I'm A Celebrity 2013 contestants: Lucy Pargeter
Who has left luxury behind to face the bushtucker trials down-under?
Lucy Pargeter, 36, actress
Who? Lucy stars as Chas Dingle in the ITV soap Emmerdale and is taking part in I’m A Celebrity as a “spur of the moment” decision.
Why take part?: She always makes big decisions in her life in a split second but has admitted to being terrified by the prospect. “It’s good to make myself do something I would not normally do.”
What she says: Set to rival Joey Essex, Lucy is packing three bikinis. “I will probably wear a modesty smock constantly. Maybe it will be alright after lack of food. When the ribs start showing, I might put them on then!”
Ideal campsite comrade: Possibly Emmerdale co-star Zoe Henry, who has leant her a bikini for the show.
Most likely to humilate herself: Complaining about boredom as she can’t sit still for five minutes.
Phobias: None, bar being bored out of her mind.
Looking forward to: “Afterwards!” she jokes, sort-of.
Odds of a jungle romance?: Not for Lucy, she’s engaged with a daughter.
