But James, 24, had to put his head in boxes that contained the likes of spiders and giant crabs and unscrew the stars with his tongue!

EastEnders actress Rita aced most of the questions but couldn’t stop herself screaming and jumping around in her box.

Viewers were adamant that James had the harder task out of the two of them.

One fan tweeted: “Rita has it b***** easy there #ImACeleb”.

A second wrote: “Pretty sure James had it worse.”

Some unhappy fans even said Rita was complaining too much compared to James!

One tweeted: “Think Rita milked that a bit, James has his head in a box of 30 massive spiders #ImACeleb”.

Another added: “what’s Rita complaining for, James had it worse.”

A third commented: “Rita stop moaning. Poor James has had to put his head in a box full of spiders #ImACeleb.”

Shaking bugs off of herself at the end of the trial, Rita told hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly: “They’re everywhere…in my bra…and they stink!”

Meanwhile, James looked pretty calm considering he had just been licking all manner of things!
