However, Russell then has to put his face in a barrel of fish guts and try and dig out the correct punchline.

As the klaxon sounds, he has 30 seconds to find it.

The clip ends with the campmates cheering him on as he buries his face in the barrel.

Will they be able to win all the stars for camp?

Meanwhile, at the end of Tuesday night’s show, Russell and Ruthie were announced as the new campmates.

What did Ruthie and Russell say on I’m A Celebrity?

Russell said: “They’re going to see a different side to Russell Watson.”

In addition, Ruthie added: “There’s a big difference in the known and the unknown and we’re in the unknown.

“It’s really a bit scary. Going in late you’re suddenly feeling much more on show. You’ve got to bring something to the table.”

Meanwhile, Russell said: “Don’t think it’s going to be fun at all. I don’t really want to think about the bugs at the moment.”

Ruthie admitted: “I think I’m a tough cookie but I am a bit terrified.”

Meanwhile, viewers shared their thoughts, with some saying they didn’t want any additions to the camp.
