Steve Price’s jungle shows are over
STEVE Price has hosted his last Jungle Radio show.
Price, 62, was a controversial addition to the cast from the beginning, known for his outspoken views on politics and various social issues.
He ended up however being a leader in the camp, much loved by most of his fellow celebrities and brining a sense of cohesion with his informative Jungle Radio interviews.
"I don't want to make a fool of myself," Price told News Corp Australia before heading into the jungle.
"My biggest fear would be the boredom factor. I'm not the sort of person that sits around doing nothing. I can't walk out and buy the local paper, that is going to be really tough."
Price got along with nearly all of the campmates, with the exception of reality TV star Keira Maguire, who nearly pushed him to breaking point and causing him to threaten to quit the show.
He stayed though and lost more than 10kgs in the nearly six weeks he lasted in the jungle.
"They are paying me to lose 15 kilos, how do you get a job like that, someone gives you money to lose weight and get healthier."
