David Emanuel, 60, fashion designer
Who? David is Royal Fashion Designer and famous for creating Princess Diana’s wedding dress.
Why take part?: After beating prostate cancer last year, he wants to see whether he can survive the jungle too. “Had I not had those tests, I might not be here. What is there to lose?”
What he says: “It’s not going to be Vogue Magazine! But I will give it a shot. I don’t see the point of not giving it all a go.”
Most likely to humilate himself: Passing judgement on his campmates fashion choices.
Phobias: Everything and anything including claustrophobia, heights and creepy-crawlies.
Ideal campsite comrade: Anyone who hates bullying and bitchiness as much as he does.
Looking forward to: Challenging himself, then being reunited with his doves, bed and a nice hot bath.
Odds of a jungle romance?: David is divorced. “I’d like to think there will be a few pretty blondes in there who I can be a shoulder to cry on!” he says.
