“I’ve never quit at anything I’ve ever done and I’m thinking maybe it’s time I learned how to do that!”

In the morning rugby player James Haskell asked Jenner: “Did you wake up this morning and think ‘OMG, it’s real, I’m actually in the Jungle with all these idiots?’”

Jenner replied: “No actually, I woke up in the middle of the night. I had a tough night.”

Later the Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete opened up to the rest of her campmates about transitioning to become a woman. She completed gender reassignement surgery in 2017. From 1991 to 2014 she was married to Kris Kardashian, with whom she shares daughters Kendall and Kylie.

Jenner revealed: “I thought I was gonna transition before I was 40, I didn’t want to be an old chick but this is the latter 80s and I never felt like I fitted in anywhere. I was trying to figure myself out, running around town, cross dressing, running around.

“At the time, I had a turbo Porsche and it was like the day before Halloween and this car pulled up beside me and it’s my next door neighbour... I said I was going to a Halloween party!”

She revealed that when she cross dressed in her car she would drive around to Aerosmith’s Dude (Looks like A Lady).

Jenner added: “When I saw Steven Tyler [lead singer of Aerosmith] I told him that.”
