We’re only a few days into this summer’s Celebrity Big Brother, but Janice Dickinson is already backing ‘national treasure’ Christopher Biggins for the win.

The two bonded when they appeared on I’m A Celebrity together back in 2007, where Biggins was crowned King of the Jungle and Janice was runner-up.

Janice also has experience of the Celebrity Big Brother house, having been a housemate last summer.

Showing her support for Biggins as she appeared on ITV’s This Morning via a video link, the reality TV star said: “I heard my beau buddy Biggins is in [the house].

“Biggins to win, Biggins to win! When I spent time in the jungle with Biggins, we had our ups and downs.

“I visited him last summer in London and I have to tell you, he is a national treasure. He said, ‘We have a celebrity in the audience - it’s Janice, and how’s the surgery holding up deary?'”

Biggins has already played a key role in the house, being picked to be the ‘secret boss’, which actually turned out to be a big ol’ prank.

Away from CBB chat, Janice spoke to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford about her breast cancer battle, saying: “For the nine months previous [to diagnosis] I wasn’t feeling like the [usual] me, something was off inside my psyche.

“I went to my doctors and I asked her to do a series of tests and I asked her to do a manual breast examination and she found a lump…she said ‘something doesn’t feel right’.

“So I went through a battery of tests… and it’s for this reason that I appear in front of you today to share my experience. I implore all women to go get their breast examined and do it themselves.

“I went through six weeks radiation, which was very harrowing. But the radiation is over, I’m scot-free for the grace of Gods… so cancer-schmancer! But I really want to bring awareness to this and now I am full blown working in charge of working for all breast cancer charities because it is a serious disease that affects millions of women.”
