Louise Minchin looked back on her time on the 2021 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in a candid chat. The former BBC Breakfast presenter was questioned about her time on the ITV series by her longtime friend and weather star Carol Kirkwood.

The 53-year-old revealed she had a “good cry” while speaking with BBC triathlete presenter Annie Emmerson and Her Spirit co-founder Mel Berry.

Louise opened up about her experience as a campmate in the Welsh castle and admitted she suffered moments of difficulty.

It comes after Carol, 59, sent in a question to her former colleague’s Her Spirit’s podcast last week.

She asked: “What was your lowest point?”

“That’s a really good question Carol,” Louise replied.

“My lowest point was probably two or three days in [I’m A Celeb]. It was the impact of realising you were in for the long term.”

She went on: “There is no break in this. There is no contact with your family until you leave apart from that phone call which I miraculously won. I didn’t know that was going to happen.

“I think two or three days in I had a good cry in the Telegraph – which is the place where you go and talk to production but it is aired on TV.”

Louise added: “I definitely had a low moment there. I spent one night in a hammock, didn’t sleep and felt very sad the next day.”

The ex-BBC host also addressed her decision to quit Breakfast after almost two decades on the programme.

Her admission comes after the presenter was quizzed on her official exit in September by a viewer.

Louise admitted it took a “long time” for her to decide to quit the sofa for good.

She explained: “It wasn’t just months, it was probably even longer than that.

“In the end, my husband always said, ‘There will be a moment.’ And the moment was very specific because it had been going around my head so much.”

The broadcaster found that everything was “out of balance” and although she loved being on BBC Breakfast she had to leave.

Louise said: “In life, I’ve tried to be brave. I don’t even know if it was the right decision – I think it was but sometimes you have to jump off the ferry and that was the time.”

The mum-of-two recently returned to the red sofa for an appearance following her stint on I’m A Celebrity.

The on-screen journalist joined co-star’s Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt on the red sofa.

She said: “Hopefully, I can go back again but I don’t have that job. But to occasionally pop in – it was really special to do that.”

BBC Breakfast airs daily on BBC One at 6am.
