I’m a Celebrity Round-Up: Caitlyn Jenner, Ian Wright and other stars tackle Australian jungle

It’s the time of year when it begins to feel like Christmas is on its way. And what gets us more in the Christmas spirit than watching a number of celebrities tackle critter-filled tasks in the middle of the Australian Jungle.

We are almost a week in and things are already heating up. Between radio DJs Roman Kemp and Adele Roberts tiffing over Adele’s luxury item – a photo of Jane McDonald, of course – and the entire British public already rooting for Caitlyn Jenner to be crowned Queen of the Jungle, it appears to be a very entertaining cast.

We saw the split-up of the group on the first day after they went into pairs to complete tasks which would place them into Snake Rock, the dreaded ‘rough’ camp, and the main camp where they would receive an evening of jungle luxury, well, beds and food.

Caitlyn Jenner, Ian Wright, James Haskell, Jaqueline Jossa, Andrew Maxwell and Kate Garraway had the misfortune of spending the first night in Snake Rock eating the small portions of beans and rice.

It took just a few hours for Caitlyn to spill the beans on her life as a Jenner and living with the Kardashians. She is already proving to be a fan favourite and fellow campmate Jaqueline Jossa is no exception. As admitted on the first night of the show, she is the Kardashians’ biggest fan and is just as excited as the rest of us to see what stories Caitlyn will tell over the next 3 weeks.

Adele Robertson, Nadine Coyle, Roman Kemp and Myles Stephenson spent their night in the main camp, taking in their new surroundings.

Fans have taken to twitter to demand I’m a Celeb provide subtitles for the Northern Irish Girl’s Aloud member, Nadine Coyle. Though her accent is thick, we all heard her admit she doesn’t actually know any of the lyrics to the iconic Girls Aloud songs on last nights episode.

This is the first year the producers have banned eating live insects since facing a lot of backlash the last few seasons, but that doesn’t mean to say that the trials are any less gruesome. So far there have been three of the famous Bush Tucker Trials, Caitlyn and Kate were voted to do the first trial. Arguably one of the less horrid trials the show has seen, the pair had to drop five balls each into a bucket whilst lying in perspex boxes high in the air filled with, of course, multiple critters.

Snake Rock took on the helmet challenge, where each camp mate’s hamlet was filled with different critters and in true I’m a Celeb style, suspiciously matched to the camp mates’ fears.

The two camps were reunited on Tuesday night after spending a couple of nights apart.

And last night, Roman and Adele took on the Just Desserts eating challenge, where Roman’s dad took to twitter to admit he was voting for his son to eat some form of balls. No such luck for Martin Kemp, but he did have to eat a bull’s penis.

Tonight we will see the introduction of two new camp mates, Coronation Street star Andy Whyment and former EastEnders actor Cliff ‘Minty’ Parisi, added into the mix as the next stage commences.
