Katherine Kelly Lang's dramatic health ordeal: "I got so weak so fast"

Katherine Kelly Lang couldn’t contain her emotions as she was eliminated from Australia’s I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The Bold and The Beautiful star was eliminated after being in the jungle for just a week. Lang was the fourth celebrity to be eliminated from the show.

"I'm so disappointed! I just wanted to do better," the star sobbed after hearing the news.

However, host Dr Chris Brown, tried his best to ease her disappointment by saying: "No! 'You are happiness and light personified!"

Now that Lang is out of the jungle and into the world again, she has shared what it was like being in the jungle.

Although the star was put through her paces and had to face her fears head on, this wasn’t without backlash from her body and her mind.

"I got so weak, so fast," she told Now To Love.

"I didn't know what was wrong with me, but I was losing like a pound a day – by the end of it I've lost 10 pounds (4.5kgs)."

However, her time in the jungle has cleared her system and her head.

“When you put yourself in that position you kind of realise how blessed you are. You realise how lucky you are to have a great job and to have an amazing family,” Lang explained.

“So much of that you take for granted, but when you're stripped of it and when you're put in that situation, you really appreciate the things that you do have.”

Lang has decided to take some time to recuperate from the intense stress being in the jungle has put her through.

“I lost a lot of weight in a short period of time, so I need to get some of my strength back – I'm going to eat a little bit more protein and more green juices with lots of vitamins and minerals.

“I did feel so weak on that diet. But it's ultimately cleaned out my system, so now I don't want to eat a bunch of junk – I want to continue to a healthy routine and I'm going to try and maintain it.”
