Strictly Come Dancing champion and BBC Radio Norfolk regular Camilla Dallerup is heading into the jungle.

The Danish dancer is taking part in ITV1's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, starting on 15 November 2009.

Camilla, who lifted the TV dance trophy with Tom Chambers in 2008, has hosted a number of shows on BBC Radio Norfolk.

The 35-year-old will join a squirming team of other contestants including actor George Hamilton, pin-up Sam Fox and ex-EastEnder Lucy Benjamin.

Camilla left Strictly Come Dancing after winning the title, telling this website at the time: "I've had a fabulous time on Strictly, five years and six series, but I'm a girl that needs fresh challenges.

"My mum always told me you should leave a party while you're still having a good time. After lifting the trophy with Tom, how could things get any better," she added.

Radio show

Camilla's last show on BBC Radio Norfolk was the Easter 2009 Special, when she was joined by her fiance Kevin Sacre.

"I love coming to Norfolk. I keep finding all sorts of random connections to the county," said Camilla.

Chef Tom Parker Bowles, tabloid journalist Tom Latchem and media GP Dr Rosemary Leonard were guests too and she also chatted to former Olympic swimmer and Strictly Come Dancing competitor Mark Foster.

Despite his long career as an international athlete, Camilla was quick to discuss a certain area of his body.

"I spent 23 years representing my country and now I'm remembered for getting my chest out," said Mark.

But perhaps her most special guest was former Hollyoaks star Kevin Sacre.

Kevin, who played the demented Jake Dean in the soap, has been Camilla's partner since meeting on television's The Underdog Show.

"We were wandering towards the studio together when Lesley Joseph said 'Here comes the lovely couple'. We looked at each other and I thought it sounded like a good idea," said Kevin.

Camilla presented shows on BBC Radio Norfolk after appearing as one of the star guests on the station's stand at the county show in 2007.
