Matt Hancock set for Im A Celeb grilling as Charlene White vows to ask questions

Charlene White has vowed to "constantly ask questions" during her time in the I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! jungle, so her fellow campmates could be in for a grilling.

The Loose Women panellist, 42, is set to enter the Australian jungle alongside the likes of Chris Moyles, Boy George and Olivia Attwood, with the launch show scheduled to air on Sunday 6 November.

Charlene is yet to find out who her campmates are, but there's no doubt she'll be surprised to see former health secretary Matt Hancock, 44, join her in the jungle and she'll no doubt be eager to ask him some questions.

The ITV news presenter said she has a "natural curiosity for people" and is eager to find out more about her fellow I'm A Celeb campmates.

Speaking ahead of her jungle stint, the mum-of-two said: "I have got a natural curiosity for people so it doesn’t matter who I meet on a daily basis it could be, I don’t know the security that has been working on this show, or people I bump into on the street, I am constantly asking questions because I love to learn about people.

"I think that you can learn a lot about life by asking questions and I think there is too much of a temptation for people to not be interested in other human beings, whereas I am of the opinion like ‘oh my God there is like a million stories in each and every one of us.’ Why do you not want to find out more about another person?"

Charlene and Matt could be set for a tense clash, as the star previously slammed "rule-breaking" MPs when her beloved great-aunt Dell passed away from Covid-19 at St Thomas' Hospital in 2020.

The TV star also opened up about the only thing that could bother her about her campmates, and it all comes down to hygiene.

When asked about what the worst type of character in the jungle could be, Charlene explained: "Oh there isn’t a worst character.

"Part of the work that I do as a journalist I meet fascinating people, interesting people and difficult people every single day.

"Working on Loose Women, we have such a plethora of personalities which is incredible. I think luckily my strength is that I have to work with different characters on a daily basis and not a lot fazes me to be honest.

"So I don’t really think there is a worst type of character, that is unless it was someone that wasn’t particularly that fussed by hygiene. I think that probably goes back to my Caribbean roots and having grown up in a Church where we were taught that cleanliness is next to godliness."

Charlene also opened up about her reasons for agreeing to do I'm A Celebrity, saying that when you "get into your forties and you don’t necessarily give yourself challenges anymore".

However, she insisted that after this huge challenge she will be back on Loose Women and ITV news within a matter of days.

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! begins on Sunday 6 November at 9pm on ITV.
