Porter gets out of there before jungle show begins

TV presenter Gail Porter has pulled out of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! and is being replaced by a Playboy model.

Show sources reportedly said Edinburgh-born Gail pulled out late last night "without giving much of a reason".

The show's producers have replaced here with American Kayla Collins, 23, also known as Dollface, who was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month in August 2008.

One insider reportedly said Gail, 39, was "all set to go", but added: "Then she said 'no'. Often people pull out when they realise exactly how tough it's going to be."

Kayla, who has dabbled in acting, recently said: "I want to achieve a different level of stardom. I want everyone to know who I am."

The three-week series starts on Sunday and will see Collins and 11 other celebrities battle it out to be crowned king or queen of the jungle.

Last year's winner was TV chef Gino D'Acampo, who battled it out with professional snooker player Jimmy White and TV presenter Kim Woodburn.

Kim came second and Jimmy came third.
