Emmerdale star vows modesty in the jungle as show set to begin

Lucy Pargeter says viewers don't want to see her breasts on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.

The 'Emmerdale' beauty is planning to keep covered while she's in the jungle as part of the reality show, and she insisted she'll be doing her best to avoid any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.

She told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "You don't want these bad boys popping out when I do a task."

To retain her "modesty", the soap star joked she'll be avoiding bikinis until the jungle diet means her "ribs start showing" - although she fully intends to put the weight back on once her time on the show comes to an end.

She said: "I'm not confident in a bikini. I will probably wear a modesty smock all the time - even in the shower!

"Maybe it will be all right after lack of food - when my ribs start showing. It's the baby belly thing that if I could be arsed I'd get back into shape but I'm not.

"I'm not worried about losing weight. When I get out I'll whack it back on again! It's something I'll look forward to - being able to pig out when I do get out."

The 2013 line up

Rebecca Adlington, former Westlife star Kian Egan and 'EastEnders' actress Laila Morse are among the contestants taking part in this year's 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'

The line-up also includes 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' star Alfonso Ribeiro, snooker ace Steve Davis, reality TV star Joey Essex and 'Emmerdale' actress Lucy Pargeter.

AND, we can all look forward to plenty of this from tonight onwards when I'm a Celebrity starts
