Harry?s girl goes bush

SOCCEROOS star Harry Kewell's glamorous wife Sheree Murphy is about to tackle her own Mt Everest by crawling through the Murwillumbah ''jungle''.

Just a day after her superstar husband spearheaded Australia to an historic berth in next year's World Cup soccer finals it has been revealed Sheree is headed for the Tweed to take part in the British reality television series ''I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here''.

For the fifth year in a row, the tranquil countryside and quiet rural roads around Upper Dungay are set to become the focus of an international media frenzy.

In Britain the show is pitched to British TV audiences as being set in the Australian "jungle". In fact it is being shot in the rainforest surrounds of a private property near Murwillumbah.

The Survivor-style show is watched by a British audience of about 10 million people.

Sheree, a popular soap star in Britain, will barely have time to come down from her husband's big night on Wednesday when the Socceroos beat Uruguay, before going into the elaborate camp near Dungay.

A mother-of-two, is one of 10 minor celebrities who will be involved. Others include former Neighbours actress Kimberley Davies, Carole Thatcher _ the daughter of Margaret Thatcher - and former child popstar Jimmy Osmond.

For Sheree, the show will be a definite test of will, especially since she has listed her phobias as "heights, flying, birds, wasps, flies, mice, bugs and camping".

"I've never been camping before," she said in The Mirror newspaper. UK viewers vote celebrities out during the two-week long show which starts transmitting on November 27.
