Friends say Klass has agreed to appear on the show, even though she is terrified of reptiles, to win more fans Down Under as the show is also screened on Aussie channel ABC. "The show will be a good launchpad for her on Australian TV. She'd love to work there more given the chance," the Sun quoted a pal as saying.
The insider added: "She's a real sucker for punishment, going back to the jungle all the time. She is terrified of creepy crawlies - and the insects in Oz are ten times worse than anything in Costa Rica."
Klass said: "I'm really excited about hosting a show in Australia for the first time. After presenting in the US last year, it's fantastic to be given the chance to work Down Under. It's the first time I've been back since being in the jungle for I'm A Celebrity all those years ago. Hopefully this show will involve less bugs and spiders," she added.
Johny Pitts will co-host the children's show with Klass.
