Giovanna Fletcher, 35, was revealed by her best friend Emma Willis to have been banned from taking a pair of cycling shorts into the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 camp. The Voice UK 2020 presenter had recommended the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast host take the extra clothing in her suitcase to protect herself from “bugs crawling up places” that are less than pleasant.
You can only take in the clothing they approve
However, bosses are said to have rejected the fashionable item, as the only clothing allowed is items pre-approved by the show.
Emma revealed: “She came round just before lockdown and I was like, ‘What’s your luxury item going to be?’ she didn’t know and I said, ‘You have to take cycling shorts – long cycling shorts!’
“She was like, ‘Why would you do that?’ and I said, ‘So bugs aren’t going to crawl up the places you don’t want them to crawl up!’
“She hadn’t thought about that and was like, ‘Oh my god, I need to take cycling shorts!’ – nobody wants a cockroach up the butt or any other orifice.
“But she wasn’t allowed because that’s clothing – you can only take in the clothing they approved,” she added to The Sun.
Emma and Giovanna have been friends for over 15 years, and the former was more than happy to provide her bestie with some tips ahead of her appearance in the 2020 series.
Her husband Matt Willis competed back in the 2006 series of the show and became jungle king.
Although Giovanna may not be able to bring in her first choice item, she could opt to take something more personal, as Emma divulged that she would “desperately miss” her three sons.
The mummy blogger shares six-year-old Buzz, four-year-old Buddy, and two-year-old Max with McFly husband Tom Fletcher.
Emma continued: “If she’s in there until the end that’s three weeks, and she’s also in isolation now without her children so that will be four – that’s a bl**dy long time for any parent.
“I have no doubt it will get to her and she will desperately miss them, but she watches I’m A Celeb every year and she knows exactly what she’s getting into.
“She’s pretty clued-up and a huge fan of the show, Dougie [Poynter, Tom’s bandmate] and Matt have been in it and won it so she knows exactly what to expect.”

Although Emma said that her husband did not have any words of wisdom to offer Giovanna.
She explained: “He didn’t give her any tips, he just said you’re going to have the best time of your life.
“It’s one of Matt’s most favourite experiences, he had the best time in there.”
It comes as Emma recently admitted that she prefers to wear the “same” pants every day as opposed to dressing up in sexy lingerie for her husband.
She shared that she had not worn a G string since her “wedding day”, as she prefers to stick with underwear that is more age-appropriate at 44.
Emma was chatting with Giovanna while making an appearance on Kate Thornton’s White Wine Question Time.
While Giovanna divulged that she had “ditched her bra”, Emma spoke openly about valuing comfort over style in the lingerie department.
The Big Brother host confessed: “I haven’t done sexy since my wedding day. Literally, my underwear drawer is 25 pairs of the same pair of pants,” she said.
