I’m A Celebrity viewers switch off “disgusting” Bushtucker trial

Fans said they couldn't watch the eating challenge

I’m A Celebrity viewers switched off in their droves during the “disgusting” Bushtucker eating trial on last night’s show.

Host Holly Willoughby also couldn’t watch and had to turn away or cover her eyes as Noel Edmonds and Harry Redknapp tucked into sheep’s brains.

The pair even had to pop fish eyes with their teeth and then drink the juice from a goblet.

Shortly before, Noel and Harry were given a series of live critters, including cockroaches and wichetty grubs, which they had to hold in their mouths for a minute.

But the trial left many fans grossed out and many took to social media to say they’d had to switch off.

One tweeted: “Had to turn #imaceleb off…..hubby and I were feeling too sick! The sound of those fish eyes popping.”

Another wrote: “Fish eyes. Can’t watch. I’ve even muted the TV b/c of the crunching and squelching.”

A third posted: “Crossed a line with that trial guys. That’s not entertainment that’s torture. We had to turn over @imacelebrity.”

Echoing their sentiments, Holly averted her eyes and said: “Oh, I can’t watch that. I can’t look. I just can’t look at it. Oh my God, it’s the sounds.

“Oh my God, every time I look up there’s one coming out of his mouth.”

Noel and Harry successfully completed the trial and won a maximum 11 stars for camp.
