Poh Ling Yeow reveals she turned down I’m a Celebrity for eight years

Poh Ling Yeow reveals she turned down I’m a Celebrity for eight years because she feared ‘going without makeup’ – but now says appearing on the show ‘boosted her confidence’


Poh Ling Yeow’s journey on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! came to an end on Thursday night’s episode just before the series heads into the finale. 

But the former MasterChef Australia star has revealed that she was not saddened by her departure but rather proud about how far she got through the show and the confidence boost she gained from her experience.

‘I went out on the last bit, we already did everything, and I keep telling everyone that I’m really happy,’ she told New Idea of her eviction.

The celebrity cook says she enjoyed having the opportunity to ‘challenge’ herself, especially with her final task before eviction when she had the ‘mystery box with the snakes and then got hurled into the swamp’. 

Poh admits it took eight years of being asked to star on I’m a Celeb before she relented and said yes.

She claims she ‘never really understood’ the program but decided to watch the previous season and ended up loving it. 

'Going without makeup - working in the media, there's a decent amount of expectation for you to look good all the time. And that was quite a big fear' she said

After confirming her appearance on the series, Poh confessed that she had initial concerns heading into the jungle and took awhile adjusting and letting her guard down. 

‘Going without makeup – working in the media, there’s a decent amount of expectation for you to look good all the time. And that was quite a big fear.’

‘But what’s really cool that’s come out of it is I actually don’t wear any eye makeup anymore. It’s really boosted my confidence in that way,’ she said.

The Malaysian-born Australian artist added that she always felt ‘loved no matter how I looked’ in the jungle, which she says was ‘pretty life-changing’. 

Poh was eliminated during Thursday night’s episode of the jungle based reality show. 

She was in the bottom three alongside AFL star Nathan Buckley and swimmer Emily Seebohm.

The three were forced to guess how many snakes were in a mystery box, with Poh failing to get close enough to the correct number. 

Poh’s exit leaves six celebrities remaining ahead of Sunday night’s finale. 

They include Dylan Lewis, Brooke McClymont, David Subritzky, Joey Essex, Emily and Nathan. 

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues Sunday at 7.30pm on 10
