We’ve seen our fair share of vom-inducing Bushtucker Trials over the years. In fact, there can’t be many animals left whose dangly-bits haven’t been noshed on by celebs and then chucked back up behind a tree. Last night’s head-to-head between Fatima Whitbread and Pat Sharp reached new levels of gross-out, though.
The stakes were high, with the loser going home and you could see the determination in their eyes as the pair headed down to meet Ant and Dec. We actually broke out in a bit of a sweat as they had scorpions and spiders poured on their heads, but it was NOTHING compared to the final round.
Fatima was first up to have over seven thousand cockroaches poured on her head and other than blowing air out of her nose to keep the bugs away, she seemed to be coping ok. That was until we discovered she was actually trying to sneeze out a cockroach that had crawled up her nose and got stuck. EWW! But the pièce de résistance came, when medic Bob used a syringe to flush out the creepy crawly, sending it shooting across the jungle. Worst. Thing. Ever. Fats really wasn’t lying when she said, “I won’t go down without a fight.”
Emily to visit Mark in Essex!
We were a bit sad to see Uncle Pat leave after the trial, but nothing improves our mood like some cringey Mark Wright flirtation. Even WE couldn’t have come up with a more brilliantly manufactured attempt at getting Mark and Emily Scott together. Forcing him to watch her jump around on a bouncy castle in a bikini, covered in jelly slime? Bravo, Celeb. Bravo!
The pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they slid around, although we’re sure it was just for support and not because they fancy the pants off each other… ahem. “I ended up landing on top of her by accident” did you say Mark? How terrible, we bet you were really upset about that awful disaster.
The cheesy chatting up continued back at camp, with Mark quizzing Emily on various topics, all of which seemed to have a skilfully inbuilt answer. “Essex boy or American boy?” asked Mark. “Depends who the Essex boy is” answered Emily. Agh, just kiss already! Please! It’s almost worse than Edward and Bella in Twilight. Mark did invite her to visit him in Essex after the show though, to which she replied, “I’ll definitely come check it out!” Hmm, we’ll see.
Lorraine Chase was the next evictee last night, with Tedward in tow, but it was Emily who was in the bottom with her. If we were you Em, we’d get snogging Mark fast, if you want to stay in!
Did you think that was the worst trial ever? Were you sad to see Pat go? Do you think Mark and Emily will get it on before they leave? Is the romance genuine or an attempt at securing votes? We want to know what you think!
