Words by Colette Carr
As Holly Willoughby’s much anticipated I’m a Celebrity debut finally arrived last night, the focus shifted from the This Morning star and onto The Chase’s Anne Hegerty, who won viewers over on the show’s opening night.
Entering the jungle with huge personalities including Harry Redknapp, Rita Simons and John Barrowman, Anne’s frank attitude about how she thinks she’ll do in the jungle, wit and honesty helped her outshine the others.
The Governess amassed huge online praise for being so forthcoming about her experience of being diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome in her forties and how she had to learn more about herself following the revelation.

As a parent of autistic children I know some of the difficulties they have to face in day to day life and watching @imacelebrity I have full respect for Anne Hegerty. Hoping this is going to be a amazing journey for her.
