Rumours are circulating that Gemma Collins is set to return to the I'm A Celebrity jungle. Is this Instagram post telling us she might?
If you saw Gemma Collins‘ stint on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! last year, you’ll remember her frantic declarations of having malaria, her complaints about the food and the fact that her eyeliner made her tears resemble gravy. But for the last few weeks, rumours have persisted that she’s going to give jungle life another shot.
Last month, The Sun quoted a source as saying: ‘Although Gemma’s last stint in the jungle was a disaster, she made great TV. “Bosses are fascinated to see if she can overcome her fears and stay for the duration.’
Gemma herself even declared in an interview on This Morning in May that she’d be ‘a million percent’ willing to go back to the jungle ‘if I was ever given the opportunity’.
It seems like the opportunity may have indeed been given – and Gemma’s latest Instagram post might provide a vital clue.
The picture, of a seemingly innocuous cup of puree’d ginger, could mean that Gemma is on a health kick to prepare for her return to the Australin jungle. ‘Fresh ginger, the benefits are insane,’ she wrote in the caption. And really, she isn’t wrong.
Ginger has been found to be very helpful for nausea and digestive discomfort, as well as boosting the immune system. And what are two things you need if you’re going to live in a hammock for weeks and exist on a diet of live grubs? A resistance to sickness, and a strong constitution. We see what you’re doing there, Gemma!
Before we get too excited at the prospect of Gemma braving I’m A Celebrity… again, nothing has been confirmed either by the show or Gemma herself. We’ll bring you more ginger-related jungle news as it develops.
