Julianne Hough drank water from elephant dung but she drew the line at eating the slippery animal.

Rock of Ages star Julianne Hough refused to let survival expert Bear Grylls kill a snake for their dinner during an African TV adventure.

The actress and singer signed up to join the Brit for the new season of his show Running Wild With Bear Grylls, and while she agreed to drink water squeezed from elephant dung and nibbled on striped policeman caterpillars for energy during her trek, there was no way she was eating a snake.

"I'm not a big fan of big snakes and we had to, like, crawl next to it," she tells Access Hollywood Live, but when her adventure companion suggested they should kill and eat it, she urged him to reconsider.

"I wouldn't let him kill it because I was like, 'There's no chance that I'm eating this'. So the deal was that he could let it go but I had to touch the tail."

She also struggled to keep the caterpillars down: "I decided to, like, break the caterpillar first, so it wouldn't be like a gusher in your mouth... It took me forever. It's a good thing Julianne's adventure comes after the busy 27-year-old recently postponed her wedding to ice hockey player Brooks Laich. The actress blamed the couple's busy schedule for postponing plans to tie the knot this summer (16). Work commitments on both sides have meant the couple has had little time to work on arrangements for their nuptials, so they've made the decision to put the wedding off to a date that has yet to be determined.

Hough's adventure with Bear Grylls will air in America on 2 August (16).
