Dr Chris Brown believes in the healing force of the jungle.
He's seen the most unlikely friendships formed on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me out Of Here and is convinced a spell on the Network Ten reality show could help heal some of the world's biggest rifts.
"If we could get Trump and Kim Jong-Un into the jungle we would not have a North Korea crisis," Brown said.
The TV vet is coming into his fourth season hosting the show alongside Julia Morris, and says he's picked up some preparation tips from season two contestant, Shane Warne.
"When Warnie went into the jungle he put on seven kilos before he went in just eating pizza and pasta, and this year I've decided I'm going to do the same thing," he said.
"Given the heat and the extremes over there, you actually lose a lot of weight, even when you're staying in nicer accommodation like we are. That's probably the only preparation I'll do, and a lot of sleep and a lot of relaxing. It's like the reverse jungle diet."
Brown isn't told which celebrities are going into the jungle until about three days before the show is about to start, but he does get to put forward some suggestions of who might make a good contestant.
"On my phone I have a note section and every single time I see a news report around someone or see something on social media that makes me think 'this person should go into the jungle' I write it down and send the note to the bosses and they go from there," he said.
The tucker trials, Brown says, are going to get even tougher this year.
"They're certainly going to be more challenging than they have been, which probably seems impossible considering we've buried celebrities alive with snakes and we've tried to dispose of Keira Maguire off a large steel tower, but all I can say is that that will possibly look mild compared to what we have in store," he said.
The trials are entertaining, at least for those watching, but sometimes it's hard to fathom why any of these celebrities would put themselves through it.
Brown has his own theories on that.
"I reckon they just realise it's good for them and good for their careers," he said.
"We've now had so many people who've done it and I can't really think of one where it's been bad for them. If you go in there with the good Aussie spirit of giving it a red-hot crack, then it's going to be good for you and you're going to learn a lot about yourself, and a lot about a very interesting group of people."
