. And there was her

shaky start to the show

– the 33-year-old suffered a panic attack before she'd even entered camp, after becoming hysterical on the helicopter. "I got into the chopper and suddenly felt very scared but thought I can't show anyone I'm scared, but I cried like a baby and I don't think I’m going to be able to do this jungle lark," she later explained.

Once Gemma did arrive in the jungle, she was put in the Celebrity Slammer, which meant she was only given porridge to eat. Speaking on Monday's show, she told Nadia, "I'm not enjoying it one bit. I just don't want to do it. It's too hard. If that makes me a quitter, then that's who I am."
