ove over Myleene Klass – there’s a new bikini babe on the block and she’s ready to steal your beach bod crown. Armed with her very own white swimwear, Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter, 27, is set to get pulses racing in this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here. But unfortunately for the males in the camp, Jorgie is rumoured to be dating Northampton Saints rugby star Luther Burrell, also 27, and says she won’t be tempted to stray in the jungle.
Speaking exclusively to new! at a hotel on the Australian Gold Coast, Jorgie – who played Theresa McQueen in the soap for seven years before announcing she was leaving at the end of this year – is in a giggly, effervescent mood ahead of her jungle stint. Here we grill Jorgie on her fears ahead of the show and what’s really going on with the new man in her life… Are you excited or nervous about heading into the jungle? I’m both. I’m everything. I’m excited. I’m happy. I’m nervous. I’m itching to get in there.

Are you hoping to keep yourself occupied in camp by chatting to a nice man… Yes, probably. Hopefully there will be lots of them in there! You said you’re single… Yay! But you’ve also been linked to rugby player Luther. Is that no longer on the cards? I don’t know. I guess we’ll see. What happened with the guy you got together with on Celebrity First Dates? Craig and I literally just hung out twice. Once was on the show and the second time was after the Inside Soap Awards do. He wasn’t my boyfriend. It was just a second date. That was it really. It didn’t go any further, which is a shame – but these things happen. Do you still speak to Craig? No. Is it because you met this rugby ace? No. I stopped talking to Craig before I met someone else.
Before you met Luther? Erm… Maybe! Is Luther your type? Do you go for hunky, muscly guys? He is definitely my type. But it’s very early days, so I don’t want to talk about him too much. I could go in the jungle and do something really ugly and he might be put off me for life! How have you left things with Luther? If there was a real hunk in the jungle, would you be interested? I’m not really that type of girl. If I like someone, I like them. I think I’m just into one guy when it comes to things like that. I don’t play around. How would you define your type? I like manly men.
I like huge guys who don’t pout, who don’t even pluck their eyebrows. Are you body confident? When someone takes a picture of your face and they ask you if it’s okay, I always think, “Well, it’s my face and there’s nothing I can do about it. Just take the picture.” It’s the same with my body. That’s the way it is. Can you tell us about the bikinis you’ve packed? I’m only allowed three swimsuits, but they get skimpier the more time I spend in the jungle! I’ve got a really cool one-piece and the other two are bikinis. Are you hoping to be this year’s Myleene in the jungle shower? I’m not really that clean a person, so maybe I won’t wash myself that much! Are you going to miss all the make-up and the moisturiser? I’m sitting in my hotel room putting on so much make-up, thinking that I’m not going to be able to wear make-up for I don’t know how long.
There’s so much on me it looks like I’m in drag! What are you taking as your luxury item? Mascara. But now I’m thinking, “Why am I doing that? It’s the most useless thing ever!” Since you arrived in Australia, there have been reports of a spat between you and former Hollyoaks co-star Stephanie Davis. What happened? I’m just experiencing my own journey at the minute. I don’t want to say anything really. I’m just having a great time with what I’m doing. Is it true that you had a bit of a fallout? I’d rather not say. I don’t want to say things about her.
