Reality television are two words that strike horror into the hearts of many viewers, but the current series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is more entertaining than most of that genre.
This is largely due to the inclusion of food expert Gillian McKeith, who is either fainting, complaining about her phobias or making outlandish statements. Former MP Lembit Opik is another compelling subject for viewers trying to find out what makes him tick.
The series allows us to peer beneath the mask the contestants normally present to the public and that can be very illuminating.
The humans are definitely the oddest species in this particular jungle.
