I'm a Celebrity... South Africa stars Fatima Whitbread and Janice Dickinson have opened up about their time on the all-stars series.

Speaking to The Daily Star, they compared the South African series with their experiences on the Australian version – with the pair revealing that it was "much more pleasant" this time around.

"I thought the experience compared to Australia was much more pleasant," Janice explained, adding that she got along with her campmates better on the South African show.

Janice and Olympian Fatima competed on the regular version of the series in 2007 and 2011 respectively, before being invited back to take part in the new show.

Fatima added that she found this experience to be "much more competitive" without the inclusion of the public vote.

"It could well be that you're exiting the programme within a few days of you being there, whereas in 2011 it was all about the stars and getting food for camp," she said.

"Life in camp was completely different to my experience the first time around because you're living on a knife's edge because you never know when it's your turn to do a challenge."

When asked which camp was better overall, the pair were in agreement that South Africa came out on top, with Janice revealing that the new camp was "bigger" and "cleaner" then the one Down Under.

"If you ask me which camp I prefer it would be South Africa because the trials are far superior and much more planned out, much more entertaining," Fatima summarised.

"Everything about it was much more pleasant than Australia."

I'm a Celebrity… South Africa airs on Mondays-Fridays at 9pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
