I'm a Celebrity: Stars score by winning 10 meals in jungle

By Shereen Low

The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! stars triumphed in their first Bushtucker Trial with 10 meals, as their jungle adventure kicked off.

The red team, led by Spandau Ballet pop star Tony Hadley and comprising Jorgie Porter, Lady Colin Campbell and Kieron Dyer, along with the yellow team's nominated campmates George Shelley and Chris Eubank, had to take part in the Hell-Evated trial after losing out on previous challenges in the latest series of the ITV reality show.

The team-mates had to sit in cages suspended high above a lake as creatures and critters were dropped on them.

The first celebrity to drop out would forfeit five stars, with each subsequent withdrawal losing another meal for camp.

Author Campbell said: "I have enjoyed it up to this evening, at which point I have ceased to enjoy it."

First to face the cage challenge was Union J singer Shelley, who was covered in crickets and cockroaches, before ex-boxer Eubank had cockroaches dumped on him.

"I was zenned out. I used to fight for a living," he told hosts Ant and Dec.

Ex-soap star Porter jumped around when 16,000 cockroaches fell on her.

Hadley had to face a double round of cockroaches. Despite looking up as they fell on him, he gamely brushed the insects off his face, saying: "I just thought I'd add that to the game," as Dec told him he had around 30,000 cockroaches with him. Having successfully completed the trial, they won 10 meals for camp.

Earlier, the red and yellow teams both lost challenges. The yellow team - made up of leader Susannah Constantine, Yvette Fielding, Eubank, Brian Friedman and Duncan Bannatyne - lost the Skydive challenge, but the red team lost two of three challenges, the Tree Of Torment and the Bad Buoys.
