Matthew Wright, 48, TV presenter
Who? Matthew is notorious as a gregarious and outspoken Channel 5 talk show host on The Wright Stuff.
Why take part?: He wants to “deal with issues” ranging from a fear of creepy crawlies to an uneasiness with heights. “I am quite a fearful person underneath my tough, journalistic exterior. I have to put a stop to it and this is my decision.”
What he says: “A mate of mine is an amateur arachnologist and he has given me a link to an animated film that is apparently very good at helping people with their fear of spiders - I am going to give that a go.”
Most likely to humilate himself: Squealing at spiders and putting people in their places.
Phobias: As above, Matthew is "absolutely terrified" of spiders. "You have never seen anyone quite as frightened as me."
Ideal campsite comrade: Keith Richards, Kate Moss or Cara Delevingne. Sinitta and Helen Flanagan can stay away, he says.
Looking forward to: Conquering his fears and enjoying the great outdoors. Matthew has been out in the woods with Ray Mears and his a keen fly-fisher, so he should enjoy jungle life.
Odds of a jungle romance?: Matthew is married to wife Amelia.
