I’m A Celeb… 2010: Alison Hammond goes into the jungle today, in a crate!

Former Big Brother contestant and This Morning presenter Alison Hammond will today become the show’s 13th contestant when she’s ‘dropped’ into camp in a crate!

Two of the current contestants will discover Alison inside the crate as part of Friday night’s Celebrity Chest challenge.

35-year-old Alison told The Sun, “It’s not the best way to lose weight, but it would be great to lose a stone.

“I’ve been on a diet for the last six weeks and I have already lost a stone and a half, so if I can lose some more pounds, that will be fantastic.

“I can’t wait to be smaller and I really hope I will then be able to keep the weight off!

“Being in the jungle will give me time to think about why I do overeat.

“I also want to be proud of myself and achieve this. If I can do this, I know I will be able to do anything – like be a size fourteen.”

However, Alison revealed that no matter how much weight she might lose while on the show, she won’t be appearing in a bikini.

She said, “I will be covering my modesty. I am not going in there to get a modelling contract. I don’t think it’ll happen!

“I am not showing off my body for everyone. Can you imagine?! I don’t want to put that on the nation. I don’t want to scare everyone!”

Alison also went on to say that as she’s never been camping before, she has no idea if she will cope with sleeping in the jungle.

She said, “I’ve never been camping, never slept outside, never cooked outside and I want to see if I can do it.

“I want to have some fun and it’s not every day you get offered the chance to go on I’m A Celebrity.”

And on the subject of her unusual entrance into the jungle, a show insider told the paper that “evil” I’m A Celeb producers “couldn’t believe their luck” when they learned that Alison’s scared of being trapped in a box.

The source added, “They immediately got working on a large crate which she will be forced to hide in.

“It is genius, but Alison will probably not be very happy.”
