Shaun braves grim jungle feast

Hell-raiser Shaun Ryder ate crocodile penis for the latest I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! challenge - after being told off by Gillian McKeith for talking with his mouth full.

The 48-year-old former lead singer of the Happy Mondays managed to eat the sponge pudding containing the crocodile genital.

But nutritionist Gillian refused, saying: "I'm not eating it. There's no way I'm going to eat a penis... Who knows what's in it? It's probably full of pathogens and God knows what else. Things crawling in there."

Shaun also swallowed down aged duck egg, an ice cream jelly containing meal worms, crickets, cockroaches, and two crocodile eyes and another course of bull's tongue and beach worms, all of which Gillian refused.

When Shaun tucked with gusto into the bull's tongue and beach worms, she admonished him snapping: "Don't speak when you're eating. It's disgusting. Chew first, swallow, then speak. I don't want to look at it right now. It will make me vomit."

The trial finished with Gillian taking home one star, for eating a cheese flan, and Shaun with five.

Gillian had been told off by former Bond girl Britt Ekland as she prepared for the trial, with Britt telling her: "Show a bit more positive face."

Gillian responded: "I'm very positive with everything in my life. But I am facing something that is very difficult for me."

Britt had enough, saying: "We can go on and on about this. We all knew what we went into the jungle for."

Former X Factor star Stacey Solomon, 21, was voted by the public to take on the next Bushtucker Trial.
