A FORMER Norfolk schoolgirl will be swapping the studio for the jungle when she jets across to the other side of the world to present a popular television show.

Caroline Flack, 28, who used to live in Great Hockham, will be flying to Australia to host the ITV2 programme I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now, which appears immediately after the ITV1 I'm a Celebrity programme.

Ms Flack, who has been romantically linked to Prince Harry by the national media, but insisted that they are “just friends”, has previously presented Gladiators, Big Brother's Big Mother and children's show TMI.

Ms Flack, a former pupil at Great Hockham Primary and Wayland High schools, said: “It's more of a discussion show where we chat to the celebrities.

“It's normally filmed in a studio in London, but we will be filming it in the jungle this time and I am flying out to Australia soon for it, although I can't tell you when.

“It's filmed live and I'm really excited - this is my dream job. There aren't many jobs on TV, especially for girls, that are live and I think this one will have a really fun feel to it - it won't be too serious.

“I can't wait to see the jungle either; I think it will feel a bit surreal when I get there. The presenters get to stay in a hotel nearby which I'm glad about. There is no way I would ever live in the jungle.

“I won't be working directly with Ant and Dec - they are doing the main show - but I'm sure they will be there to offer me support and tell me what to expect. I've met them before and they're really nice.”

Ms Flack will be the show's main presenter, but will have support from comedian Russell Kane and former I'm a Celebrity contestant Joe Swash.

She added: “Joe will be in and out and Russell will be bringing the laughs to the show. I'm a bit nervous, but mainly just excited.”

In the show, celebrities live in jungle conditions with few comforts and have to earn human essentials. They have to complete Bushtucker Trials, which are physical tasks, usually involving snakes, spiders or other animals or insects.
