Brave Fatima helps I'm a Celeb star

Fatima Whitbread came to the rescue for Antony Cotton

Fatima Whitbread has shown campmates she is completely fearless - by sucking a bug out of an I'm A Celeb pal's leg.

The athletic former world champion javelin thrower stepped in when Coronation Street star Antony Cotton complained of a red swollen mark on his leg.

Fatima has already shown she is an action woman by taking the lead to build a new camp for contestants when they found it too smelly in a cave which producers had prepared for them.

She leapt into action to tackle Antony's swelling when he pointed out the mark. "Do you think this is a tick? Bizarre, isn't it?" he asked as they sat by a stream.

Fatima then bent down and started sucking at the wound. "You don't want to risk anything like that," she said decisively.

She also kept her cool when a rat jumped on her head, waking her from her sleep overnight.

After alerting the others, she reassured Mark Wright that the fist-sized rodent had gone back in the nearby water.

"If you hadn't told me and it came up on me I would have had a heart attack," he told her before zipping himself into his sleeping bag.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
