I’m A Celebrity 2019: Caitlyn Jenner favourite to face Bushtucker Trial again



I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! was back with a bang on ITV last night.

Geordie duo Ant McPartlin, returning from his presenting sabbatical after Holly Willoughby stood in for him in the jungle last year, and Dec Donnelly reunited to provide viewers with the witty wisecracking they’ve come to expect down the years.

And the show felt bigger than ever before with helicopters, yachts, speed-boats and planes all on hand to transport the ten contestants around Australia.

After a swimming race, which singer Myles Stephenson narrowly won ahead of former rugby player James Haskell, the ten celebrities were split into five pairs and pitted against eachother to win a place in the better camp, which has superior sleeping, cleaning and eating facilities.

Stephenson chose to team up with radio presenter Roman Kemp, and the duo smashed the new-and-improved Plank Challenge to bag the first of two places on offer in the posh camp.

Navigating terrifyingly high winds as they walked a plank 334 feet above Surfer’s Paradise, the pair’s impressively quick reaction times on the buzzer saw off competition from former footballer Ian Wright, actress Jacqueline Jossa, TV presenter Kate Garroway and comedian Andrew Maxwell.

Radio presenter Adele Roberts and former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle also booked their place in the better camp, after the latter had arrested her visible nerves to sky-dive 5000ft from the air alongside former athlete and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner, who was teamed up with Haskell.

Roberts and Coyle were around five minutes quicker unscrewing the magic stars, which in the show’s textbook fashion were hidden amongst several creepy-crawlies.

To compound Jenner’s woes, it was revealed at the end of the show that she and Garroway will face this year’s first Bushtucker Trial, named ‘Bugged Off’, together.

Jenner is currently odds-on 8/11 favourite to be voted to face her second trial in a row tonight.

Garroway is 2/1 to face the same fate, while Wright is 3/1 and Jossa 13/2 to face their first.

One thing it seems likely no contestants will have to do this year is eat live bugs following serial complaints regarding cruelty to animals.

An ITV source reportedly told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat that producers have now decided no live bugs will be eaten in the trials:

“They have been planning this for some time and actually last year beach worms were the only critters eaten live, but this time around they’ve decided to implement the change fully and permanently.”
