Share article:

Fleur East's mother wanted her to take cream crackers as an "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" snack.

The 31-year-old star headed to the Australian jungle last year for the ITV reality series, and she admitted her mum Irene was insistent on her taking the questionable luxury into camp.

Speaking on the Hits Radio "Breakfast Show", the host laughed: "I remember before I packed to go to the jungle, my mum was like, "Take some cream crackers".

"I went, "Cream crackers, mum? To the jungle?" She said, "You never know what food might be in the jungle, you might need some cream crackers". I'm like, "Mum, I don't think I'll be needing dry cream crackers in the jungle." "

Meanwhile, the former "X Factor" runner-up revealed her mum has a knack for overpacking for her own trips, and she turned up to Fleur's house this week with a lot of luggage - and a large fruit.

"Then she got to my flat and opened up the suitcases and she had a melon in one of them that she felt the need to bring with her. I don't know, a watermelon. I know... It's just unbelievable."

Fleur has previously heaped praise on her mum for being a "big influence" on her as a person.

She said: "I think in my life my mother is a big influence. She is someone who is very resilient, determined, no matter what knocks her down she just gets back up, she's just so positive and she taught me to live that way so she's a huge inspiration."
