Meanwhile, speaking to Michelle, I’m A Celebrity star Sir Mo says of trying her husband Mark Wright’s exercises: “I swear down, no lie – I was fit enough – did it, and took my back out.

I’ve done about a stone and a half in weight.

“I wouldn’t dare to say anything, I just carried on. [I’m an athlete, but] when you deal with Mark you’re challenging every part of your body.

“It’s not just one part of your body, where you go, ‘I’m working on my legs’. You’re working on everything.”
