Mollie King has predicted her Saturdays bandmate Vanessa White will “throw herself in and do everything” on I’m A Celebrity – including eating the bugs.

White, 28, is one of the new crop of contestants who will brave life in the Australian jungle when the show returns on Sunday.

Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine, King said she “can’t wait” to see White in the camp.

“She is going to be brilliant. She’s so brave,” she said.

“I just can’t wait to see her do a Bushtucker Trial. She is going to be fab, I know it.”

She added: “Vanessa will really throw herself in and I think she’ll do everything. She’ll eat the bugs!”

King, 30, appeared on Lorraine with her Strictly Come Dancing partner, AJ Pritchard.

The pair have been at the centre of romance rumours, which came up when King arrived late for the interview.

The singer apologised to host Lorraine Kelly, explaining that she had overslept, leading presenter Dan Wootton to joke: “Does this finally prove that you are now not sleeping together? Because you weren’t in the same bed.”

King and Pritchard have said they are just friends.

:: I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! starts on ITV at 9pm on Sunday November 19.
