I'm A Celebrity presenter Laura Whitmore has told how she feels sorry for the famous contestants being hit by high winds and rain as freak weather batters the jungle camp.

But the Wicklow beauty, who has fronted the aftershow of the juggernaut ITV series for the past three years, doesn't sympathise with the stars undergoing notorious bushtucker trials.

However, she said she felt for the remaining campmates when a storm hit their outdoor camp early yesterday morning.

She said: "The weather has been curiously capricious this year. During our late-night rehearsals I thought our whole studio tree-house was going to blow away.

"I was feeling very sorry for the campmates who have to stay down there 24 hours a day. At least I've a warm trailer and hot shower.

"The rain was so heavy that it creeped onto our studio floor and was pounding so loud on the roof during our live recording I could barely hear our panellists. Not what you think you'd get from a typically, gloriously hot Australia."

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old may be used to watching celebrities with rats, snakes and even crocodiles in their jungle trials, but she shed a tear for the first time on the who watching Kian Egan burst into tears of joy as he was unexpectedly united with his wife Jodi Albert last week.

"Kian's reunion with his wife Jodi had me crying my eyes out. I think this is the first time I've ever shed a tear watching footage."

She also said she had a soft spot for fashion designer David Emanuel but it is still very early to be picking a winner.

She told how she met up with Kian's wife Jodi and celebrity panellist Denise Van Outen for a meal this week.

She said: "The hosts of the show always stay quite a bit away from everyone else so I had a sneaky visit to nosey around the Versace Hotel where friends and family stay.

LUXURY

"ON THE COMING OUT SHOW IT ALWAYS LOOKS SPECTACULAR WHEN THE CELEBRITIES ARE GETTING THEIR FIRST REMINDER OF LUXURY. THE ROOMS ARE PRETTY BLING.

"The food on the gold coast is unbelievable. Denise Van Outen, Michael Vaughan, Andi Peters, Jodi Albert, her gorgeous sister Kellie and I met up for a delicious seafood platter on the marina,'' she said.
