Im A Celebs Carol Vorderman details sweet connection with winner Myleene Klass

Myleene Klass named I’m a Celebrity… South Africa champion

I’m A Celebrity South Africa welcomed some of the most popular stars of the ITV reality series over the years for an all-star adventure.

From former royal butler Paul Burrell to health expert Gillian McKeith, fans have loved watching the celebrities once again trying to face their fears as well as survive life in the wilderness.

Among them was former Hear’Say singer and TV presenter Myleene Klass who famously dazzled in a white bikini when she first appeared on I’m A Celeb in 2006.

As the series was filmed last summer, there was no public vote to declare the winner so it was instead up to the campmates and the trials to determine the result.

In the end, it came down to Myleene and Jordan but the former managed to dominate the remaining trial and was crowned the I’m A Celeb “Legend”.

Following the 45-year-old’s win, she was met with a flurry of congratulatory messages from loved ones and fellow campmates.

Among them was ex-Countdown star Carol Vorderman who she was delighted to see win the title.

What viewers may not have realised is that Carol and Myleene have a connection prior to I’m A Celebrity.

In fact, their link dates back prior to Myleene becoming famous thanks to music competition Pop Idol in 2001.

“I’ve known Myleene forever. We met when I used to host the BBC science show Take Nobody’s Word for It”, the 62-year-old explained to The Mirror.

“There was a paper engineering competition and Myleene won one of the awards when she was about eight-years-old.

“She made a Ferris wheel out of paper and it worked.

“We still love the photo of me presenting her with her BBC award. It’s very cute.”

Carol added: “She is great. And now she has won I’m A Celebrity South Africa, I really couldn’t be more pleased for her.”

Unlike Myleene, Carol didn’t make it to the final as she and Paul were eliminated in 9th and 10th position.

After runner-up Jordan, Olympian Fatima Whitbread came out in third place, followed by ex-cricketer Phil Tufnell.

I’m A Celebrity South Africa is available to watch on ITV X.
