The girlfriend of Hollyoaks actor Nick Pickard says she is urging his friends and family to vote for him to do a trial on I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! – so he can have the full jungle experience.
Sarah Corrin has been pleasantly surprised that her long term partner Nick, 48, who plays Tony Hutchinson in Hollyoaks, hasn't got 'hangry' in camp too.
Speaking at Brisbane Airport after she flew in to support him on Tuesday, 28 November, Sarah said: "I’m dead proud and I’m just glad people are getting to see the Nick part of him and not Tony."
Sarah added: "I’ve seen him to do some of the challenges but I’ve still yet to see him do a bushtucker trial. And all my friends and family are like what shall we do. And I say vote! Vote! And they’re like you’re not meant to vote him in and I’m like we are! I think he’d enjoy it!"
Going on to talk about Nick's hunger, which he was also worried about prior to going into camp, she said: "Do you know what the biggest surprise to me is that I haven’t seen him have a hunger tantrum. He is the most positive upbeat person you'll ever meet but don’t mess with him and his food.
"So I haven't really seen that so far. And when people are going off for the Trials he’s like 'Don’t worry if you don’t get all the stars' but I know on the inside he’s like inside, 'You have to get all the stars'.
Sarah said she "always knew" the Hollyoaks star would "do well" in the jungle. She continued: "I always knew he would do well in there. I’ve always wanted him to do it. His main concern was hunger.
"I tried to prep him with the intermittent fasting – sandwiches from the fridge and the rest. I’m really surprised that he hasn’t been more about the food."
She is hoping to relax on the Gold Coast for a week and then see her partner crowned king of the jungle.
She said: "I think he’s definitely got a good chance of winning. I’ve heard a lot of people say we’ve not seen enough of him on the screen but, yeah, he is what he’s like in person – just genuinely down to earth."
