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.
