I’m A Celebrity star Arlene Phillips has had a pretty difficult time since entering the Welsh castle.

However, Arlene decided to remain on the series alongside struggling campmate Naughty Boy last night (November 24).

Chatting to host Lorraine Kelly, Alana said: “They’ve had no food, it’s hard going into clink which looks horrendous. They’ve been thrown in hard.”

Abi added: “It was so nice to see her happier last night, going into the main camp and seeing everyone embrace her.

“That was so nice to see.”

While deliberating over whether to stay, Arlene previously admitted that she was cautious over her daughters watching at home.

Lorraine asked: “She was worried about you. Because you’re the worrier aren’t you, Abi?”

She responded: “Yeah massively, of the whole family. I just panic the whole time about unnecessary things so I think her knowing I’m gonna see her upset.

“She’ll automatically think I’m going to be worrying.”

Alana also revealed that her young daughter was watching her grandma on the show.

Arlene’s daughter shared: “Lila loves it and she keeps telling everyone her grandma’s in the jungle and she’s brave because she made friends with a snake.”

Meanwhile, it comes days after Arlene shared her doubts over remaining on the show.

It followed shortly after Naughty Boy was picked to take part in a trial by the main camp.

Arlene told her fellow campmates: “For me, I was hoping I was going to come out here strong and proud, but it hasn’t started in the right way.

“I find it unacceptable. I know that I can’t go on and my mind isn’t going to change in the morning, one night isn’t going to change.”

Thankfully, the choreographer decided to stay and reunited with her fellow campers yesterday.

Corrie’s Simon Gregson and Eastenders’ Adam Woodyatt will join Arlene in the castle tonight.
