The 21-year-old reckons she'll be well able for the competition.

"I'm a positive person and I think very positively. I am very competitive as well. I am very determined so that will be my secret weapon," she told the Sun.

Despite whatever the show has in store, she says her dad Danny is getting behind her.

"When I first told him, like any dad, he had his protective hat on and said, 'Don’t do anything silly.' Now he is getting it and he said 'It feels real now and I’m so proud of you.'"

Laura Whitmore is on board to present Survival of the Fittest and among the other contestants will be 24-year-old James Middleton, a sports media manager and ex-boyfriend of Made In Chelsea's Toff.

"I am open to love, definitely," he said of taking part.

"I don’t think any guy if they see a nice looking girl who they get on with and vice-versa is going to turn it down, despite the circumstances.

"That said, they will be the enemy so I’ll have to tread carefully."

Survival of the Fittest starts this Sunday 11 February on ITV2.
