Steve Davis and jungle campers fear I’m a Celebrity storm

Steve Davis and his I’m a Celebrity campmates are fretting about what the jungle holds for them, but forecasters say a three-day storm could be the worst of their worries.

The snooker legend is one of the famous faces heading to the Australian jungle for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! and said his campmates were what worried him the most about the ordeal.

He told The Sun: “Life in general scares me. But people are harder to deal with than animals. I think the animals will be the easiest part – after all, most people prefer a dog to a partner.”

Steve added: “I’m OK with confrontation.”

But the celebrities could find the weather difficult to contend with before the bushtucker trials even begin, as there are warnings a three-day storm could be about to hit the Gold Coast and Aussie jungle and it has been rumoured TV bosses are worried they will have to do last minute repairs to the camp for the start of the series.

Apparently Matthew Wright is more stressed about the prospect of creepy crawlies – he is said to have been in tears at the idea of dealing with spiders.

The talk show host is thought to have a severe case of arachnophobia which he is hoping to overcome in the jungle, but according to The Sun he recently closed off one of his home’s bathrooms and banned the rest of the family from going in there for a month because he couldn’t face a spider in the bath tub.

EastEnders star Laila Morse is taking a more positive view and said she didn’t feel too nervous, but would love to share the camp with Johnny Depp.

She said: “Anyone will do, but I’d love Johnny Depp to be in there because I just like him. I love I’m A Celebrity and I’ve watched it since it started. Can I cope with jungle life? Who knows?

“I’m not really frightened of anything. There’s nothing in there that’s going to hurt you. I’m not worried about the eating trials. If they don’t kill you I’m not bothered.”
