Freddie Starr Tackles First Bushtucker Trial
Comedian makes it into jungle, but may live to regret it after maggots challenge...
It seems Freddie Starr's health insurance was sorted out in time for the veteran comedian to enter the jungle for I'm A Celebrity - but he may have swiftly been regretting it.
The 68-year-old was the first contestant to have to undergo one of the show's infamous Bushtucker Trials, dunking for plastic stars with his mouth in a tank of maggots in order to win meals for the rest of the campmates.
He didn't seem to mind too much though, saying: "I don't blame anyone. It was just one of those things."
Freddie did manage to get out of doing a tandem skydive jump into the jungle. Producers thought it wise to leave him out of that because he underwent a quadruple heart bypass op last year.
And he might have been thankful if he saw the footage of Mark Wright and Antony Cotton looking terrified as they plummeted towards the earth.
In other IAC news, "this year's Myleene" Jessica Jane Clement is reported to have revealed that she won't be wearing a bra while on the show and also that she favours those Brazilian-style bikinis with the tiny bottoms.
We predict a surge of interest among dads in this year's show.
