  • I'm A Celebrity… South Africa star Fatima Whitbread admitted she spotted the celebrities who were worthy of winning the show while in the bush.

    The all star series of the hit ITV reality programme concludes tonight (May 12) and for the first time, one celebrity will be crowned the ultimate I'm A Celebrity legend.

    Fatima, 62, is amongst the stars still in the competition battling it out for the prestigious crown but revealed she knew which of her co-stars were "dead certain" of winning.

    "I didn't see anyone being desperate to win but there were a few that I thought were dead certs of being the King or Queen, like worthy of being that," the former Olympian exclusively told Daily Star and other press.

    Despite not wanting to lose, Fatima admitted the experience wasn't about winning but instead the learning side of things.

    She continued: "It's a hard one because I'm very competitive and I will give it my best but I'm not somebody who goes in and wants to win at all costs. If it's meant to be then it'll happen.

    "I'm not somebody who steps on other people's heads to get one up. Like everybody else, I wouldn't say I revel in losing but the greatest thing I took away from all my sport, and same with experiences like South Africa, is the journey of learning.

    Fatima first starred on I'm A Celeb in 2011 where she finished in third place behind former TOWIE star Mark Wright and McFly's Dougie Poynter.

    But it wasn't as simple as just landing a place on the show as the SAS star revealed she spent 11 years trying to get on.

    "For me it was a surreal experience the first time around," she told us.

    Fatima continued: "Once I heard about I'm A Celeb I was working relentlessly to get on there so it took me about 11 years before I did.

    "The experience was second to none. This time round, for me it was all about working with the other campmates and learning about who they were and what made them tick."

    She added: "It was about whether I could learn more about myself and being amongst all those people because it's quite a surreal thing to do. I was excited to go back into the bush in South Africa and have another crack at it."
