Holly And Fearne's Celeb Juice Banana Challenge Pushes Innuendo To The Max

Within the next few lines, it is likely that half the men of Britain will have a mini-fantasy going on in their head, not least Keith Lemon.

Celebrity Juice, as you know by now, is back in full swing. In fact, the show is now in its 17th series, having started back in 2008.

For the third series in a row, since returning from her pregnancy, Fearne Cotton captains opposite Holly Willoughby, just like they did for the first eight too.

Keith Lemon, real name Leigh Francis, somehow manages to get away with chairing the hilarious show, in which his celebrity guests have to complete a number of rounds to win points for their team - shaaaaaatttinnnggg! (I make no apologies if you have no idea what I did there).

Such weird challenges include: Don't Show Keith Your Teeth, Lemon Head, and the VT round.

The show isn't without its controversy. Pamela Anderson stormed off the set recently after an old school picture of her appeared, without her say-so.


She reportedly told the producers: "I'm not happy, I have clearance on all my pictures, I'm not happy you showed that." Fair point, not many of us do like those awkwardly-posed, forced-smile images.

With each series the show appears to push the boundaries as far as it can. Tonight is no exception.

One of the challenges will see captains Cotton and Willoughby (who Lemon has paid tribute to after she vowed to 'cover up') carry a banana between them in their mouths.

Let the fantasies begin. Even Lemon warns: "I just wanna say if you're 16 and home right now, and your parents are out, get a box of tissues, you're going to enjoy this."

Holly can be heard sighing at such implications, and even tells Lemon to "shush."

They have to go over a ramp, through a hoop, move around some poles, underneath a limbo stick and to the finish line.


And would you believe it's not the first time that Ms Willoughby has completed a banana-involving trick.

Here's one dug out from the archives of her eating one whole.
