Jenny in I'm A Celebrity diet bid

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! newcomer Jenny Eclair has revealed she had joined the show to drop a dress size - as part of an "extreme diet" plan.

The comedian and writer reckoned she agreed to head to Australia in a bid to slip into smart frocks for Christmas.

She and Dom Joly have become the latest stars to enter the jungle on the ITV1 show and will be seen joining the rest of the camp on Thursday night.

Jenny said she wanted to come out looking like a supermodel.

"It's an extreme diet plan. I'm actually incredibly selfish and spoilt and I'm very used to walking to my fridge and picking," she said. "The reason I've got to come here actually is to drop a dress size before Christmas. I'm going to lose so much weight in there, I'm going to come out looking like Elle Macpherson."

Dom could cause sparks to fly in the bush because he admits he is confrontational - and hopeless in a team.

The star - who found fame on stunt show Trigger Happy TV - said: "I am very confrontational. I wouldn't argue just for the laugh, but if someone p***ed me off, I would say it. I am a solo person. I am not really a team player."

Before they joined the rest of the camp, Jenny and Dom had to try to spend three hours in a spooky shack for their debut challenge.

The task became increasingly tough as they were given regular deliveries of jungle critters which were introduced to their temporary home.

Each half hour they endured earned a meal for the camp.
