I’m A Celebrity viewers were stunned tonight seeing presenter Vernon Kay take on his last trial of the series.
What happened with Vernon Kay in tonight’s I’m A Celebrity final?
Vernon visibly struggled, wincing in pain as cockroaches bit him all over.
Towards the end of the trial – in which he had to endure the critters for 10 minutes to win starters, drinks and a treat for the campmates’ final dinner – he screamed while whip scorpions crawled all over his face.
But he stuck it out and managed to win all the stars for himself and his fellow finalists Giovanna Fletcher and Jordan North.
At the end, Ant and Dec had to call on a member of the crew to quickly remove a huge cockroach that was biting Vernon’s neck.
And on Twitter, a number of those watching said they thought the trial went too far.
What did I’m A Celeb viewers say about Vernon’s final trial?
On Twitter, one said: “That was too much! Poor Vernon.”
Another tweeted: “That was too much, frankly. Felt like watching torture. #ImACelebrity.”
A third put: “That was TOO MUCH. Literally watching @vernonkay get tortured. Nah, not cool. He better win now!”

Similarly, others called it “hard to watch”.
“Physically couldn’t watch all of @vernonkay last trail,” said one. “That was absolute torture!! Glad he stuck it out as I know I’d have 100% screamed I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.”
Someone else tweeted: “That trial was awful! It was hard to watch! Well done Vernon #ImACelebrity.”
“Horrific watching Vern on the torture table,” one viewer wrote on Twitter. “[It felt like torture] just watching him squirm. #ImACelebrity.”
ED! contacted ITV for comment.

I’m A Celebrity concludes tonight with presenter Vernon, author Giovanna and DJ Jordan in the final.
Former EastEnders star Shane Richie just missed out on a place in the final after he filed to get enough votes to secure a place in the final three.
