Jo Beth Tay­lor must steer clear of the un­re­pen­tant Lau­rina Fleure on I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out

Of Here!, says UK chore­og­ra­pher Bon­nie Lyth­goe.

Lyth­goe, who was elim­i­nated on Sun­day, says Tay­lor could be the first con­tes­tant to ask to leave if she lets Fleure get un­der her skin.

Fleure’s abil­ity to grate with other con­tes­tants has been ev­i­dent. On Sun­day she had con­fronta­tions with Brendan Fevola, An­thony Cal­lea and Val Lehman. Lyth­goe says the for­mer

Bach­e­lor con­tes­tant doesn’t know how to say sorry and doesn’t un­der­stand when she is wrong.

“I got a feel­ing her up­bring­ing has al­ways been ‘I’m num­ber one and I’m very im­por­tant and I will have my say what­ever’,” Lyth­goe says.

“She has just got a mind of her own and I’ve tried so many times to say, ‘Lau­rina try and be a team mem­ber’.

“No­body likes to be spo­ken to some­times, the way Lau­rina speaks to you. You can’t help but an­swer back.”

Lyth­goe was a sound­ing board for Tay­lor, who had a ma­jor con­fronta­tion with Fleure early in the se­ries about a miss­ing com­mu­nal camp mir­ror.

Fleure took the mir­ror for her own needs. Tay­lor needed it to re­move her con­tact lenses.

“I fear for Jo Beth. I’m hop­ing and pray­ing she bounces back. She was very low to­day and was cry­ing,” Lyth­goe says.

“When Jo Beth and I were do­ing the dishes, An­thony would come and talk to us, so I’m hop­ing he will talk some good sense into her and make her stay.”

What made Lyth­goe think Fleure was self-cen­tred and lacked the abil­ity to iden­tify when she was wrong was her re­sponse to tak­ing the mir­ror. “She didn’t re­alise it was some­thing she needed to worry about. It was thought­less,” Lyth­goe says.

Lyth­goe was elim­i­nated af­ter a three-week stay in camp and, de­spite be­ing mainly fed rice and beans, she lost only 2.6 kilo­grams.

She at­trib­uted her small weight loss to the fact she only ever has small meals and the ra­tions didn’t ef­fect her as much as some of the oth­ers.
