The former Countdown star, 62, said the ordeal had been “even worse than it looked on TV” and made her feel “really vulnerable”.
During her time in South Africa she participated in a challenge during which she had to swim through tanks of water, which contained various creatures, to win stars for her camp mates. But she was unable to complete the challenge.
She told The Sun: “I was traumatised and my body went into shock afterwards.
“For me, it was even worse than it looked on TV. My two big fears are drowning and being trapped, so it combined the two.
“You saw a few tears on TV but it was like proper ‘from the belly’ emotion. It was just like this massive trauma, really. So I was quiet for a few days after that.”
She added: “This was the first time something got to me like this. It made me feel really vulnerable for the first time.”
In a post-show interview Carol admitted she “kept reliving” the trial in the tanks and admitted that, if she had to repeat the process, she would avoid going into the third tank
She also admitted that on the return to camp she was aware of a build up of emotion inside her and that the experience knocked her off balance for a couple of days afterwards.
The former Countdown star first appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016.
She said the trials on the South African edition of the show had been “a lot tougher” than those in the Australian jungle and the experience had been “slightly more intense” but “wonderful”.
Earlier this week Carol defended crowds who chose to boo Prince Andrew at King Charles’ Coronation on Saturday, as the King’s controversial brother attended the historic ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
On what was arguably the biggest day of King Charles’ life, all eyes were on the new monarch as he was formerly crowed at Westminster Abbey.
But while many gathered to cheer on the new monarch, a handful of fans were far less appreciative of his brother Prince Andrew including Carol.
Taking to Twitter to commend the actions of protesters in attendance, she wrote: “Andrew ‘I’m so honourable I had to go to New York to tell Epstein I didn’t want to be friends with him, after he became a convicted paedophile’ was booed by crowds as he arrived at Coronation.”
