“I’d hate to have short-man syndrome, and be 2ft tall and 2ft wide, because you work out all the time to compensate.
“When I walk into a bar with my mates – we’re all over 6ft 2in – people say: ‘Bloody hell, forest has just walked in.'”
Vernon was announced to be a part of the line up for the latest series of I’m a Celebrity last week amid the series debut to our screens on Sunday, November 15.
