Despite her initial hesitation, Charlotte now says that she is in the right 'stage of my life' to tackle the challenging reality TV show.
"The universe works in funny ways, I was at the stage of my life where I was like, you know what? I’m just going to do it."
Charlotte - who recently split from boyfriend Joshua Richie after two years together - says the dramatic and challenging I'm a Celeb could not have come at a better time.
"You go through a breakup, get rid of your phone and go into the jungle, meet a load of new friends and have a crazy experience," she told 10 daily.
"It’s like I knew? It’s like back then when I was asked, something in my head knew what was going to happen and this was going to be the best thing for us.
"Take my phone away and put us in an environment where it’s completely natural reactions and everything’s new to me, I embrace it so much. It’s where I thrive."
