Holly Willoughby 'to brave her first Bushtucker trial this weekend'!

It took some convincing!

She has squealed and squirmed her way through the series, but I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! host Holly Willoughby will face her own Bushtucker trial this weekend!

The 37-year-old has apparently agreed to take on the infamous Cyclone challenge, alongside Extra Camp's Joe Swash, Scarlett Moffatt and Joel Dommett.

It's believed show producers managed to convince Holly despite her hesitance about getting involved with trials.

A source told The Daily Star: "We never thought that we would even get Holly out to Australia, let alone doing a Bushtucker."

They added: “There won’t be any bugs involved but it’ll be a treat for viewers. We’re going to throw everything at her. Holly’s going to get wet and wild!"

The Cyclone, which is taken on by the final celebrity campmates every year, sees the stars pelted with giant water canons and objects as they attempt to collect stars on a huge obstacle course.

Joel and Scarlett have already tacked the mammoth task, when they were finalists in 2016.

Sair Khan and Malique ThompsonDwyer's 'Takeaway' Bushtucker challenge also saw Holly gag and turn away as they ate the likes of camel's hoof and pig snouts!

But Holly has certainly impressed with her co-hosting with Dec Donnelly, 43, this series. She has been standing in for Ant McPartlin, also 43, as he takes time away from the spotlight following his drink-driving charge.
