The trial, called viper pit, will see the celebrity put in a pit full of snakes. Emily Atack was the unlucky star to be voted to do the trial.

The campmates have been split into two camps, with snake rock being the only ones eligible for the public to vote to do the trial.

But when Dec ruled Anne out on medical grounds, the nation breathed a collective sigh.

Many took to Twitter to say she shouldn’t have been allowed into the jungle in the first place if she couldn’t take part in the trials.

Viewers also saw Anne break down in tears saying she was already close to quitting the show after her team lost the challenge and ended up with the basic camp and basic rations.

Ex-EastEnders star Rita Simons offered comfort to her campmate and everyone rallied round her.

Fans were also divided over the new partnership of Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly after usual co-host Ant McPartlin took time off after going to rehab and being arrested for drink driving.

Some fans urged others to give Holly a chance, but others just missed Ant too much and insisted the banter between the current hosts wasn’t up to scratch.

So far, it seems John Barrowman and Harry Redknapp are early favourites to win, with people already calling John as their favourite.
