Countdown legend Carol Vorderman was reportedly the highest paid contestant on the 2016 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. Ahead of the latest series kicking off, the 60-year-old shared unearthed snaps of herself before she entered the jungle in Australia.
In one picture, the mathematician was seen beaming for the camera as she sat in the back of a car.
Appearing make-up free, she ensured she was prepared for the hot weather by wearing a thin shirt and shorts which showcased her desirable pins.
Carol went on to share snaps of herself on the flight to Australia and professional shots taken for the show.
In view of her 187,000 followers, she revealed that all contestants had secret photos taken beforehand and were flown out on separate flights to Brisbane.
The secret move was to avoid any of the celebrities landing at the same time and seeing who each other are.
She added: “After we’d all met… off we went (still in our posh frocks) to our first challenge.
“This one is after I’d “walked the plank” waiting to be whisked off in a helicopter to camp.”
Carol went on to say the show had changed her “so much”.
“I’ve become OBSESSED (almost addicted) to being in fresh air…. it’s like I’m suffocating if I’m in anywhere closed in like a studio nowadays for more than an afternoon.”
The mother-of-two added of this year’s cast: “Wishing everyone the best best best of love and happiness and screaming.”
Carol followed up her post with a video of her doing the plank challenge on the edge of a 32-storey building.
The presenter was the first celebrity to take on the brave task at the time, which she called “terrifying”.

She said of the challenge: “Omg it shook and shook and shook and my legs were strong but wobbling with the plank making it even worse.
“I was screaming and I could hear the producers screaming and well everyone apart from Ant and Dec were screaming.”
Despite her fears, Carol won the challenge.
She later became the fifth contestant to be voted off from the show.
