'I was in serious trouble': I'm A Celebrity's Kendra Wilkinson almost died after her drug addiction spiralled out of control at just 14

She's proven herself to be a feisty fun-time girl during her stint in the Australian jungle.  But I'm A Celebrity star Kendra Wilkinson's teenage years were overshadowed by drug addiction, according to the Sunday People.  And her wild ways went so far, the former Playboy model who was hooked on cocaine, crystal meth and LSD almost died after taking a toxic cocktail of drugs aged just 14.  She told the paper: 'My drug habit was turning into a nightmare pretty ­quickly, and one night soon after, I almost didn’t survive.  Line after line, I just kept going. Usually I knew my limit and stopped myself when I hit it because even though I was a druggie, I was still fearful of anything bad happening.  I was shaking and choking on the blood that was dripping down my throat. I was in serious trouble, ­everyone thought I was dying.'

However, her fellow party goers refused to call for an ambulance, thinking of only covering their own backs, leaving the diminutive blonde to recover on her own.  She adds in her autobiography Sliding Into Home, 'I recovered on my own. I decided I had had enough.'

Meanwhile, her mother Patti has taken a swipe at her daughter, insisting she has turned her back on her family since finding fame, despite appearing on several episodes of her different reality shows.   She tells The Sun on Sunday: 'Kendra and I have no contact. We do not talk, it's really sad. I want to back out of all the Hollywood stuff it has destroyed my family. I don't think she cares. She has written us off.'

Kendra has previously admitted to using the lunch money her mother gave her to buy drugs, before turning to stealing from her own grandmother to get a fix.  Aged 19, Kendra had found herself as one of Hefner's harem.  She shot to fame as one of Hugh Hefner's live-in girlfriends on reality show The Girls Next Door and has openly admitted how she saw sleeping with the octogenarian as just a 'job'.  Since entering the jungle, the mother-of-two has been flirting with X Factor contestant Jake Quickenden, who was drafted in alongside former Tory MPE Edwina Currie to replace Gemma Collins and Craig Charles.  During a steamy stint in a jungle jacuzzi, the singer offered the model a back massage, before she returned the favour by rubbing his feet.  The thrilled wannabe pop star quipped: 'I'm massaging a Playboy girl!'
