I’m A Celeb’s Celebrity Cyclone is probably the only bushtucker trial that we’d want to get involved in to be honest. Running up a slip and slide being hit in the face with giant yoga balls looks so much fun.

So fun that Holly Willoughby gave it her best shot last night on the I’m A Celeb Extra Camp on ITV2.


I'm A Celebrity 2014: The WORST Bushtucker Trials EVER!

Dean Gaffney (2006)1 of 8

Ex-EastEnder Dean Gaffney showed off his impressive ability to yelp like an injured animal in his 2006 trial. To be fair to the man, he did have cockroaches poured on his head, put his hands in a box of biting ants and retrieve a star from a pool of baby crocodiles.

"I think I've got to eat some kind of weird stuff," commented Gino when he was told he was going to do a Bushtucker Bonanza. Yep, we guess that a fermented egg, a rhino beetle, cockroach, wittchedy grub, mealworms, beach worms and crocodile tongue might be considered 'weird'.

Jennie Bond (2004)3 of 8

Alone, wet, cold and covered with rats. Not a situation we'd like to get in any time soon, but former Royal correspondent Jennie Bond managed to last a whole 10 minutes locked in a water and rat filled coffin by humming an upbeat tune. We salute you, Ms. Bond.

Joey Essex (2013)4 of 8

Locked in a cold, dark, slimy tomb, we'd be freaking out if we were Joey in his 2013 task. But the TOWIE star powered through and managed to find all twelve hidden stars without uttering a single scream, only stopping to moan 'This is definitely, 100% not reem,' and to comment that the rodents were biting his 'middle parts'.

Mark Wright and Freddie Starr (2011)5 of 8

TOWIE's Mark and hamster-eating comedian Freddie were an oddly matched pair for the 'Greasy Spoon Café' culinary battle, but the resulting Bushtucker trial has to be one of our faves. The couple was challenged to dine on a spoiled egg, blended cockroaches, mealworms and mouse tails, turkey testicles, a camel's toe and a pigs anus.

Martina Navratilova (2008)6 of 8

Tennis pro Martina impressed us all when she shared a plastic bubble helmet with a variety of jungle critters, including grasshoppers, cockroaches, stick insects, spiders and snakes. While we shuddered and hid behind our hands, Martina took it like a champ.

Matt Willis (2006)7 of 8

Poor Matt Willis proved he's no wimp when he munched his way to victory in his Bushtucker Bonanza challenge of 2006. The McBusted star dined out on live mealworms, witchetty grubs, a kangaroo anus and a crocodile penis. Mr Willis managed the whole lot without a single retch, commenting after 'I've got kangaroo anus in my teeth. It's a really good look.'

Kim Woodburn (2009)8 of 8

Kim was submerged in a tank under water, while thousands of cockroaches and other critters were poured on her. As much as we did feel for clean freak Kim, her screeches of "Something's nipping my bosoms" and "It's bitten my bum!" made this trial a timeless classic.

During the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here show last night, Harry Redknapp, John Barrowman MBE, Emily Atack and Fleur East took on the iconic bushtucker trial and were victorious winning all four stars. John competed from the side lines of the trial after spraining his foot in camp.

The Extra Camp team often take part in bushtucker trials that the celebrities have faced and Holly did not shy away from the opportunity to get involved in this iconic trial.

Wearing hot pink pants and cape Holly took the trial by storm last night. Although she did have one odd choice in trial wear – a pink swimming hat. Rumor has it that the red gunge in the trial turns your hair pink. Not ideal for the lovely blonde beauty competing so to keep her locks safe she hid them away.

Holly teamed up with I’m A Celeb queen 2017 Scarlett Moffat, Joel Dommett and Joe Swash to complete the challenge.

Scarlett was up first for the challenge followed shortly by Holly, Joe and Joel. The presenters completed the task just as well as the first celebrities earlier on in the show. It looks as if Holly might make the perfect campmate as well as presenter. I’m A Celeb 2019 perhaps
