Is TOWIE’s Jessica Wright Heading To I’m A Celebrity Jungle ‘To Show The Real Jess’?

Jessica Wright has just dropped a major hint that she will be joining the I’m A Celebrity 2016 line-up.

The reality star might be swapping Essex for the jungle; following on from her TOWIE departure last year, after a successful six-year run on the hit series.

The 30-year-old has admitted that she is keen to follow in the footsteps of her brother, Mark Wright, and that she would love to showcase her strength in the Bush Tucker trials.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Jess said: “I love reality TV, I feel Big Brother or I’m a Celeb would really give me the opportunity to show off the real Jess.

“TOWIE was great but it was edited down.”

We’re sure that the self-made fashionista would love to steal the ‘Queen of the Jungle’ crown from (last year’s winner) Vicky Pattison, but she has revealed one BIG problem… She’s terrified of spiders.

Keeping in mind that her former TOWIE costar and pal, Ferne McCann, had to eat a LIVE spider in a grueling trial on the last series, Jess explained: “I would be terrified of bugs in the jungle but I’d never let my team down. The way I would react to it would be an actual joke.

“There was a spider in my flat and it really freaked me out, it took me an hour to get rid of it. I love a challenge though so I’d battle through it.”

Mark finished as runner-up on the 11th series of I’m A Celeb, with Joey Essex landing in fourth place on the 14th series, and then Ferne made it to third place last year.
