I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is back on our screens - and there is a "disgusting" surprise awaiting the contestants as they arrive in the jungle.

For the first time, all 10 of the celebrities had to take part in the opening Bush Tucker Trial, which included eating a kangaroo penis and being subjected to a host of creepy crawlies.

The group was split into two teams - boys versus girls - to compete over five rounds based on popular TV shows.

The winners were to get one final night of luxury before entering the jungle, while the losers faced a makeshift camp outside.

The celebrities, still in their smart outfits, were visibly shaken ahead of the challenge.

First up was ex-MP Lembit Opik and Playboy model Kayla Collins who had to play Hell Hole Kitchen.

They both had to grab stars from a box containing scorpions, rats and snakes.

Opik complained that "it was an absolutely disgusting feeling" while Collins said: "I was really terrified."

Nutritionist Gillian McKeith was forced to face her phobia of insects as she and former Happy Mondays star Shaun Ryder were covered in critters while they guessed whether news headlines were true or false.

Meanwhile former Coronation Street actor Nigel Havers and Paul Gascoigne's ex-wife Sheryl had to sing Grease hit Summer Lovin' with cockroaches, maggots and jungle slime for company.
