I’m A Celeb viewers brand Bushtucker trial “impossible” and “unfair”

They still managed to get five stars

We were sat on the edge of our seats watching Sunday night’s I’m A Celebrity Bushtucker trial, but not everyone seemed to enjoy it.

The trial, Catch A Falling Star, saw Noel Edmonds and Nick Knowles being forced to throw stars at each other without being able to see, while covered in thousands of creepy crawlies.

In fact, many viewers thought it was unfair and based on luck instead of skill – blasting the whole thing as “impossible”.

The trial saw both TV stars lying on their backs in cages – and covered in bugs – twenty feet above the lake.

While moving, Noel had to grab stars from inside a “hell hole” box full of yet more bugs, before dropping them to Nick below without being able to see anything.

All inside of eleven minutes…

Both men arrived on set confident with DIY SOS presenter Nick saying: “I can’t see why we won’t smash it.”

Noel, 69, then admitted to presenters Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly: “We’re absolutely terrified!”

Noel said his fear of heights was “terrible” as they got to it and the presenters revealed there were 130,000 bugs involved.

Nick and a Noel did their best but struggled to get even half the stars available, as many fans took to social media to complain.

One tweeted: “Poor Nick and Noel. That trial on @imacelebrity is almost impossible!”

Another added: “Am I the only one who thinks the #imacelebrity trial was ridiculously hard?? It was mainly down to luck as it’s not like they didn’t get the stars out of the boxes. Fair play to Noel and Nick for getting the five they got though 👏.”

A third wrote: “Noel and Nick got a ridiculously difficult trial, not either of their faults #ImACeleb,” while another moaned: “@imacelebrity what a ridiculous trial, poor Noel and Nick, near on impossible. I realise you have to up the ante and all but come on now, that’s just not on!!”
