Kate Gar­raway’s chil­dren per­suaded her to take part in I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here.

Her young­sters, Darcey and Bill, even urged her to prac­tise by eat­ing slugs from their garden.

The ITV pre­sen­ter is ap­pre­hen­sive about en­coun­ter­ing some of the Aus­tralian fauna when she ar­rives in the jun­gle, par­tic­u­larly snakes.

But the Good Morning Bri­tain an­chor be­lieves I’m A Celebrity can be lifechang­ing and is look­ing for­ward to meet­ing her camp­mates.

Speak­ing to Hello mag­a­zine, she said of her chil­dren: “It’s all their fault.

“Darcey re­ally got into the last cou­ple of se­ries and kept say­ing ‘You should so do this mum’, and things like ‘You should eat that slug from the garden, or jump off of that wall, to prac­tise.’

“It’s been at­tri­tion.”

Gar­raway is “very ner­vous of snakes” and is “not a huge fan of spi­ders ei­ther”.

The pre­sen­ter is also not a fan of heights and ad­mits she is daunted by the show’s chal­lenges.

After talk­ing to the likes of for­mer con­tes­tant Peter An­dre, Gar­raway is hope­ful a war of she can ben­e­fit from the ex­pe­ri­ence.

She said: “It is an in­cred­i­ble show and also you get to meet ex­tra­or­di­nary peo­ple.

“I’ve never met any­one who said they re­gret­ted do­ing it.

“Peo­ple say it’s ab­so­lutely life-chang­ing and you get so much peace from be­ing out of con­tact with the world.”

The full in­ter­view with Gar­raway can be read in Hello mag­a­zine, out now.
