I’m A Celebrity star ‘FORCED’ to have a shower on the show

And Joe Swash didn't want to wash either

If we were stuck in a remote jungle, we wouldn’t fancy taking our clothes off for a shower – you never know what might sting your bum.

And it sounds like we’re not the only ones to be put off the idea. Last year’s winner Scarlett Moffatt revealed on yesterday’s I’m A Celebrity Extra that she was so reluctant to have a wash during her time on the show, she was ORDERED to get under the shower.

And the 27-year-old presenter also lifted the lid on the threadbare ‘hygiene kit’ that each celebrity is allowed to take into the jungle with them.

Geordie Scarlett was discussing life in the jungle with co-hosts Joe Swash and Joel Dommett, as well as guests Richard Madeley and Maya Jama.

And she admitted that, despite being constantly covered in mud and slime, she was reluctant to strip off for a cleanse.

The former Gogglebox star laughed: “I had to get told by Medic Bob to go in the shower!”

Joe then mocked his co-presenter by saying: “Imagine being medically told to have a wash,” causing Scarlett to retort: “Hey, don’t judge!”

Anyway, Joe can’t really talk. The former EastEnders actor competed on I’m A Celebrity in 2008, and he admitted last night that hygiene wasn’t high on his list of priorities either.

The 35-year-old confessed that he “didn’t wash my body, let alone my clothes”.

Scarlett then described what the stars of the show are allowed to take into the jungle with them.

She said they were permitted three lots of underwear, three lots of swimwear, a disposable razor, a tiny hand mirror and a comb.

But the presenter explained that she couldn’t use the comb because she had extensions in, which led to a rather gross discovery when she returned to the UK.

She revealed that when she had her extensions removed, she found “two meal worms and half a cockroach in her hair”.

As the room erupted in laughter and disgust, Maya quipped: “I’m surprised you didn’t get held back!”

Meanwhile, Scarlett and Joel have been spotted enjoying some time together on a beach close to the ITV set.

Joel stripped down to his bare chest but Scarlett remained covered up in a beach dress. Guess some things haven’t changed…
