I’m A Celebrity viewers stunned by terrifying final jungle challenges

All three finalists had to endure Bushtucker trials.

Viewers watched in horror and awe as the final three I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestants battled the toughest Bushtucker trials of the series.

The final episode saw Georgia Toffolo locked in a case while covered with thousands of green ants, cockroaches, crabs and spiders, while Iain Lee had to consume a collection of undesirable jungle treats and Jamie Lomas had to lie in a ditch as dozens of snakes slithered over him.

Fans of the ITV show were flabbergasted at the gruelling challenges, which the remaining three celebrities had to take on in order to win enough stars to enjoy a delicious last dinner.

Made In Chelsea star Toffolo, whose nickname is Toff, was praised highly for her tackling of the critter-laced challenge with gusto and good humour.

One fan on Twitter wrote: “Toff is such a warrior. you can tell how scared she is but she never gives up! she deserves to win!! #ImACeleb.”

Sports broadcaster Mark Pougatch remarked: “Toff’s stoicism in the face of an onslaught of critters is actually the perfect antidote to an afternoon of whingeing Football managers.”

And Hollyoaks actress Jazmine Franks joked: “I think my dad is more proud of Toff than he is of me.”

Lee, who choked down delicacies including a pig’s vagina and scorpions, was also given a social media high five from viewers, mostly for joking his way through the stomach-churning trial.

One viewer wrote: “Ngl I’ve warmed to Iain, he actually really funny in this trial #ImACeleb.”

“Yes Iain is totally bossing this! #imaceleb,” another enthused.

One commented: “Isn’t it amazing to see how different Iain is when he’s no longer surrounded by a trio of bullies? He seems so much more confident and happy. It’s lovely to see. #ImACeleb #iainlee #MentalHealthAwareness.”

Viewers could not believe Lomas managed to keep his cool as the snakes wriggled around him.

“Ohh my god!! HOW IS JAMIE DOING THIS TRIAL? So many snake,” one person tweeted.

Another said: “After successfully completing the last bush trucker trial of 2017, Jamie deserves to be Jungle King!! Such a brave gent!!”

Sunday night’s episode of the show will see this year’s winner crowned.
