Away Camp Contestants Robert And Esther Missing Home

by | 18 November 2008

Robert Kilroy-Silk and Esther Rantzen, members of the Away Camp on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, have admitted to feeling homesick.

After model Carly Zucker said she was missing home and her husband, footballer Joe Cole, the TV presenters discussed their own depression over being separated from their families.

"I nearly walked in the middle of the night," said Rantzen.

Kilroy-Silk agreed, adding: "I was surprised everybody is so ebullient and I actually thought why am I here? Nobody's said that. We feel upbeat and positive."

However, he added: "I'm actually really missing my family. I have not been parted from my wife of 48 years for more than four nights."

TV veteran Rantzen continued: "In the middle of the night I just thought I'm not staying… I feel quite lonely and I realise so much my mood depends on people I care about and they're not here. But the people here are very nice."

Despite their loneliness, the mood of Kilroy-Silk, Rantzen, Zucker and their fellow Away Camp resident Nicola McLean was buoyed by their victory in the Bushtucker Trial.

Competing against former EastEnders actor Joe Swash, McLean was forced to eat a series of bushtucker 'delights', including crocodile eyes, scorpions, crickets, chicken feet, silkworms, grubs, and the testicles of both crocodiles and kangaroos.

If either passed on a course, they would have to eat the next meal set in front of them. They could pass again, but if their opponent ate their dish, they would lose the point.

And with Swash passing on the challenge of eating a chicken's foot, while McLean ate all five dishes, the Away Camp won the trial and their dinner for the evening.

The eighth series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! continues on ITV1.
