Words of wisdom: "People say you make friends for life and so I am really excited about making some new friends in the jungle. It will be good to discover things about myself too - my different strengths and weaknesses."
"I am fearful of heights. I have never jumped out of a plane and I don't even like rooms high up in a hotel. I will scream if I see a spider at home but we will all be in the camp together and we will all deal with it."
