Frankie Bridge admits feeling ‘pressure’ to win I’m a Celeb after being made bookies’ favourite
FRANKIE Bridge has admitted she feels “pressure” to win I’m A Celeb after already been made bookies’ favourite.
The 32-year-old will be entering the castle this evening alongside a host of famous faces as they battle it out to be crowned King or Queen – but the Saturdays singer is already being tipped to win.
Speaking about how hard that is for her, the mum-of-two said: "I don't really like that. It adds pressure but it also doesn't mean anything. The great thing with I'm A Celebrity is people go in who you might not know and you get to know them in really weird situations.
“You don't know how people will like you a few weeks in. I feel more pressure with my friends and family. They love me and they're like 'you're going to smash it' and I think 'oh no, what if I don't?'”
She added: "I was one of the favourites to win Strictly and I definitely didn't so I don't think it means anything.”
Frankie is following in the footsteps of her husband, former footballer Wayne Bridge, who took part in the programme in Australia in 2016.
The star said her husband loved his experience which had made her curious about taking part.
She explained: "I've always been intrigued because I can't see how the two things add up, all these scary challenges and yet coming out and absolutely loving it.
