"It's not like: "I want you to know I have this interesting disability that you have to accommodate", Anne explained.
The I'm A Celebrity campmates couldn't resist challenging The Chase's Governess, Anne Hegerty, to some questions, after answering the capital cities of her choice, but when Rita suggested they test her knowledge on something she wouldn't be familiar with, they succeeded in discovering she had no idea who The Vamps are.
And after Sunday night's show, Karen Sweet tweeted: "As the mother of a son with Asperger's Syndrome I am delighted to see Anne Hegarty (sic) in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here".
She also told the youngster that the team behind Thunderbirds had been in touch, offering to send Joseph a gift. I think you are very courageous for going in the jungle, I couldn't go in there because there are too many bugs.
However, on tonight's episode, viewers saw Anne, 60, breaking down as she faced the task.
In footage filmed before entering the jungle she said: "I've had to learn a lot about what I can and can't do and what I can and can't cope with". However, the first six would go to the the other celebs red team in Croc Creek, the seventh would be for her and would also mean that Anne moved to Croc Creek. You are very clever.
Hegerty had a rough entrance to the I'm A Celebrity life. So you like Thunderbirds?
Hegerty, who stars as the stern Governess in ITV's teatime quiz show The Chase, has Asperger's and had told how elements of being in the camp could be a "source of stress". I love them my favourite is Thunderbirds 2.
Appearing on the Jeremy Vine Show recently, she said: 'Because, you know, there are people who don't always understand how it works or how to relate to me.

"Good luck in the jungle I hope you win. There are plenty of people who have taken on Bushtucker Trials and haven't even got two".
Speaking on Loose Women in September, Anne revealed she doesn't let anyone into her home or like to go on holiday as she prefers things to be quiet.
Hegarty went on to say that a social worker helped her to sort out her bills before she was introduced to the world of "elite quizzers" where she got the chance to audition for the second season of The Chase.
