I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! stars faced some of their worst fears on the show, including a shed full of spiders and a stomach-churning menu of jungle delicacies.

Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt described wolfing down "two nipples, an anus, a penis and a beetle" in her second Bushtucker trial of the series so far as "disgusting", but said that eating a fermented egg was her "worst nightmare".

S he joined Carol Vorderman as they were served a selection of 10 revolting dishes by resident camp chef Scary Berry.

After successfully stomaching chocolate nip cookies (camel nipples), French knackeroons (turkey testicles), Bum-offee Pie (cow anus) and Sicktoria sponge (vomit fruit), the pair earned nine stars for their camp - each worth a meal.

" I've always watched this programme and thought, it can't taste that bad, surely," said Moffatt. "It can taste that bad and a lot worse! It was disgusting."

But for Adam Thomas, the worst part of the show's third episode, broadcast on Wednesday, was his night in the spider-infested Bushman's Lodge with Joel Dommett.

The pair were tasked with sending words in Morse Code back to camp in a bid to win dinner for the team, but Thomas was sent into a frenzy of fear as he started to spot spiders on the walls.

He confessed that he was "the most terrified he had ever been" as he and Dommett entered the abandoned lodge, and he struggled to keep his cool throughout the challenge.

On his return to camp, he said he was a "broken man," admitting to camp president Larry Lamb: "I cried Larry. I was a mess."

But it will be Dommett's turn to face his worst fear - of heights - after the public voted for him to take on The Great Ascent challenge in the next episode, airing on Thursday.

Meanwhile, surprises will continue for the campmates as new additions radio DJ Danny Baker and TV host Martin Roberts join them in the jungle.

Nearing his 60th birthday, Baker said it would be a "nice" final British show to take part in as he contemplates a move to America next year.

The BBC Homes Under The Hammer star Roberts, 53, said he was already "freaking out" over the prospect of joining the show and revealed his biggest fears are claustrophobia and large wasps.

:: I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Thursday night on ITV at 9pm.
