Nadiya Hussain would "love" to appear on "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!"

The "Great British Bake Off" champion - who won the show in 2015 - would be up for the challenge of adding Queen of the Jungle to her previous reality TV triumph.

Speaking to HuffPost for BUILD, Nadiya said she'd be delighted to take part, and added: "I'm scared to fly out of a plane and stuff, but my goodness, give me a jug of blitzed up balls. No problem, I'll have "em!"

The 33-year-old baker explained she'd be well prepared for the eating challenges because "there's nothing" her family doesn't eat.

She said: "It's fun! When we first got married my husband said that eating at my parents" house was like an episode of "Fear Factor" because we eat everything...

Speaking about her struggles with anxiety on "Sunday Brunch", she said: "It's that feeling of... The only way I can describe it is, before I did "Bake Off", I never really understood what it was like to be on the other side of fear.

"I always kind of stayed away from being scared. So, if something scared me, or frightened me, or I thought it was going to make me feel anxious, I'd avoid it completely.

"So now if somebody says, "Do you want to do that?" I'm like, "That scares the life out of me... yes, I'll do it".

"And so, it's that feeling of being on the other side, and I think that when you have anxiety, you've got to push yourself and say you know what, I can be on the other side of fear."
