Caitlyn Jenner has opened up about how she is treated differently as a woman on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity…get Me Out Of Here as she spoke fondly about her fellow campmates in the jungle.

The 70-year-old – who had gender reassignment surgery in 2017 appeared in the American version of the show back in 2003 as Bruce, and she said as a woman, she is treated differently as she exclaimed ‘this girl thing is working out pretty good’.

Comparing her time as Bruce Jenner on the American show, Caitlyn explained how she ‘did everything for everyone’ but on the UK show, her campmates are always offering to make her cups of tea.

‘As Bruce I was doing everything for everyone, but here everyone is offering to make me tea.

‘This girl thing is working out pretty good’.

Years before she transitioned, Caitlyn appeared on the US show alongside the likes of entertainment reporter Robin Leach and actress Melissa Rivers.

At the time, Bruce got to the final week of the series but didn’t make it to the last three.

J Lo’s ex-husband Cris Judd ended up winning the spin-off, beating Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa and radio presenter John Melendez.

The star has also reportedly been ‘banned’ from spilling any family secrets about the Kardashians during her time in the jungle – despite talking about Kim in last night’s episode.

On Tuesday night, the former Olympian spoke candidly about Kim Kardashian not going to university and how she set up her first company, as well as her relationship with Kanye West.

Talking about how Kim got the business bug, Caitlyn recalled: ‘Kimberly never went to college. The minute she left high school she started businesses. She had her first business out of the closet.’

She continued: ‘Kimberly would go into the ladies’ closets. Some of these are like 2,000 square feet – they’re huge. Beverly Hills ladies.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to Kris’ rep for comment. 

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! returns tonight at 9pm on ITV.
