Taking tips from Myleene? Carol Vorderman, 55, flaunts her youthful figure and ample cleavage in a sexy white swimsuit ahead of I'm A Celebrity appearance
Myleene Klass' jungle shower in her little white bikini is one of the most iconic I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here moments.
But Carol Vorderman, 55, proved to be a game rival as she slipped into a skimpy white swimsuit of her own ahead of her jungle appearance.
Hitting the beach in Queensland on Thursday, the former Countdown star gave ITV viewers a glimpse of what they can expect to see when the show returns on Sunday.

Two of a kind: Carol rivalled Myleene Klass' jungle shower in her little white bikini - which is widely regarded as one of the most iconic I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here moments
Carol is one of the 10 brave stars heading into the outback for this year's I'm A Celebrity when the series kicks off on Sunday.
This year's celebs are, as ever, a diverse bunch, including Strictly Come Dancing's Ola Jordan, George Clooney's model ex Lisa Snowdon, reality favourite Scarlett Moffatt, and hunky Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas.
Also making their way into the Australian jungle are former England footballer Wayne Bridge, Olympian Sam Quek, ex EastEnders villain Larry Lamb, Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo and comedian Joel Dommett.

Carol is the only single female going into the camp after breaking up with her partner Graham Duff, who was 14 years her junior, last year.
The only other single campmate is 31-year-old Joel, who said of Carol: ‘I like maths. I like to show my working out. I think she would appreciate that.’
Carol, meanwhile, will no doubt be taking on a more maternal role as she revealed her camp role would be: 'Mothering type, I will be Aunty Carol.'
It doesn't add up! Former Countdown presenter Carol looked far younger than her 55 years as she showed off her age-defying figure and youthful complexion on the beach

However, she shouldn't be underestimated, as she quipped: 'I'll be 56 in December and there is life in the old bird yet!'
Speaking ahead of going into the jungle this week she said: 'I know people will ask “why does Carol need to do this?” but I have never ever paid attention to what others think.
I make my own decisions. I like the show and want to do it.'

She continued: 'I have been watching the show for years and have laughed so much. It is so funny.
'Now I am a menopausal Mama, I am having the time of my life. I am doing a lot more adventurous stuff and it’s the sense of adventure that I love about this show. It’s a very free time in my life.'
And it's an extra special experience for Carol, having overcome a low point last year when she experienced unpleasant physical and mental changes.
'I had six months last year when I was really low. I was genuinely depressed,' she told The Sun. 'I couldn’t see the point of anything.
Cosy campmates: Carol will be joined by (L-R) Joel Dommett, Scarlett Moffatt, Wayne Bridge, Adam Thomas, Lisa Snowdon, Larry Lamb, Sam Quek, Jordan Banjo and Ola Jordan
'I think it’s one of those taboos. Not many people talk about it and, if they do, they talk about it medically rather than the mental health side of it.'
Luckily, she was given a hormone gel which immediately changed Carol's life.
'From the moment he started me on those I’ve never felt low again,' she said.
She is also set to earn big money for her appearance, and is set to take home a reported £200,000 for her jungle stint which totals a maximum of three weeks in front of the ITV cameras.
