Candice Warner gains a new perspective on her husband’s “sacrifices” while on I’m a Celeb

"I'm really looking forward to getting back and just being a better person."

Candice Warner became the second celebrity to be evicted from the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here 2024 jungle; an experience she has called “life-changing”.

Speaking to Chattr post-elimination, the 39-year-old revealed how she would now be implementing huge “changes” when she returned home.

“There is a lot of time to reflect [in the jungle] and you do reflect on your life. How you could have changed things,” the mother of three revealed. “How you could have approached things differently. What kind of parent am I? What kind of parent do I want to become? Am I a good wife and the daughter that I want to be to my parents? I mean, there’s so much downtime in the jungle that these are all the things that you reflect on.”

Being away from her children Ivy, eight, Indi, six, and Isla, four and husband David, was also challenging; however, it gave the former ironwoman a chance to look at her life, particularly focusing on the “sacrifices” her husband had made for their family.

“I now know how he [David] feels when he’s on tour,” she said, adding that he “misses out” on a lot of things.

“I now have a better understanding of him and what he’s been through.”

She continued: “I can now understand how he really feels and now, I might work things differently or make him feel much more included. I really hope that I can walk away from this jungle and implement some great changes in my life and I’m really looking forward to getting back and just being a better person.”

In addition to this life-affirming revelation, Candice also realised the hold her phone had over her, given she didn’t miss it at all while in the jungle.

“It’s too easy now to just sit at home and then just flick through your phone rather than having those conversations [with family],” she said. “I’m definitely going to be mindful of how much time I spend just scrolling and being more present for my kids. I don’t need to be on my phone and need to really be engaging with them, and to find out more about them and encourage conversation.

“It’s about talking to one another and, I think we forgot how important it is just to talk.”

Even though she’s desperate to get home, Candice admitted she will miss life in the jungle, the friends she made and the fireside chats.

“The conversations were quite wild and sometimes confronting,” she said before calling her exit “bittersweet”.

“You do really want to stay in and you really want to do well for your charity.”
