I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Gillian McKeith has claimed she’s pregnant in an attempt to escape from jungle jail.

The 51 year old’s claim comes after a week of bizarre behaviour which saw her reduce Stacey Solomon to tears after the onetime X Factor contestant suggested McKeith should “quit the jungle” to avoid fainting in front of her children.

The You Are What You Eat presenter apparently shouted out that she was pregnant after being banged up behind bars with Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder and Paul’s ex Sheryl Gascoigne.

The three were locked up after they cheated at a Kangaroo Court challenge.

McKeith, who has been looking increasingly exhausted and drawn, has sparked fears about her mental health.

An ITV source dismissed her pregnancy claims as ‘a joke’.
