Over the weekend rumours surfaced about Kate joining the jungle-based competition this winter.
A source told The Sun: “Kate has always been relatable and game for a challenge but since entering her fifties she’s embracing all aspects of life and sees the Aussie jungle as the ultimate life test.
“She’s in great shape at the minute too so wouldn’t have any qualm about stripping off in a bikini and would be flying the flag for the more mature lady.”
As the talk of the office during this morning’s Good Morning Britain, she breakfast TV presenter dismissed the rumours.
Temporary colleague Jeremy, 53, continued to tease Kate, 51, about her joining this show this morning.
Returning from an advert break Kate announced: “We’re just quarrelling, by the way.”
Jeremy explained: “Alex is up here for two weeks on his own in a hotel, and I said I’d take him out for lunch.”
After inferring that Kate was jealous about the boys’ plans, she jumped in to say: “Jealous? You’re trying to shove me in a jungle and force me to eat bugs!”
Hugging his co-host, Jeremy continued to press Kate on the matter.
He continued: “Oh, I just want you to win!”
