FROM packs of screaming girls to the depths of the Australian rainforest- Kian Egan has been tipped to be crowned the ‘King of the Jungle’ by his friend Kathryn Thomas.

The former Westlife crooner is a contestant on this year’s series of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’, and RTE’s ‘The Voice’ host Thomas has predicted he will do “really well.”

“The only thing is the audience want to see the annoying people or the funny people or the scared people do the ‘Bushtucker trials’.

“But Kian will be up to doing anything, so I think it will be awhile before we see him eating testicles, or whatever they do.

“I think, out there, he is going to do really well,” the 34-year-old Carlow woman said.

Adding: “I think he is a legend.”

A coach on ‘The Voice’, the Sligo man has gained a reputation as being quite direct with the contestants, and Thomas said that he “has no fear.”

“He has no fear, he shoots his mouth off without thinking about it, and he has got balls as they say.

“It’ll be great for people to see another side to him.  And, I think he said he has this ‘boy band’ image,” she said.

However, she revealed that her colleague really is a “sweetheart.”

“He’s a very good person, and he is a sweetheart, so he will mind everybody out there as well.”

Kian (33), entered the jungle with the contestants on Sunday evening, and has yet to be voted to participate in a ‘Bushtucker trial’. 

Last night, viewers saw him beat reality star Joey Essex in a challenge, and won a kangaroo dinner for his camp, their first since meal since they arrived in the wild last weekend.
