How's it going, Crissy?
"I'm really well. I've lost one and a half stone in the jungle, so I'm really happy. My stomach has shrunk and I'm planning to keep it all up. I'm cutting out all the bad food from my life. I'm going to plan my lunches and get some healthy snacks to eat instead of pies all the time."
Most people can't wait to eat when they come out of the jungle. Was it different for you?
"When I came out, I had a glass of water along with some melon and grapes. I'm determined to keep the weight off, so I'm trying to be good. Fatima has been teaching me how to think about my body, so I'm putting her teachings to the test."
Did you go into the jungle to face your fears?
"I never had any phobias. If I did, I didn't know about them. I enjoyed every minute of the jungle. It was like being on my holidays."
But you didn't enjoy the dungeon with Willie…
"I'm a laughy, jokey person and I trust everybody. If we'd been in the dungeon for an hour or two, I'd have been fine. I would've returned to camp and said to Antony and Dougie, 'Oh, you swines!' But at the time I didn't know it was a game. I thought there was a thief in the camp and there were traitors who had lied, cheated and deceived. And now, because we couldn't name them, we'd been punished. I wasn't very happy that day."
You've been very open about the challenges you've endured during your life. Did you want to go onto the show to be an inspiration?
"Yes, I did. Things happen in life but if you keep moaning and groaning about it, you'll never get on. I can't change my past, but I can change my future. I don't ever want to be miserable or unhappy. I'm happy in myself and I like to make people laugh because I know what it's like not to laugh."
Antony was a bit mean behind your back after you did your stand-up routine in the camp. How did that make you feel?
"As far as I'm concerned, Antony has to live with that – but I'm sure he's the type of person who isn't bothered by it. He's let a whole lot of people know what he really is like. Keep your friends close, but your enemy closer."
On ITV2, you joked about wanting to send a sniper into the camp for Antony… Do you still feel the same?
"I love Antony, but now I know what he's about now. I'd never confide in him. I'd always be wary of what I said around him. Some people have a sting in their tail. For every rose there's a thorn."
Did a lot of people in the jungle have a hidden side to their personalities?
"Some people walked into the jungle very grand, but they couldn't keep their pretense up. Then they reverted to the people that they actually are. That was quite interesting to watch."
Who put on an act?
"Lorraine never. Willie never. Lorraine was true to herself. Willie was true to himself. And Fatima is 100% true to herself. She sticks to her guns and she won't bend. I love her for that. When she got that head-to-head challenge with Pat Sharp, I was mortified. It would've devastated me if she never came back. I got so close to her. I hope to be best of friends with Fatima for the rest of my life."
What have you learned from your fellow campmates?
"I've learned so much from the others in the camp. With Stefanie, I've taken away wisdom and I've heard lovely Hollywood stories about people she's mingled with all her life. With Sinitta, I've taken away her kindness – both inside and out. She's lovely. From Lorraine, I've taken lovely innocence. The innocence of Lorraine is beautiful. From Fatima, I've taken strength and focus. She said to me, 'You stay strong'. I think she's fantastic."
What do you think of Pat Sharp?
"Pat's lovely, but Pat is young at heart and he wants to stay one of the boys. We had Stefanie, Willie and Lorraine at the older end of the camp. Me and Fatima were in the middle. The others were all younger. Me and Fatima were the inbetweeners. No matter what we did, we always did it wrong. If I did the wood, it was too thick, too thin, too long, too short. If I did the water, I brought too much, too little or water with too many bits in it. In the end, I stopped doing anything. I thought to myself, 'I'm on my holiday now'."
Who was telling you off?
"Everyone wanted to prove something in the camp, but there's nothing to prove. It's a game, but you don't know the rules or the strategy of the game. There's nothing you can do. It's not a race. You only have to be true to yourself."
What's next for you?
"I've got a new DVD out, and my autobiography is number two in the charts. The paperback is coming out in March, so I'm adding another chapter about the jungle, which will be great."
Sinitta loved your voice in the jungle. Would you ever consider a singing career?
"Sinitta has said to me, 'Do you know there are no country and Western singers from England in the charts? They are all American. Why don't you write some songs and make some money?' I'm not a money person, but I might see what happens there."
Will Sinitta put in a good word with Simon Cowell?
"Oh no. I think Simon would just kick my head in. I'm not in the league of The X Factor or anything like that. There are some fabulous singers on that show, but I just like to sing. I've been approached to sing 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' with Joe Longthorne for charity. That would be amazing for me. That would be for Cancer UK, which is what I'd love to do next."
You've also got a song on YouTube at the moment. Would you be shocked if that was the Christmas number one?
"You've got more chance of Julio Iglesias farting the 18th Overture getting to number one rather than me. It's not going to happen."
Would you be interested in following Stefanie to Hollywood?
"Oh no. Hollywood is not for me. Could you imagine me in Hollywood? They'd think I was Quasimodo's sister. I'd love to do more acting, but I'll probably stay close to home."
Do you want to do comedy or drama?
"Comedy was something that led me into an acting career, but I'd love to do more drama now. I'm also hoping to write a film. I became fascinated by a woman called Helen Duncan, who was tried during the war as a witch. She was a medium, but still to this day her name has never been cleared. It's an amazing story. I'd love to get that up and running. That's my next dream."
