Holly Willoughby’s cyclone challenge has viewers in hysterics

She did brilliantly. Sort of!

| Updated:

As presenter of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Holly Willoughby doesn’t have to get involved in those awful Bushtucker trials the contestants do every year.

But, as we enter the final few days of this year’s series, the TV star decided to give one a go – And. It. Was. Amazing.

Viewers were in hysterics as the 37-year-old joined the Extra Camp presenters to compete in the Celebrity Cyclone challenge, taking on a huge waterslide covered in messy obstacles.

The brilliant segment began with Extra presenters Scarlett Moffatt, Joel Dommett and Joe Swash – all dressed up in superhero costumes – complaining that they didn’t have a fourth member to make up their team.

Just as they were ready to give up hope, Holly arrived, dressed to match in a pink cape and lycra hotpants.

She also wore a swimming cap over her head, joking: “I am not a natural blonde, I know you might be shocked by that, but I don’t want pink hair.”

The group couldn’t stop giggling as they stood on the spinning plate, before Scarlett, 28, dived into the fray.

“I’ve got little limbs!” Scarlett shrieked as she tried to grab stars.

Mum-of-three Holly quickly joined her, falling over and flailing as she was blasted by water cannons.

She screamed: “Oh my God, it’s so cold!” as she fell over several more times.

Eventually, Joe, 36, made it to the top and they all cheered.

Holly jokingly shouted: “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!” as Joe laughed.

When she tried out a challenge alongside her usual presenting partner, Phillip Schofield in the ITV studio, she couldn’t stop shrieking.

Two months on, she’s doing trials and even posed on Sunday with a snake wrapped around her neck alongside co-presenter Declan Donnelly.
