Lady Colin Campbell has called on police to install a speed camera outside her castle after she was involved in a three-car crash.
The I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! star, her son Dima and their dog escaped unharmed from the collision on the A27 near Clapham, West Sussex, which is close to her home at Goring Castle.
Police, ambulances and the fire service were called to the accident, in which the driver's side of the 66-year-old's blue Audi estate was damaged and the passenger side of another light blue Audi A3 caved in and the engine separated from the bonnet.
Sussex Police confirmed no-one was injured in the crash on Friday, but Lady C warned that it was only a matter of time due to reckless drivers racing along the road.
She said: "I'm very concerned at the great speed that people use, hurtling down the dual carriageway in front of my castle grounds, completely ignoring the speed limit.
"The only thing that will prevent a similar incident in the future is the installation of a speed camera.
"This time we were all very lucky that no-one was killed or hurt - next time people might not be so fortunate."
A police spokeswoman said: "At 4.15pm on Friday 6 May, police were called to a collision involving three vehicles on the A27 Arundel Road in Clapham, near Worthing, West Sussex.
"Diversions were in place while the vehicles, which were two Audis and a Ford, were recovered and the scene was made safe.
"No injuries were reported."
Lady C is currently filming a new reality TV show at her home called The Lady In The Castle.
She found fame on the last series of I'm A Celebrity with her cutting put-downs, but left the show early on medical grounds. Former Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison went on to be crowned Queen of the Jungle.
