“I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here!” is well and truly back on our TV screens and already, there have been bush tucker trials and tribulations, fall-outs and animal genitals served on plates. Yes, Ant & Dec are once again putting the Z-listers through their paces!
So far, we’ve seen Freddie Starr turn up late, gobble down everything but a hamster, and then leave in an ambulance. We’ve seen a diva-like moan from Stefanie Powers about the provisions of rice and beans, whilst the camera crews have already been following Jessica-Jane and TOWIE star Mark to the waterfalls. And all of that before Sinitta and Pat Sharp arrives in camp!
This year, there are no luxury items for the celebs to cling on to but the annual feast that is celebrities mixed with exotic creepy crawlies has got us thinking – if we could take a luxury item into the jungle, just what would we take?
The first thing that came to mind when it we put together our jungle survival kit is something to drown out the signing of Sinitta and Dougie Poynter or the moaning of Stefanie Powers. Ear-muffs are one solution, although they are a little impractical in the jungle, so we’ll instead go for the iPod Touch to do the job instead.
With 64GB of storage, there’s plenty of space to store music, photos and games, making it easy to shut ourselves off from the rest of the camp. You’ll just need to hope that the battery lasts as long as your stay in the jungle!
Next in our jungle survival pack are two items to help us at least feel clean and fresh, even if we are going to be slumming it in the jungle for a few weeks. After all, who wants to stink out the camp?
Whilst we know that the shower facilities in camp are, shall we say, limited, that doesn’t mean that we can’t at least try and make the most of them. Some refreshing body wash, like this Burts Bees natural peppermint and rosemary body wash should make those trips to the waterfall so much more enjoyable and refreshing! Once we’re done in the shower, we’ll treat the rest of the camp to the scent of our favourite perfume.
There is just one thing that’s missing however. After all, the thing that worries us most of all about a stay in the jungle isn’t a celebrity diva strop or smelling a bit funny, it’s those awful noises in the middle of the night. You know, those screeches and squawks that would keep anyone awake at night?
In situations like that, there is only one known solution – your favourite teddy bear. We’re not ashamed to admit it, our cuddly friend would be the first thing that we would reach for if we ever suspected that we’d be sleeping next to a creepy crawly!
So that’s our jungle survival kit packed, but what luxury item would you take? Let us know by leaving your comment below!
