You better watch out if you fancy taking on Fatima in the jungle. “I haven’t got a game plan for the Jungle but I am competitive,” she smiles. Well, you don’t win dozens of medals for your country for nothing, eh Fatima?

“I am an avid viewer of the show and it’s easy to watch it in the comfort of your own home. I am not sure what it’s going to be like embedded in the jungle – but I will give it my best shot!”
