Despite the jungle being a good place to shed the pounds, Mark joked he thinks cannibalism would be on the cards due to the lack of food in camp.

“The problem is when people ask me this, I say listen after three weeks in the jungle, cannibalism is on the cards.

“My dad was a butcher in the meat trade, I know how to butcher a carcass, so somebody better not annoy me in the jungle, especially if they muck up a food challenge!”

He then laughed off being the camp’s chef, as he joked: “No one would trust me with the food!”
