I’m A Celeb’s Caitlyn Jenner predicts she’ll win after missing out on 2003 crown

I'm A Celebrity star Caitlyn Jenner is convinced she's got what it takes to win the show after narrowly missing out on the crown in 2003.

The athlete-turned-reality star, 70, competed on the US version of the show 16 years ago and is now back for a second stint in the jungle.

Her first time on I'm A Celeb was when she was still known as Bruce Jenner, before coming out as a transgender woman in 2015.

She's now competing for the first time as Caitlyn, and she's hoping too do even better than before.

During an interview played on This Morning today, the former track star said: "Well I've been in the public eye back since 1976.

"But uh you know recently, there's been a few changes. All for the better!

"I did this show 16 years ago… God, 2003 the US version. I did fairly well.

"I made it all the way to the finals. But that was Bruce, today's Caitlyn's here!"

Caitlyn was the second star to arrive Down Under as final preparations get underway for Sunday's big launch.

She'll be competing against stars including former footballer Ian Wright, and ex-EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa.

She previously starrated alongside US stars including Jennifer Lopez's ex-husband Cris Judd, model Tyson Beckford, and Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa

It was the first season of the American version, and Caitlyn was seen taking part in Bushtucker Trials and even winning in one particularly messy challenge involving chicken feathers.

She made it to the last week but was pipped to the final three by comedian John Melendez, Melissa Rivers and Cris Judd, who won.

The show, which was also filmed in the Australian jungle, returned for a second season in 2009, and featured stars including Janice Dickinson, Daniel Baldwin, and Heidi Montag.

It was won by Lou Diamond Phillips, but wasn't renewed for series three.

The opening episode of I'm A Celebrity airs next Sunday night at 9pm on ITV.
