Frost Report 

If you've been looking forward all year for your chance to watch a bunch of top quality celebrities humiliate themselves in the Australian outback then, well, you've still got a bit of a wait ahead of you, as this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here contestants make last year's selection look like the Hollywood A list. But! In amongst this collection of non-entities whose own mothers would struggle to recognise them is none other than Jenny Frost, formerly of Atomic Kitten and, if releasing one flop single counts as a solo career, formerly of that as well.

Of course, she's not the first ex-Kitten to try her hand at jungle survival. Kerry Katona McFadden Katona took part a couple of years ago and, after actually winning the bloody thing, suddenly found a whole new treasure chest of career opportunities ahead of her. So who can blame Jenny for wanting to give it a shot as well, after all, the prospect of appearing on Loose Women every now and then and getting a deal to appear in a selection of 'hilarious' ads for a cheap frozen food store are now as attractive to her as glittering airplane wreckage is to a magpie, though the latter does stand slightly more chance of getting of the ground.

Anyway, as our Kenzie Watch feature was such a success at the start of the year, and because we haven't had an original idea since then, starting from Monday we'll be bringing you the Frost Report, keeping you up to date with all of Jen's antics in the jungle. We're hoping for excitement and fireworks, but given her past history, banality and a desire to wear as few clothes as possible seem most likely. At least she won't be too squeamish about having to put bugs in her mouth; it's unlikely to be the first time she'll have swallowed something unpleasant to get ahead in her chosen career.
