When asked if she thinks they will find it difficult to integrate, she said: “I think it probably will.

“The first ones have been in there from the beginning and you’ve just got that bond. It’s hard to break into it.”

Nadine Coyle, who appeared on the show last year, added: “What happens is you’re raging because you think, they’ve just left the hotel.

“They’ve eaten, they smell fresh, [you’re thinking] what did you have for breakfast?!

“There’s a feeling of, you just know that you’ve been in there so much longer and they.”

At the end of Tuesday’s episode of I’m A Celeb, Russell and Ruthie spoke about entering the castle.

West End star Ruthie said: “There’s a big difference in the known and the unknown and we’re in the unknown.

“It’s really a bit scary. Going in late you’re suddenly feeling much more on show. You’ve got to bring something to the table.”

Russell added: “Don’t think it’s going to be fun at all. I don’t really want to think about the bugs at the moment.”

Meanwhile, tonight, Russell and Ruthie will face their first Bushtucker trial, Stage Fright.
