While relaxing in a hammock in camp, Fred asked Jamie Lynn about her life back at home, and how her and Brit 'became so famous and so big'.

Jamie Lynn replied: “Oh, I always say this. My mumma, not in a cocky way at all, my mum literally believed we were the best in the world.

"I think we grew up, all we ever did was sing and dance, that was our whole household, that’s how we were.

"We auditioned for a show called All That and that’s when I was on All That for three years before I did Zoey [101]. It was very successful.

"After I finished Zoey, I had my love of my life, what I thought, I decided to keep the baby. I was 16.

"The whole world was like, ‘You’re a s**t, you’re horrible your life is over…’”

Fred then asked her: “Oh really? You felt it?”

Jamie Lynn responded: “Oh yeah. Because I got pregnant young and I was on a kids’ show.”

She said her parents had 'a lot going on', and that she felt they were 'sad' she was in that situation.

"It’s your baby having a baby," she explained.

"I had to go hide away for a long time because [the press] were relentless.”

Jamie Lynn went on: “I moved to Mississippi and literally hid. Put a gate around me. I had 20 paparazzi on me every day. They wouldn’t leave me alone.

"They came and lived in Mississippi, middle of nowhere. It was horrible. I hated it so much.

"I just wanted to be normal. I wanted my baby to be normal. Everybody told me I was going to be a horrible mum. So I was like I’ve got to raise this baby by myself and I did.”

As for where she is now with her family, Jamie Lynn told Fred that she'd spoken to Britney before she went into the jungle.

"I think every family fights and has their stuff but I talked to her before I came here and we love each other," she said.

Reflecting on the conversation in the Bush Telegraph, Jamie Lynn added: “I’m proud of where I’m at now. I don’t share it in a way of being sad or crying about it, but it’s like, I don’t know, I just… I’m really thankful.”

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues Tuesday at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
