Paul, the Chief, Harragon is entering his final week in the African jungle on the second season of “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here”, as he raises awareness and hopefully funds for the Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF).
With no creature comforts, very little food, a raft of creepy crawly challenges and no contact with anyone outside of the African cast and crew, the Chief has made it into the final week after a grueling five weeks in the jungle.
The MHF is the Chief’s chosen charity, with the Foundation set to be rewarded with the $100,000 prize money should he win. It was an emotional choice for Chief.
“This charity is really personal to me," he said.
“One of my great friends, Mark Hughes, was diagnosed with brain cancer about three years ago.
"He’s got three beautiful kids, and since then he’s started the Mark Hughes Foundation, and they’ve done amazing stuff already trying to find better remedies and treatments, and ultimately a cure.
"That’s what’s hanging me in there (in the jungle)."
One person each night from Sunday will be evicted from the jungle until the finale on Sunday March 13. Votes are reset each day - so votes are important to keep Chief. It’s a whole week of grand finals!
