What happened on tonight’s I’m A Celebrity?

Actress Jessica Plummer, author Giovanna Fletcher, Corrie‘s Beverley Callard and West End star Ruthie Henshall all picked out sticks with red markings, meaning they had to take on Mean Massage.

The challenge involved them lying down on massage tables while all manner of horrific beasties crawled over them for 12 minutes.

Hilariously, Giovanna said at one point: “I think one is near my foo-foo. That’s not wanted!”

Some of the others, like DJ Jordan North did during his trials earlier in the series, tried to go to their “happy place”.

But they completed it, winning a special treat for their I’m A Celeb campmates.

Why did Vernon Kay get teary on I’m A Celeb?

They each had to choose one person who they thought should be able to experience a luxury spa at Gwrych Castle. And when Beverley chose Vernon, he got a bit emotional.

The former Family Fortunes host grew teary as Bev announced she had chosen him.

This is heaven, Bev, you’re an absolute beauty.

Giovanna, meanwhile, chose athlete Hollie Arnold, while Jess picked Giovanna and Ruthie nominated singer Russell Watson, as it’s is birthday.

Vernon said, as they enjoyed their treat: “I feel a million dollars, I really do. I’m ready for a Saturday night out.”
