Jake bags jungle feast for celebs

Jake Quickenden has beaten ants, crabs and eels to win 10 meals for his fellow I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! contestants.

Flirty Jake has already proved to be a hit with the women in the camp, but he also impressed the men when he sailed through the live Critter Cube challenge to make sure his campmates did not go hungry.

The former X Factor contestant took on a series of challenges loosely based on the game show The Cube which tested his nerves, memory and stomach.

It was a good day for the celebrities who had already feasted on emu rump followed by ice cream after TV presenter Melanie Sykes braved jungle critters to win nine stars in her earlier trial.

They had also received care packages to ease the hardships of jungle life after Jake, Edwina Currie, Jimmy Bullard and Kendra Wilkinson managed to keep their role as undercover agents secret.

With all missions successfully completed it was time for the agents to emerge from their undercover personas and come clean with the rest of the camp.

Each of the campmates were given packages from home and luxury items. The celebrities were emotional as they opened boxes containing pictures of loved ones and treats.

Jake was overwhelmed to see his mother had given him a picture of his father and brother, both of whom have died.

He said: "To get a picture of my dad and my little brother is just great. I know they are proud and probably looking down on me anyway, but it's nice to see their faces. It ups your spirits a bit."

Playboy model Kendra cried as she looked at a family photo - "My babies," she said, happy to see her two children.

Former World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty was not only happy to see his family photos, but very pleased to receive his luxury item - a rubber ring. The others were jealous as he blew it up and used it as a comfy seat.

Former footballer Jimmy now faces a Critter Cube challenge of his own.
