Bristow pulls through tunnel trial

Eric Bristow is the latest celebrity to be doused with creepy crawlies

Eric Bristow has become the latest contestant to be doused in creepy crawlies as he underwent a bushtucker trial on I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

The darts legend had to lie on his back on a trolley and pull himself through a tunnel using a rope, gathering as many of the six hidden stars as he could in 10 minutes.

During the trial he was covered in maggots, cockroaches, spiders and jungle gunk but managed to secure five of the six stars on offer.

Commenting on his performance he said: "Bugs don't frighten me. I will take that. If they are not pleased with that in camp then they can come and do it."

He added: "It wasn't very pleasant, let me put it this way. I can still feel things crawling on me now.

"I am looking forward to getting back to camp now and telling them five out of six and boy do I need a shower. I don't smell too good."

Eric has ruffled some feathers in the camp with his straight-talking attitude, which has seen him accused of rudeness and bullying by other contestants.

When he returned to camp he admitted he was scared during the trial, saying "it was a bit frightening to be honest", and received praise from some of the other contestants.

The former darts world champion also revealed that he would be in the money if he avoided eviction again thanks to a bet.

He said: "There is a lot of money on today. I told all the boys to whack the bookies that I will get half way, so if I go out today, I will lose the lot. It is worth £70,000 today. £20,000 to win £50,000."
