Rebecca Adlington denies pregnancy rumours
The Olympic swimmer has been the subject of speculation after being made exempt from some Bushtucker Trials on medical grounds
Rebecca Adlington has confirmed that she is "definitely not" pregnant.
The Olympic swimmer, who was voted out of the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle last night, has been the subject of speculation after being made exempt from some Bushtucker Trials on medical grounds which remained undisclosed for the duration of her time on the show.
Appearing on Lorraine, the gold medallist pointed out that she wasn’t the only contestant to sit out and laughed off the rumours.
“Mo [Laila Morse] was excluded from a few, David, Matthew, myself,” she said. “I didn't know what the Trials were, I had no control over them.”
“You do the medical at the start and you can't do them, but it's definitely nothing serious and nothing to worry about, don't panic. And I'm definitely not pregnant - I wouldn't be going into the jungle if I was!”
She also opened up about her insecurities in the jungle.
“Everyone is insecure about things, and it's something that has definitely been a bit of a struggle for myself,” she said. “I know I'm not the prettiest of people, so of course I'm going to be insecure, and especially when people comment on things.
“It just happened that a topic came up about it and it does make me sad, it does get to me, it does obviously bother me, so I couldn't help but shed the tears unfortunately.”
Adlington, 24, broke down in tears on the show when she revealed she has struggled with abusive comments about her looks for years – and that she felt insecure next to fellow contestant Amy Willerton, who is the current Miss Universe Great Britain.
“It’s making me very, very insecure that I have to look [a certain way],” she told the camera. “For me, I was an athlete.
“I wasn’t trying to be a model, but pretty much every single week on Twitter I get somebody commenting on the way I look.”
I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV. The final of the series will air on Sunday.
