Jenner - who is rumoured to be earing a fee of £500k for her appearance on the show - took part in the US version of I’m A Celebrity in 2003, before she transitioned to become a woman. She said: “Tat was Bruce, today Caitlyn's here...”

Menawhile, Ian Wright and James Haskell screamed and leap out of their jeep after spotting a large spider on the windscreen on their way into the jungle.

The 53-year-old former footballer and 34-year-old rugby player were terrified, while their fellow camp mate Jenner sat calmly in the backseat.

After meeting for the first time the contestants were divided into pairs which were decided by the results of a swimming race.

Haskell came second in the race and chose 70-year-old Olympic gold-medal winning decathlete Jenner as his team mate, saying, “I'm going to go wth Caitlyn because she's got a pretty special athletic past so I think she'll be perfect for whatever you’ve got planned.”

But after Jenner made her first ever skydive into the jungle Haskell failed to be the fastest to extract tokens from a box filled with ants, crickets and spiders and the pair must endure the ‘Rough Camp’, sleeping on the floor with basic rations.

As Haskell rooted around inside the box of creepy crawlies he told Jenner: “There's something crawling all over my hand and stinging me.  I seriously picked you to do this stuff and all you’ve done is fall out of a plane, which my nan could have done.”

Jenner quipped: “I don't know about you but I could go for a beer... I would give you a high five but you've got ants all over your hand.”

Meanwhile, Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle and Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts and Rak-Su boyband singer Myles Stephenson and radio DJ Roman Kemp completed their challenges in the fastest time to become the Power Pairs and go straight to the main camp with real beds and a dinner of kangaroo steaks.

Also in the Rough Camp are Ian Wright and his partner EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa and Garraway and Irish comedian Andrew Maxwell.

Holding up his ration of rice and dried beans to camera, sportsman Haskell complained: “ I am worried about the ration sizes - I am on 4000 calories a day and this is a farce! I am going to fade away into nothingness.”

Meanwhile, Wright confessed he is hoping to lose weight on his stomache and his bottom, adding: “It’s going to be beautiful.”
