No escape for Gillian McKeith as Sheryl Gascoigne leaves jungle

The 45-year-old was reunited with her three children Mason, Bianca and Regan after leaving the camp.

She said she was relieved to have left.

"There's only so much damp and darkness and wet towel you can take," she said.

"The last three days with the rain and the prison wasn't so good."

Shown clips of Gillian performing her bushtucker trials Sheryl said: '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."

Later, on ITV's Daybreak, Paul Gascoigne's former wife was asked if she thought Gillian's phobias and reactions were all real. Several commentators have said she may be faking or exaggerating to get more publicity.

"I had no reason not to believe her. She was so convincing that I had to believe her," said Sheryl.

"When she had trials, she was just petrified. She was shaking with fear in the morning"
