Gillian spared bushtucker trauma

Gillian McKeith is exempt from the latest bushtucker trial

Gillian McKeith has been spared another jungle ordeal after being ruled out of today's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! bushtucker trial.

But the good news for the celebrity nutritionist means bad news for former X Factor contestant Stacey Solomon, who has been chosen by viewers to take part in The Australian Job challenge.

Food expert Gillian, who had been picked by the public for the past two challenges, was excluded from the vote this time on health grounds, along with actors Nigel Havers and Britt Ekland.

The 51-year-old healthy eating guru had to be given oxygen by medics after fainting while locked in a pitch-black crate for Monday's bushtucker Trial.

And last night she refused to eat crocodile's penis and a host of other jungle nasties during the School Dinners trial.

She told off hell-raiser Shaun Ryder for talking with his mouth full as he ate the crocodile genitalia which had been stuck in the jungle version of popular school dessert Spotted Dick.

But she refused to eat it herself, saying: "I'm not eating it. There's no way I'm going to eat a penis... Who knows what's in it? It's probably full of pathogens and God knows what else. Things crawling in there."

Before the trial, Gillian had told Britt Ekland that she did not know what she was getting herself into by going into the jungle.

Being picked for the latest trial failed to wipe the smile off the face of 21-year-old singer Stacey. As the field of possible victims was narrowed down to her and Linford Christie, she exclaimed: "Why would it be you? You're strong."
