The singer looked phenomenal in the white two piece which included high waisted bottoms and a cheeky scoop neck top which amplified her assets.  

She stepped into the ice cold water looking fresh faced and gorgeous with no makeup on and her hair swept into a bun but soon embraced the chilly waters letting her hair loose and lathering up in soap.

Alongside Nadine was 70-year-old Caitlyn, who donned a sophisticated navy blue swimsuit.

The reality star showed off her athletic frame in the open back flower print suit. The strappy costume showcased the stars toned physique with a modest fit despite low cut sides.  

The I’m A Celebrity shower scenes have become something of a legendary topic surrounding the show.  

Ahead of this years series premiering it was reported that camera men fought over who got to film some stars washing moments. 

However it was reported last week that the female contestants on the show are refusing to use the jungle shower, because they don’t want to ‘do a Myleene’.

According to a report from The Sun, celebrities like Jacqueline Jossa and Nadine were keen not to be on TV as they bathe during their time on the show.

However, Kate was said to have overhauled her lifestyle to get jungle ready and prepare for the iconic shower scenes – for which she packed a tiny bikini.

Her shower scenes comes following her two stone weight loss following a rigorous diet plan which included swimming, yoga and cutting down on alcohol and sugar.

The star started by sacrificing her Saturday morning full English breakfast, replacing it with healthy and protein-rich poached eggs and avocado.

She also ditched her pre-8am chocolate snacks, telling Fit & Well last year: ‘Because of the crazy shifts I do , I regulated my energy with sugar bursts.

‘I didn’t think I ate a lot of sugar but by 8am, I’d always had lots of chocolate. Now I eat avocados obsessively. Having avocados and and low-sugar foods help keep my energy levels up.’

Kate added: ‘I stopped drinking caffeine and now I eat avocados obsessively because I found one of the diets was high in good fat, medium protein and zero sugar – which is a bit extreme for me.

The star also recently told Closer Magazine she was inspired to cut down on alcohol after tests revealed she had fat around her liver. She started with quitting alcohol for a month before limiting herself to one drink at events.

‘I thought I didn’t drink that much but when you stop completely it is a shocker. You realise that a glass here, going to a function there, it all adds up.

Kate now only enjoys the occasional drink and blowout with her girlfriends. 

The star has also incorporated regular exercise into her everyday routine, with lots of walking, yoga and swimming on the agenda.

Speaking to The Sun in 2018, she said: ‘I turned 50 last year, and like many women of my age I struggle with my bottom sagging, tummy wobbling and flabby upper arms. 

‘I don’t want to look old in my advanced years so I go on a power walk for half an hour every day, and it helps to keep the pounds off.’

Calorie intake is only half the equation, and the presenter also signed up with a personal trainer and began running, doing squats, yoga – and the trendy hobby of forest bathing, a Japanese ritual that involves immersing yourself in nature and whose devotees include the Duchess of Cambridge.

A friend told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Kate has taken two types of bikinis, some old-fashioned ones that cover her up quite well, and, at the bottom of her case, a couple of more skimpy ones.

‘She told a neighbour and some friends that they would know how confident she was feeling in the jungle if the racy ones ever saw the light of day – especially the polka-dot one. She hasn’t worn a bikini like that for many years now. It would be such a TV moment if she decides to go for it.

‘She looks amazing and she has joked that she could do a Myleene in her skimpy swimwear. She has a great sense of humour and is really proud of what she has achieved in terms of her weight loss.

‘Missing out on those weekly fry-ups has been a wrench for her but it has paid off.’         

But while she’s faced a number of gruesome challenges and creepy-crawlies, kate previously revealed that the main thing that would terrify her was heading into the iconic jungle shower.

The star recently revealed that she’s fearful about stripping off in the shower – made famous by Myleene Klass – as she has an ‘ordinary body with ‘cellulite’.

She said: 'I don't want to look old in my advanced years so I go on a power walk for half an hour every day, and it helps to keep the pounds off' (pictured earlier this month)

Despite having an amazing figure, which she showcased in a stunning red jumpsuit amid her arrival in Oz, Kate admitted that she’s ‘nervous’ about stripping off in front of the nation.   

The presenter told The Mirror that she’s armed herself with a number of styles of swimwear, so she’s prepared for any eventuality.

She added to publication: ‘I am very nervous about that because I’ve got an ordinary body. I’ve not got a celebrity body. That’s the problem, I’ve not got a celebrity body.  

‘So I’m taking in a skimpy bikini and I’m going to see if the experience of being in the jungle is enough to make me let go of that fear, and by the end of it I actually put that bikini on.’

Kate told how she’s getting her body ready for jungle life by coating it in fake tan, joking that she’ll be the only contestant that ‘gets whiter’ over time.

The star went on to describe her body hang-ups, adding: ‘I’ve got a lot cellulite and my thinking was brown cellulite is better than white cellulite. It’s not much to cling to, but it’s what’s I’m clinging to right now.’

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Sunday night’s show saw Ian Wright put through his paces once again as he took part in a Hell-Evator Bushtucker Trial.

The BBC Sport commentator, 56, appeared petrified as he rummaged through filthy sinks, furniture and even toilets in order to collect stars for his co-stars. 

Sporting clear goggles, the former Arsenal forward was terror-stricken as he held onto his chest while entering a chamber infested with creepy crawlies.

Oh dear: Ian Wright was put through his paces once again as he took part in a Hell-Evator Bushtucker Trial on Sunday's episode of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The Woolwich native screamed in horror as he took to three different levels of a secret bunker, with the star being required to search for stars at each level. 

In the tense challenge, Ian – who had to find 11 stars in total – kicked off the task with a smile on his face, but his enthusiasm was quickly knocked once insects started to fall on him.   

Following the trial, the TV and radio star said he was disappointed in himself, despite scoring an impressive seven stars. 

When Ian returned to camp, Andrew Maxwell – who has engaged in a series of heated discussions with the ex-footballer over the past couple of days – put their feud behind him as he hugged the star and thanked him for cooking. 

Talking in the BT, Ex On The Beach narrator Andrew, 44, shared: ‘He’s done a lot of Trials, the Trials take it out of him.’
