Myleene Klass became a firm-favourite of viewers when she appeared on I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2006.
And it was mainly down to her stripping down into a tiny white bikini under the jungle shower.
The classically trained musician – who placed second on the show 14 years ago – has finally shared on how she ended up scooping up her iconic white two-piece moments before entering the camp and admitted it was a good investment.
Taking to Instagram on Sunday night as the new series launched, the former pop sensation, 42, reflected on her stint on the ITV reality series.

Alongside a snap of herself clad in the famous white string bikini under the show waterfall, the radio presenter typed: "I can’t believe that @imacelebrity started again tonight. It feels like I was in the jungle only yesterday! Every time I see this pic pop up, I can’t believe how fate handled it all."
Dishing on how she had not originally planned to wear a white bikini, she added: "I remember one of the show's producers looking at my bikinis in the hotel before I went to camp. One was covered in stripes. ‘We’ll have to stop at the shops as that’s probably going to strobe on camera’."

"I ran into the shop en route to the jungle, asked the shop assistant for the plainest bikini she had."
Myleene joked: "Best $40 I ever spent….especially as it raised so much for charity afterwards."
The former contestant ended the post: "Goodluck to the contestants. Hope the new outdoor shower isn't too cold!!!"
Before her stint on the show, Myleene was best known as one-fifth of failed pop band Hear'Say.

But after turning heads in the skimpy swimwear, Myleene left the jungle with a number of job offers.
In 2017 in an interview with BUILD LDN, Myleene said she was shocked by the amount of fuss caused by her bathing scenes.

I'm A Celebrity changes – rancid privy, freezing downpours and sleeping on floor
"When I came out of the jungle it was all about this white bikini – which wasn't very white by the time I left!" joked Myleene.
"So many offers that came through as a result of that… modelling contracts initially," she said.
"If it works for another girl, I say jump in the shower – it's freezing but jump in!" she advised.
She later auctioned the bikini off for £7,500 for charity.
