Linford Christie thinks Gillian McKeith got what she wanted

I'm A Celebrity... star Linford Christie has said his former campmate Gillian McKeith got what she wanted with her dramatics in the jungle.

The Olympian claimed that McKeith wanted to make newspaper headlines during her time in the show.

Speaking on Daybreak, Linford said: "She achieved what she wanted to achieve because we are talking about her now.

"She was the most talked about person for the first week or so but I just had to do my bit for the team, I wasn't worrying about how she performed.

He added: "There were times when she didn't get us enough food to eat but I was always willing to step in and try my best for the team."

Christie singled out Stacey Solomon and Kayla Collins for praise, claiming the former X Factor finalist may win the show.

He said: "Stacey is a really nice, down to earth girl and totally underestimated.

"I think she will be the one to come out on top. I am this big strong lad and there were times when I felt down and Stacey was the person I went to and she consoled me.

"She's always happy and that's the good thing about her, being in there can be an emotional rollercoaster but Stacey was always there to cheer you up and to put you back on the right track."

Speaking about Collins, he added: "We got on really well, there's a certain feistiness about Kayla and she's very determined and I think she's got a good outside chance."
