McFadden 'proud' of jungle crown

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winner Kerry McFadden said she had "no idea" what she would do next despite speculation about lucrative TV deals.

"I'm dead proud of myself, that's the one thing I wanted to do, 'just do this on your own' and I did," she told GMTV.

"It's still not hit me, I've not been out in society yet," she said.

McFadden, 23, wife of Westlife star Bryan, is being linked to deals to promote everything from pasta sauce to Simon Cowell's company.

The former pop star said she did not know what she would do now and was just looking forward to going home to Dublin at the weekend to see her two daughters.

In demand

McFadden said she was "heartbroken" before the show had even started because she didn't get a chance to say a proper goodbye to her husband and daughters, Molly, two, and Lily Sue, one.

"I thought no-one's going to be watching, I'm going to get no support, and I got so upset and so angry with myself because I felt such a failure.

"But I said to myself, 'Kerry, grow up, no-one else is whinging.'"

McFadden's agent told BBC News Online on Tuesday: "The phone hasn't stopped ringing since nine o'clock this morning.

"We've had loads of offers across the board, but it depends on how much she is prepared to do."

Mr Clifford, who acted as McFadden's PR for the two-week duration of her jungle trip, said: "Kerry could make, if she wished, a couple of million in the next 12 months from advertising, endorsements, TV programmes and presenting.

"If she wanted to take everything offered to her she could make a couple of million, but my instinct is she will only do things she is comfortable with."

McFadden was an original member of girl group Atomic Kitten and has appeared in various television shows since leaving the group in 2001.
