During tonight’s show, Richard joined Ant and Dec in the castle kitchen nightmare area.

Explaining the trial, Ant said: “This is castle kitchen nightmares, you have 10 minutes to find 10 stars hidden within the trial. Each star you find is a meal for the camp tonight.

“They could be hidden anywhere, in the walls, in the pots, even down the rubbish shoot.

“When you find a star, pop it in your star bag. Only stars that are in the bag at the end of the trial will count.”

But while the instructions appeared pretty simple, Richard struggled throughout the trial.

He shot head first into a chute before landing in rotten fruit and veg.

At one point, Richard struggled to unknot a string with a star attached.

As the klaxon sounded, the presenter only managed to get four out of ten stars.

Fans of the show rushed to Twitter to comment on the “difficult” trial.
