The second episode of BBC One’s Freeze the Fear saw the celebrities take on more sub-zero challenges.

Last week, the celebrities had to jump into a freezing cold lake.

Last night, things weren’t as extreme for the celebrities.

Yesterday’s episode saw the celebrities pushed to their limits… by taking a really cold shower for 15 seconds.

Things did get a lot more interesting later on in the show, however, when Wim Hof guided the celebrities through some breathing techniques.

These weren’t any old breathing techniques though! These breathing techniques saw some of the celebrities break down in tears.

Whilst spending 15 minutes in freezing cold showers may have been challenging for the celebrities, viewers weren’t impressed.

Many headed to Twitter to moan about the cold shower challenge.

“Had high hopes for #FreezeTheFear and I’m sat watching a bunch of people have a 15 second cold shower?” one viewer tweeted.

“A cold shower. Really. It’s hardly SAS is it?” another wrote.

I’m watching people having a shower...And it’s going very slowly,” a third said.

“Who’d have thought 20 minutes of people taking cold showers could be so… utterly boring,” another wrote.

“I can’t believe the BBC has a show about celebrities taking a cold shower and then being congratulated on the achievement,” a fifth moaned.

Freeze the Fear review

“So tonight we watched a bunch of Z list celebs having a shower followed by them lying on the floor crying. Can’t wait for next week,” one viewer wrote.

However, some viewers really enjoyed last night’s show.

“#FreezeTheFear was POWERFUL tonight. And they were just BREATHING,” one viewer said.

I am loving #FreezeTheFear it’s now got me wanting to get the cold showers and those breathing techniques Wim got the celebs to do,” another wrote. 

Freeze the Fear continues on Tuesday, April 26 at 9pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
