I’m A Celebrity: Shocked viewers slam ITV and brand final Bushtucker Trials ‘torture’

Hard to watch at times

| Updated:

Fans of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have accused ITV of ‘torture’ after putting the three finalists through absolutely horrific Bushtucker Trials in the last episode of the series.

In tonight’s (08.12.19) final, Jacqueline, Andy and Roman all had to do Trials on their own.

Jacqueline was tied down spreadeagle in a giant star and covered in thousands of creepy crawlies.

She initially thought she simply had to lie there and allow the critters to crawl all over her, but in a terrifying twist towards the end of the Trial, she was covered in hunstman spiders and told she had to hold one in her mouth for a full minute.

In Andy’s Trial, he had to eat a number of horrible dishes – including a camel’s hoof and giant grub.

But it was the pig’s testicle that got the Corrie actor gagging, and viewers at home rushed to Twitter to reveal how it left them feeling sick.

DJ Roman, the last of the three to take on his final trial of the series, was locked in a coffin and covered in sand, before dozens of snakes were pushed into the container with him.

On Twitter, many viewers thought the Trials were overly harsh – with some slamming producers for putting Jacqueline, in particular, through ‘literal torture’.

One said: “Jacqueline’s trial is literally a form of torture, who the hell approved this?!”

I’m A Celeb isn’t even entertaining this year, literal psychological torture.

Another wrote: “Nice one @romankemp. That was literal torture. #ImACeleb.”

A third put: “I’m A Celeb isn’t even entertaining this year, literal psychological torture man, how Jacqueline Jossa didn’t just gut punch Ant and Dec I honestly do not know #imaceleb.”

Someone else tweeted: “It’s a strange old world where one of Britain’s favourite things is watching Ant and Dec strap a woman down and torture her for 10 minutes. #ImACeleb.”

“Orwell’s 1984 is in action right now on #ImACeleb. Psychological torture, for poor Jacqueline… and everyone watching,” said a fifth.

A sixth said: “Feel like I’m watching some form of torture #ImACeleb.”

“The last three trials are horrific, poor Jaq, Andy and Roman,” wrote another.
