A FORMER restaurant owner waved goodbye to pals before heading Down Under to star in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.
Crissy Rock, of Peterlee, is preparing to wow audiences of the hit ITV reality show when it returns to the small screen on Sunday.
The 53-year-old comedienne and actress, who owned floating restaurant MV Ella on Hartlepool Marina during the Tall Ships summer last year, this weekend waved goodbye to friends and family at The Chesters pub on Chester Road. She then headed over to the jungle on Saturday evening.
After her run in the jungle, Crissy will star in the Billingham Forum Theatre as Cinderella in December.
