Georgia Toffolo And Rebekah Vardy Dry Retch In ‘I’m A Celebrity’ Bushtucker Trial

It wouldn't be I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! if viewers didn't get to watch 'famous' people eating gross things for our entertainment.

Sure, we would probably gag, dry retch, throw up everywhere or even refuse to partake if we were in that scenario, but then again, we're not celebrities who agreed to be sent to the Aussie jungle.

It was Made in Chelsea's Georgia Toffolo and football WAG Rebekah Vardy who had to show the UK whether they have the balls on tonight's Bushtucker Trial.

The reality TV star and football WAG did their best to get through the meal, encouraging each other along the way. At one point, Toff covered her mouth and nearly threw up, and Rebekah was also trying not to gag during the challenge, however they were both on top form describing their meals, with tastes ranging from 'a gone-off anchovy' to 'a baby's nappy'.

The fermented duck's egg soup had Twitter recalling one particular fond memory from Harry Potter...

Everyone was particularly impressed with Toff's cheery disposition throughout the trial, as she optimistically exclaimed, "It might be delish" when confronted with a plate of fish eyes.

However, the third course proved a step too far. Their menu consisted of five dead crickets, five cockroaches, 20 mealworms, one hawkmoth and one huntsman spider. To be fair, at least the dish was served with a delicious side of asparagus, tomatoes and the option of a lemon slice.

Hosts Ant and Dec told the pair they had 45 seconds to down their meal, which is not really a lot of time when you factor in all the squirming. Toff was particularly shocked when the lid was lifted, saying: "Oh my goodness. Oh my God. I can't, I can't do it." Sure enough, she couldn't: the pair spat it out everywhere.

Oh well.

Still, they managed a total of eight stars in return for what looked like a typically gross meal from the I'm A Celebrity kitchen, which is a pretty good result.

Rebekah was earlier excused from taking part in the Bushtucker Trial because of 'medical grounds'. Every year there are a few contestants who are permitted to miss out on trials and, because medical reasons are often private, Ant and Dec describe these situations in pretty vague terms.

However, it turns out that the WAG reportedly suffers from a shellfish allergy.

But the trusty people at ITV thought that no one should be able to get out without having to taste something weird, and therefore tonight's meal consisted of land-based species.

While some people at home gag at the thought of putting something like that anywhere near their mouths, they should know that it's a great source of nutrients.


"These are a high protein, low fat choice that can be rich in vitamin C for immunity and essentially fatty acids to help with brain health," Rick Hay, Nutritional Director at Healthista, tells LADbible.

"They can also contain B vitamins to help with the nervous system. Some believe they will be the protein source of the future."

Amir Khan bottled the first Bushtucker Trial for this year's season. While Toff was being covered in a bed of creepy crawlies, the 30-year-old boxer was responsible for trying to find the key, however when he came across a snake, he looked like he nearly shat himself.

He was labelled a 'wimp', a 'disappointment' and a 'little girl' for his performance. However, he redeemed himself in last night's challenge where he had to unlock a series of holes while water was added to the narrow chamber he was in.
