Ahead of entering their jungle home, the celebs were tasked with taking on a challenge to earn stars for the camp - with Babatunde Aleshe, Charlene White and Jill Scott taking on the skyscraper challenge - and viewers were seriously impressed with Jill’s cool head during the terrifying task!

Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: "Cmon Jill Scott. My Winner," while another fan added: "So I'm thinking we can just cut this 3 weeks down to a day and call Jill the winner already." A third person wrote: "There. Is. Your. Winner.  What’s not to love about Jill Scott." Another fan wrote: "I know it’s the first episode but…i can see Jill Scott being a potential winner."

How amazing was Jill during the challenge?

Before entering the jungle, Jill opened up about taking part on the show, telling ITV: "I am intrigued as to how I will react in the trials. I don’t like rats or snakes and if I had to be underground that would be scary.

"That is literally like being buried alive! But I am looking forward to it all and meeting new people. I will help people if they are having a bad day. Everyone has got a story to tell and I love being part of a team. Hopefully we can create a good camp.”

Speaking about potentially winning the show, she added: "I am a winning type of person naturally but more in a football sense when there is a Euro’s trophy at the end of it,” she replies. “I am not going in to win. I am going in to have a good time. I am the type of person who is very happy for people who do well and it doesn’t necessarily have to be me.”
