Adam Thomas faced a brutal trial in the final of I'm A Celebrity

Adam Thomas has been given the nickname Mr Bushtucker Trial by hosts Ant and Dec.

And during his last ever trial on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! the Emmerdale star was pushed to his limits.

Adam’s final task involved his ultimate fear: spiders.

The actor, 28, has an extreme phobia of the critters and sought hypnotherapy to help him combat his fear before heading into the jungle.

But he kept his cool as he put on a helmet filled with creepy crawlies, including spiders, that scurried all over his face.

Elated after completing the trial, he cried: “It was so bad in there, I could hardly breathe. I did it! I knew you were going to put spiders into the last trial.”

Fans were squirming along with him while watching at home:

Well done, Adam.
