‘Brynne, I owe you an apology because it was the bee sting where you left, that was due to my action up in the helicopter,’ Alicia, 40, said.
‘So I’ve got to apologise for you going out early on day one – it was brutal,’ she added.
Brynne, 38, who was the first celebrity to leave the show, responded, ‘Yeah, it was so hard, I just couldn’t do it.’

Alicia was accused of not taking the course seriously when she was tasked with pulling herself along a ladder that was dangling under a helicopter.
She was later ruthlessly grilled by chief drill instructor Ant Middleton, who subsequently ordered all 18 celebrities to do the bee sting challenge – which involves the competitors holding a push-up position while carrying their backpacks.
This challenge made Brynne quit the show and hand in her number to the DS.

‘You know what, I would have liked to have gone further, I was really bummed out that that was as far as I went, and as far as I felt as I could go,’ she said.
‘Because I really wanted to do my personal best, even if it wasn’t as far as other people went, but I couldn’t I physically could not do it anymore.’
