Ferne McCann, 32, has reflected upon her stint on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! back in 2015, which saw her brave the petrifying Bushtucker Trials to reach third place. In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, the former TOWIE star admitted that although she was faced with the “most disgusting thing” she has ever had to do, she knew from the beginning what she had signed up for, and has absolutely no regrets.

Ferne explained: “You know what you’re signing up for when you’re doing it.

“I was incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity.

“Yes, eating the spider was the most disgusting thing I have ever had to do and lying in a coffin with snakes wrapped around me was far from a walk in the park, but I did it, survived it and got to experience one of the most incredible couple of weeks of my life.”

But despite facing some blood-curdling tasks, Ferne looks back on the intense experience with fondness.

When quizzed about her thoughts on the ITV show, Ferne said: “I loved it so much.

“Falling asleep under the stars, being cosy in that hammock and sharing the experience with some of the most amazing people I’m still friends with to this day.”

Ferne also made a very special connection with Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattinson, which resulted in their friendship.

However, she admitted that the Bushtucker Trials, which challenge the celebrities to complete gruesome tasks to earn food, were far from her favourite thing about the show.

She recounted: “That was how me and Vick became friends.

“I just recently caught up with George Shelley again and we picked it back up again like it was just yesterday.

“I genuinely loved the whole thing…maybe not the Bushtucker Trials so much?!

“Was honestly one of the best experiences of my life though.”

Back in 2020, Ferne told Express.co.uk how “lazy” contestants inevitably struggle more than others, as “the boredom will get you in the end”.

Discussing the new series ahead, Ferne revealed that the trick to avoid getting bored was to “get involved” in every activity.

She said: “I think the main thing is boredom.

“You really need to immerse yourself into camp life and just get involved, because being away from civilisation and your friends and family and to be thrown into this completely new environment… it’s lack of sleep and you are hungry.

“You’re going to start to behave differently and maybe not what you normally would.”

And even though the contestants may have gotten “used to” dealing with boredom due to being stuck indoors during the coronavirus lockdown, Ferne insisted I’m A Celebrity is “a whole different ball game”.

She added: “But maybe after adjusting to new living conditions in lockdown the celebs might be used to it.

“But this is a whole different ball game and the celebs really need to get involved in the chores around the camp because that is what keeps you busy. 

“If you don’t stay busy in there, the boredom will get you in the end.”
