120,000 critters on I'm A Celebrity trial is too much nope for Twitter

Four of the I’m A Celebrity contestants have successfully completed the first Bushtucker Trial of the series – but it’s the viewers who need some time to get over it.

Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt, 25, ex-Strictly professional Ola Jordan, 34, Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo, 23, and Olympic gold medal winner Sam Quek, 28, faced the Tomb of Torment on the show’s second episode – requiring them to lie in a dark cave as 120,000 bugs, rats and spiders were dumped on top of them.

That’s the most critters ever featured on one of the show’s challenges, by the way.

And it was 120,000 too many for the viewers, who decided the show had crossed the line of anything they would ever be able to do…

Just watching it triggered all sorts of reactions…

And feelings that are, perhaps, a little too close to home…

But notice that no-one has actually admitted they are switching to another channel.

We really do love to torture ourselves, don’t we?
