She’s got the dubious task of counselling celebrities as they struggle to survive their stay in the South African jungle on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.
Now the show’s resident psychologist, Dr Kate Baecher, has revealed who she believes will walk away the victor from this year’s season.
Dr Baecher, who has been counselling the star contestants for all four seasons, says there’s one name that quickly comes to mind.

When probed by The Daily Telegraph on Saturday, the expert claimed comedian Fiona O’Loughlin is her pick to take home the title.
The funny woman is one of the four celebrities remaining on the show, alongside singer Shannon Noll, boxer Danny Green and Geordie Shore star Vicky Patterson.
Explaining why Fiona is likely to win, Dr Baecher claims she’s noticed common traits shared by the past three winners of the show.
‘It’s usually someone who Australians can relate to, so someone who’s had a tough life but is showing their vulnerability throughout and is a relatable, normal human,’ she explained.

Last year’s winner Casey Donovan won over viewers by speaking candidly about her struggles after winning Australian Idol as a sixteen year old.
The star battled with a number of different issues, before regaining her confidence during her time on the series.
Similarly, 2016 series winner Brendan Fevola had somewhat of a redemption story, detailing his problems with depression and gambling addiction.

Meanwhile, Fiona has also showed her vulnerable side, speaking candidly about her struggles with alcoholism whilst on the show.
Dr Baecher says it’s becoming clearer to her every year just who will take home the top prize.
‘Season three was really easy, and again this year,’ she told The Telegraph.
Mental anguish: Dr Baecher claims it’s not the tasks themselves but the anxiety of how they’re being perceived by the audience that often causes the competitors distress
Interestingly, Dr Baecher told the publication that it’s not necessarily the terrifying tasks A-list competitors need to perform that cause them the most distress.
Rather, it’s wondering why they’ve been nominated by the Australian public that causes mental anguish.
‘They don’t know if they’re being punished or rewarded and it’s that confusion that causes a lot of stress,’ she said..
Series winner? The victor of I’m A Celebrity will be revealed during the season finale, set to air later this month on Channel Ten
