Best known for: Murdering her husband Barry when she pushed him off a cliff in a dramatic episode

Career high: Her role on the top BBC1 soap

Love life: Dating

Jungle phobias: "I don't like the idea of rats or insects crawling all over my body"

Missing any special occasion in the jungle? "The wedding and hen do of one of my best friends"

What she will miss most? Her daughter, Kiki

Words of wisdom: "My brother told me that if I was going to go on any of these kinds of shows, then this was the most up my street. By that I don't mean eating the horrible things, but more the adventurous side of the show and camping in the jungle. He knows I love being outdoors."

"I have been camping a lot and I love it," she says.

"I haven't jumped out of a plane, but I have done some bungee jumps before and so when I got offered this, I decided to accept.

"I have surprised myself by saying yes, but now I am going I am really excited."
