Has the Live Bushtucker Trial just divided the I'm A Celebrity campers for good?

Could this be the test that throws a spanner in the works of the previously happy campers…?

It looks like the I’m A Celebrity! team have been divided after half the campers pulled off a 6-0 win in the show’s annual Live Bushtucker Trial.

The yellow and blue teams went head-to-head, taking turns to complete stomach-churning challenges using just their mouths to achieve stars for their teams.

Winning every one of the six tasks, the yellow team earned themselves a luxury spa day in the jungle, while the losing blues were condemned to time in the “rancid retreat”.

It was another victory for the yellows, who had already won a meal of emu rump in the show’s Hungry Games, marking the first time the campers had been forced to eat separate meals.

JLS star Jordan Banjo was first to beat actor Larry Lamb as they both bobbed for stars in tanks of slime and critters.

Former Strictly dancer Ola Jordan beat Gogglebox star Scarlett Moffatt to the bottom of a cup of blended fish guts, then retired footballer Wayne Bridge swallowed a bowl full of dead bugs before comedian Joel Dommett.

Actor Adam Thomas managed to move a bowl of offal with his mouth before athlete Sam Quek and presenter Carol Vorderman scraped another win for the yellows as she slurped through three glasses of blended pigs’ eyeballs, pigs’ brains and pigs’ anuses seconds before model Lisa Snowdon.

Newcomers broadcaster Danny Baker and Homes Under The Hammer presenter Martin Roberts were the last to take on their first Bushtucker Trial, with Baker retrieving his star from a box of pythons before Roberts.

Danny and Martin’s entry to the jungle sparked a mixed reaction from the campers, who have already been on the show together for almost a week.

Danny, 59, moved Scarlett to tears as he told her about his battle with cancer.

Meanwhile, some of Danny’s team mates expressed concern that he was “not as positive” as they were, when he struggled to stomach a paltry meal of rice and beans.

The unfortunate blues will now be subjected to the “rancid retreat” which will see them take a dip in a pool bubbling with critters.

:: I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Saturday at 9.25pm on ITV.
