It’s snakes and swaggers as I’m A Celebrity’s Caitlyn Jenner faces fears

And Esther is fully supportive of her daughter's decision to do that, as well, saying that being transgender "is nothing she asked for, it's a condition and it starts in the mother's womb".

Caitlyn Jenner has reportedly agreed to participate in an Australian reality show, only to get out of the US, in which she has not been feeling well lately.

But she pushed through, going on to take her first jungle shower and complete a bushtucker trial which involved being covered in cockroaches.

In fact, Esther was so adamant in not knowing what Caitlyn might experience that she shut down the interviewer for trying to explain some of the show's signature challenges.

"That's not entertainment to me, to see somebody frightened", Esther continued.

You could nearly have missed the moment if you weren't paying attention, and Caitlyn barely seemed to react to it. "I've got to live without hearing from her".

Esther reveals, "When she's in the States she calls me nearly every day".

"I'm 70-years-old now and is being in here the right way to use my time".

Soap star Jacqueline Jossa, 27, was next up, and as she donned a helmet filled with spiders, she whimpered: 'I feel like this is too soon to cry but I'm going to cry'. "My big worry is she may get bitten by a snake or a poisonous insect".

Jenner, the youngest daughter of Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, has more than 270 million social media followers and rates as "one of the most influential voices among beauty consumers globally", said a statement from both companies.

Jenner revealed: "I thought I was gonna transition before I was 40, I didn't want to be an old chick but this is the latter 80s and I never felt like I fitted in anywhere".

Despite her disapproval of the show, she thinks Caitlyn has a chance at winning the show, she said: "The thing about Caitlyn, and I know her well, is that she has a lot of determination".

The insider shared: "She is going to remain just as hands-on with the line, but she made a decision to team up with Coty in order to continue growing her empire".

I'm A Celebrity airs on ITV at 9pm tonight.
