Anita Rani is one of the celebs who has had it pretty bad, admitting “it was unlike anything I’ve experienced before”.

“I honestly thought I wasn’t going to be able to carry on with the expedition,” she added. “And that had me balling my eyes out like a small child, so there is a lot of emotion.”

Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall has also struggled, saying on Wednesday: “The last 12 hours have probably been the hardest. Last night I was really, really sick, vomiting, I felt nauseous, had a bad tummy and a high temperature, I’m not sure if it was a bug or the altitude. Been taking tablets, didn’t sleep very well.”
