Argh! Sam Quek got a cockroach in her EAR during Bushtucker Trial

The Bushtucker Trials on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! are hardly known for being a walk in the park, or jungle.

But the latest one, which saw Olympian Sam Quek and comedian Joel Dommett have to face the Wicked Windmill, was perhaps one of the worst ever.

The duo were strapped into sails of a windmill in a capsule and rotating at speed while having to answer a series of Australia-based questions.

Of course, in typical I’m A Celeb style thousands of jungle critters were poured into the capsule they were inside: 15,000 meal worms, 40,000 crickets, 50,000 cockroaches and two green ant nests.

However, one creepy little critter managed to find its way into Sam’s ear as she was being spun around and she cried out in horror.

“I’ve got one in my ear, seriously I can’t hear,” she wailed.

Jungle doctor Medic Bob had to come out to remove the critter from her ear before the trial could continue.

During the challenge, Sam and Joel failed to answer who the Prime Minister of Australia is, but they did manage to guess the year Kylie Minogue released her mega-hit Spinning Around.

Viewers were completely grossed-out over Sam’s unfortunate altercation with the cockroach.

Fans were in awe of her for carrying on, though.

It was an entertaining – if not very difficult – challenge, to say the least.

They managed to win three stars out of the eight possible but, considering how tough the trial was, their fellow campers were pretty pleased with that.
