Ant and Dec’s first ever Bushtucker Trial

During I’m A Celebrity… A Jungle Story, viewers also got to see hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly take on their first ever Bushtucker Trial.

The presenting duo, who usually watch the celebs put through the torturous challenges safely from the sidelines, got stuck in to three trials involving snakes, spiders, cockroaches and other creepy crawlies.

They also disgusted viewers by chowing down on culinary horrors such as fish eyes, blended cockroaches and a pig penis.

All in all, viewers on social media said they enjoyed the episode, however a number felt puzzled that it didn’t mention Holly Willoughby.

The This Morning star stepped in as a guest presenter in 2018 while Ant took a break from his TV career, following his drink driving conviction.
