KEZIA DUGDALE’S jungle pal yesterday defended the Labour MSP after critics branded her one of the dullest ever celebrity campers.
Alan Roden, who is in Australia to welcome the former Scottish Labour leader if she gets voted out of the show, said she has won over her campmates and her friendly personality will soon win over viewers.
Show producers are said to be disappointed by Kezia, who made her debut on the popular programme less than a fortnight ago after she failed to spark hoped-for debates with Tory minister Boris Johnson’s dad Stanley in camp.
Speaking from Australia, pal Alan said: “The whole country should be getting behind her.
“She’s the only Scot there and we should keep her in the jungle for as long as we can, so the whole of the UK can see what we already know in the Labour Party – she’s an incredibly likeable, friendly and down-to-earth human being.
“You can see how much the other campmates are fond of her, particularly given her skills as a chef.
“She’s a great chef at home anyway and now she’s really getting down to the tasks.
“I saw her making the pigeon stew the other day and all the other contestants are clearly impressed.
“As time goes on she’s winning over the viewing public as well.”
