No one can understand why Martin on I'm a Celebrity will drink bugs but won't eat beans and rice

I’m A Celebrity’s … Get Me Out Of Here! offered up its captive celebrity’s a horrific take on a pint down the pub tonight – with blended pig penis, flies and beechworms all on the menu for the 300th bushtucker trial in its history.

The shows gruesome take on the British pub’s favourite promised to be a tough challenge as celebrities were asked to chug the drinks – and for many the challenge reminded them of drinking games they had played themselves.

The biggest question on everyone’s mind though was why Martin Roberts had sulked over having to eat beans and rice in the camp, but happily knocked away the unsavoury blended drinks.

Many though it was because Martin’s royal status was on the line.

And lots were appreciative of the other celebrities who noticed the odd decisions made by Martin.

That’s not to say Martin took the drinks back easy though, with the blended cockroaches particularly troubling his stomach.

Which – one thing everyone could agree on – was hilarious.
