Caitlyn Jenner jokingly told her I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmate James Haskell not to ‘go down this route’ as she discussed her daily beauty regime.

The former Olympic athlete, 70, had a conversation with the rugby player, 34, in Tuesday’s episode of the ITV series where she spoke about how her morning routine has changed since she completed her gender transition.   

Commenting on Caitlyn’s polished nails, James said: ‘You’ve got the matching toes, pedicure, manicure set up.’

Caitlyn replied: ‘All I can say is, don’t go down this route. It’s too much work.

Laughing, James said: ‘It’s a lot of hassle, innit?’

Caitlyn said: ‘It’s nice to just go in and take a shower and walk out.’

James appreciated that it often takes men less time to get ready, saying: ‘Yeah, the female admin is a lot.’

Caitlyn said: ‘Takes you 30 seconds to get ready. I gotta get up an hour early.’

James replied: ‘That is a good point, isn’t it? Shower, wash your hair, foof yourself up.’

‘Oh my God yeah, wash your hair, that’s two hours,’ Caitlyn said. 

Elsewhere, Caitlyn also opened up about her relationship with Kanye West, who is the husband of her former daughter-in-law, Kim Kardashian.

The sports star expressed fondness for the rapper, who was supportive of her when she announced her gender transition.

Speaking to Adele Roberts, she said: ‘Kanye was very very good to me. I like Kanye.’ 

Earlier this week, Caitlyn discussed her transition, saying she originally thought she would do it before she reached her 40s. 

She confessed: ‘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.’

‘Running around town, what do you mean?’ Andrew Maxwell asked, prompting Caitlyn to confirm: ‘Cross dressing running around.’

Looking stunned by the answer, Andrew pressed: ‘So you’d cross dress in your car and drive around town?’

‘Yeah, at the time,’ Caitlyn said casually. ‘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.’

Gripped by the confession, James noted: ‘It’s interesting about wanting to express yourself and how hard it is in life wanting to express yourself, but having a thing where you can’t let it and that you have to drive around town.

‘I think the biggest thing about your thing is all those people thinking about not being able to do it is the fact they should feel comfortable to do it however hard it is because 99 per cent of the time it’ll work out alright.’

‘All my life I struggled with all of those,’ Caitlyn openly admitted in response.

She later spoke about how her transition had affected driving experiences, saying: ‘Then I got my first DWF, “driving whilst female”. I was driving my car and some guy in a pick up truck beeps his horn and you look over and he’s like blowing kisses.’

James asked Caitlyn if she had a music track she played while driving around town, to which she laughed and said: ‘Yes, Aerosmith’s Looks like A Lady,’ prompting Caitlyn and all of her Snake Rock campmates to sing the ’80s rock hit. 

Caitlyn was married to her wife of 24 years Kris Jenner at the time news first broke of her plans to transition. She has two biological children – Kendall and Kylie – with Kris.

The former sports star, who has other children from previous relationships, is also the former stepfather of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert Kardashian.
