Fatima Whitbread shows off Olympian physique

Monday November 14, 2011

Fatima Whitbread has revealed what concerns her the most about her stint on I'm A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here.

The sportswoman is worried about leaving her her 13-year-old son at home.

She said: 'I am a single mum and my son and I have been joined at the hip.

'I have never left him for longer than 24 hours. I am sure I will put my head under the covers at night and there will be a few tears.

As the competition got off to a start, Fatima looked like she was exercising her worries away.

The 50-year-old put on a snow-leopard bikini and worked out, lifting logs, doing press-ups and pull-ups in her team's camp.

And her little boy Ryan – from her marriage to Andy Norman, the ex-promotions' director of the British Athletic Federation – was no doubt proud to watch his mum help her team win the first task in the jungle.

Fatima and Anthony Cotton, Benidorm star Crissy Rock, and Mark Wright won the contest which had them sticking their heads into tanks full of insects to retrieve stars.
