Episode notes

To  celebrate Jill Scott being crowned Queen of the Jungle, in the 2022 I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out If Here, we’re giving you another chance to hear this brilliant interview with her. Enjoy! 

Football legend Jill Scott MBE has 149 caps for England and plays for Man City. She’s played in four World Cups and was part of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics.  

Jill left her hometown club of Sunderland to play for Everton in 2006 and went on to help them win the FA Women's Premier League Cup in 2008 and FA Women's Cup in 2010.  

In 2008 she was voted the FA Players' Player of the Year and 2011 the FA International Player of the Year. The FIFA technical report after the 2011 Women's World Cup described her as one of England's four outstanding players: "an energetic, ball-winning midfielder who organises the team well, works hard at both ends of the pitch and can change her team's angle of attack." 

Jill was awarded an MBE the 2020 New Year’s Honours for services to football.
