Ashley dunked for jungle blunder

Ashley Roberts was dunked into a pit of slime after failing to correctly answer questions on Sylvester Stallone on tonight's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The former Pussycat Dolls singer struggled in the red gunge while campmate Charlie Brooks searched for a yellow star in a giant star filled with insects and fish guts.

The pair teamed up for the Jungle Walk Of Shame trial to win meals for the final five contestants.

Before the trial, Charlie said: "I was totally up for doing it, I'd no idea what it entailed. It's called the Walk Of Shame and I've done that once or twice before in my life but I doubt this one will be the same."

The pair did not know which 2010 movie Stallone starred in alongside Bruce Willis, Jason Statham and Jet Li, guessing Rocky IV instead of the correct answer, The Expendables. But they managed to win four out of a possible five meals, and the group had the hindquarters of a hare for dinner. With chef Rosemary Shrager gone, Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor took on the task of preparing dinner and said: "She was really beginning to do my nut in."

The campmates all received letters from home, with Charlie's daughter Kiki, seven, writing: "I am really proud of you."

The letter came a day after Kiki took part in a jungle trial which saw her waiting behind a yellow door to see her mother, but was left distraught when Charlie chose the wrong door.

She wrote: "Dear Mummy, I love you so much, you are doing brilliantly and I am really proud of you. I love the room service, we have been having ice cream, pink champagne and lots of fun on your bill every day. Don't worry about us, you are in it now you may as well try and win it for all of us. I can't wait to see you, you should have opened the yellow door. I was behind it. You are the best mummy in the world."

Ashley received a letter from her mother, saying: "Ashley, I am so proud of you, what a journey you have been on, you will reflect and carry this experience with you the rest of your life. I love that everyone gets to see what those of us who are fortunate to have you in their life already know."

To win their Dingo Dollar Challenge treat, the celebrities had to guess who had lost the most weight in the jungle. They guessed it was Colin Baker who lost 2 stone 3lb but later learned it was Rosemary. Ashley wondered what Rosemary had been eating before entering the jungle and darts star Eric Bristow said: "She must have been a pig." He added: "She doesn't really look any better with losing all that lot, she needs to lose a lot more yet."
