Val Lehman: Warnie will win I'm A Celebrity

VAL Lehman believes Shane Warne's victory on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! is guaranteed.

The actress, best known for playing Bea Smith on the TV series Prisoner, has spent the past five weeks in the African bush with the former cricketing star.

"I think Warnie will win; he has an enormous following," she told APN.

"The other guys don't have the same large numbers who follow them and support them that Warnie has."

Lehman was the first of the remaining celebrities to get the boot on the show's finals week, which will see one person sent home each night until Sunday's grand final show.

At 72, Lehman is one of the oldest celebrities to ever go on the reality show franchise.

She didn't bat an eye at the show's infamous tucker trials, the most recent of which saw her crawling through sewerage pipes with a crocodile.

"No that didn't bother me one little bit. It was just the terrible food they kept throwing at us," she said.

"My tummy was just about worn out with the bad food."

Lehman said she learned to be more tolerant of other people while living in the camp, although she still has nothing nice to say about former Bachelor contestant Laurina Fleure.

"People who got up my nose got away with it more than usual," she said.

"She (Laurina) drove me nuts - a vexation of the soul.

"She has two topics of conversation: herself and herself. She thinks the rules are made for everybody but not her and she thinks it's funny to flaunt them. She's very difficult to live with."

Lehman also said it was "outrageous" Fleure and DJ Havana Brown were allowed to bring makeup into the camp.

"It was very, very unfair," she said.

"They're completely self-possessed and if that's all they've got in their lives then good luck to them."

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! continues on Channel 10 tonight at 7.30pm.
