The I’m A Celebrity star was making the most of her time on set by admitting her new crush
Vicky Pattison developed an unlikely crush on Ant Middleton during her gruelling efforts on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The I’m A Celebrity champion joins 11 other stars on the endurance trial, with Ant back in his final stint as a chief instructor on the course.
But after the first long trek, which included a terrifying aerial walk and a long-standing trek across the Hebrides in the freezing cold, Vicky seems to have found something to heat her up.
As the crew packed in a truck to head back to base camp, she was seen telling her competitors that she’d taken a shine to Ant Middleton, despite his yelling at her.
Jake Quickenden told the group: “I never thought I’d be scared of another human – but I’m scared of Ant.”
“I’ve never been so attracted to someone but so scared of someone,” Vicky admitted.
“He terrifies us, but I’m like ‘you’re a f***ing lovely bit of kit son’. Do you know what I mean?!”
Jake then teases her, encouraging her to tell him, to which the giggly Vicky quickly shuts him down, saying it was never going to happen.
Somehow we think both Vicky’s partner Ercan Ramadan and Ant Middleton’s wife may have a few things to say if she did tell him!
But anything to keep your mind off the horrific course, right?
So far, Vicky seems more than up to the challenge of the eight-day endurance trial.
In the first episode along, Vicky and the rest of the competitors have taken on a series of trials including an aerial tightrope walk, a painful trek, freezing cold water and a challenge where they were exposed to CS gas – otherwise known as tear gas.

While Vicky seems to be smashing the challenges, others aren’t faring as well, with Ulrika Jonsson already having a bout of mild hypothermia.
Kerry Katona and Ore Oduba also failed the CS gas challenge, where they were required to rescue someone from a hut filled with the stinging solvent.
However, despite a tricky first day, currently none of the celebrity recruits have handed in their badge.
This series of Celebrity SAS, done in aid of Stand Up To Cancer, is the final time Ant Middleton appears as chief instructor for the course.
Shortly after filming was concluded, he was let go from the series.
Ant has since claimed he walked from the show, while Channel 4 released a statement to say it was to do with his conduct on set.
Ant has denied this, claiming any complaints made against him were the result of overhearing ‘military banter’ that was taken out of context.
While he admitted he may have been difficult to work with, he later blamed the ‘PC Brigade’ stopping him from working the way he wanted.
Ant’s replacement is not yet confirmed but is believed to be Jason Fox.
Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins continues Sundays at 9pm on Channel 4.
