only person it will affect is me and no one else.’

    Sheryl tipped X Factor reject Stacey Solomon to be crowned Queen of the jungle at the end of this series.
