Emily Scott gave Mark Wright a head massage as their jungle friendship continued to blossom - only for her to find a tick burrowing into his scalp.
The Aussie had initially thought the former Only Way Is Essex star had a bump on his head when she found the bug.
And Mark ended up grumbling about his bad luck in the camp as he filmed ITV1's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
The pair were planning to show each other their healing hands.
But Mark boobed by initially placing his head on Emily's chest instead of resting it on her stomach.
He then lay back for five minutes while she massaged him until she pointed out the tick.
"No way," he shouted. "Why me? Leeches, a snake under my bum eating something - I've had them all. Anything and I will get it."
