Colin is out of the Jungle...


Following his loss to Eric Bristow in a Bushtucker Trial "head to head", Colin Baker had to leave the "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" jungle tonight.  In typical fashion, Colin seemed more concerned with finding the large stars which meant meals for camp rather than the small stars which were needed in order for him to stay in the jungle.

Colin revealed that he would like Eric Bristow to be crowned King of the Jungle despite his bond with chef, Rosemary Shrager.  Talking about Eric, Colin said "I adore him.  In the early days, when I was struggling a bit physically, he was the one that helped me".  As for Rosemary, he said "she's the type that rarely exists anymore.  Those old films of the 50's, no nonsense women who stride about the place.   She's completely random as well.  Although she's a brilliant cook it goes everywhere".

Colin's aim when entering the jungle was to lose weight - and he's certainly achieved that.  Just compare the picture above, taken just before he entered the jungle, to the one below, taken just as he left:


Colin achieved something else as well - he showed everyone else what "Doctor Who" fans have known all along: namely, that he's a lovely man and an utter gentleman.
