It raised money for the charity Malaria No More.
She was dropped off in the jungle with George Hamilton and they made their way to base camp on foot whilst the younger contestants were parachuted in or made their way on horse back.
She made her mark by getting her legs out, straightening her hair and starting to clean the toilet and objecting to have to re-use towels. She spent the night with her new camp husband, George Hamilton, in the caravan cabin where the others joked about them being like a husband and wife team.
The bush tucker trial turned out to be an underwater glass perspex box which Ant and Dec nicknamed the Tomb. She had to lie in it whilst all sorts of creepy crawlies were added. These included cockroaches and crayfish. They crawled all over her legs, bottom, bossoms, mouth, ears, hair and other intimate parts of her body. After the event she had to strip down to her pants and bra and get help to remove the bugs and shower in the pond because of the smell. She did remarkably well though and collected all eleven gold balls. Each golden ball contained one star which was swapped for one meal, meaning that from this bush tucker trial she earned a meal for each contestant. They were excused the next bush tucker trial on health grounds. Viewers voted for Katie Price aka Jordan to perform this.
In the next episode the males kept themselves amused by talking about Kim Woodburn's breasts and comparing them to Sam Fox and Jordan! Then the lads moved on to talk about farts and burps!
Poor Jordan had to perform the next day's bush tucker trial in front of all the contestants. Sadly Camilla Dallerup had to leave due to ill health. A new contestant arrived. This was Joe Bugner, the former heavy weight boxing champion. She kept the contestants amused with the sounds of her snoring!
On Thursday they were split into two teams and had to compete a challenge to remain in the comfortable camp. Sadly her team lost and had to make their way to the exile camp which was dirty and rat infested.
They had to perform a bush tucker trial challenge which involved a fishing game. She won this and her prize was to return to base with immunity from the first vote off. Can the Queen of Clean become the Queen of the Jungle and add this to her biography?
There was some hilarious shots of her snoring habits with the others talking about pitying Kim Woodburn's husband Pete!
She had an argument with Joe Bugner when he asked Katie Price (Jordan) to compete in the bush tucker trials for those who did not feel up to performing the challenges and for criticising the cooking of chicken by Sabrina Washington. Katie Price had been voted by the general public to compete in five conseuitive challenges and this forced her to eventually quit.
The previous day Katie and Kim did the eating bush tucker trial where they had to eat disgusting food such as fish eyes, crickets and a cockroach. She managed to eat these though with a lot of retching and almost being sick, which Ant and Dec had a good laugh about! Katie Price (Jordan) had to pass some of the foods to her because she could not chew them due to her teeth which utter trivia think may be veneers. This challenge still had its funny moments, especially when she lunged at Ant with an empty open mouth after finishing each mouthful of tucker. The humour continued when footage of talking to her underwear, pants, bra and even the toilet with her favourite catchphrase of My Dear!
She operated a crane when she took part in the next Bushtucker Trial with Joe who was on the end of the crane being lowered into pits of black headed python snakes to retrieve stars. Proving that she is unbeaten they retrieved nine stars despite the weight of the crane handles being too heavy.
The vote offs started and the first person to leave I'm a Celeb 2009 was Lucy Benjamin.
The following day they wanted their luxury items back. Her luxury item was hair conditioner whilst Gino D'Acampo yearned for his pillow so decided to use Kim Woodburn's bosoms!
Colin McAllister was the second celeb to leave and the next was Sam Fox. She and Joe then had to complete a drinking challenge at the Jungle Arms Pub where drinks included pulped cockroaches and meal worms, pulped crocodile foreskin with a croc penis as a garnish, pulped kangaroo anus and liquidised witchety grub. They met the challenge and won all the meals and chocolate as a bonus.
Joe Bugner was then voted off and George Hamilton asked to leave to spend time with his girlfriend and family. They bade him a sad and tearful farewell, especially Kim as George can almost become her jungle husband.
Viewers were treated to images of Kim Woodburn naked in the rock pool having a wash, though her breasts and naughty bits were screened off with stars on the TV!
There were more tears the following day when the celebs had letters read out from home. Kimmies letters were from Daisy her cat and husband Peter. She was weighed and the scales showed that her weight had dropped by 1.5 stones - time to be a model once more!
The voting continued and as Sabrina Washington left she became the last female in the jungle and made it through to the final three with Jimmy White and Gino D'Acampo. She was not to add Queen of the Jungle to her bio sadly but came a respectable second. Her final challenge was for perspex boxes to be attached to her containing beasties such as nipping and biting giant spiders, green ants and cockroaches. Ant and Dec had more fun at her expense when some of the insects attached themselves to her nipples. The winner was Gino D'Acampo.
Her other jobs before her TV success were varied and included working as a beautician, in a toy factory, as a social worker and as a model for the Littlewoods catalogue. She has also set up a handmade knitwear company for the fuller figured and taller lady. She appeared on Pebble Mill At One, with Jeff Banks, in 1983 where she modelled her range. This was her first television appearance.
She and her husband Peter moved to America. Peter gave up being a policeman so that they could be together and they had a successful business keeping and cleaning house for rich and often famous Americans.
One of their clients had a house in the UK and they moved back to Kent to look after this holiday home.
On the 30 August Kim Woodburn and Aggie Mackenzie did a TV special called When Kim And Aggie Went To Hospital. They went behind the scenes at Ealing Hospital in West London to look into the hospital's standard of hygiene.

£1 million was spent on this brand awareness sponsorship.
On the 16 February 2007 she appeared as a guest on the Friday Night Project with Alan Carr and Justin lee Collins. She was a panellist answering questions about the actress Ashley Jensen (The Extras, Ugly Betty) but was too shocked by the rude comments of naughty Alan Carr and his teasing about white wine vinegar for removing stains.
They are nicknamed the Queens of Clean.
