I’m a Celebrity review: Female reality stars put non-performing male ‘celebs’ to shame
Last night’s trial undertaken by Fearne in the Panic Pit was the most terrifying of all this year. The poor girl was lying underground partially buried in a pile of sand and stone while 30 jungle pythons were released into the pit with her. The horror started when one snake slithered across her face and another wrapped itself around her neck. The sheer panic of Fearne was so palpable that I was breaking out into a cold sweat on the sofa. How the girl did not wet herself I do not know. Even Ant and Dec above ground were feeling the fear as they watched the proceedings over monitors of the frightful position Fearne was in.
Meanwhile, Vicky was pure joy to watch dressed as a Flying Squirrel flying through the air to collect nuts containing Dingo Dollars. Her delight in the task showed how much she was really enjoying her time there. Youthful enthusiasm in full swing here! Shame they missed out on the chocolate cake in the end by picking the incorrect answer.
When I first heard that girls from TOWIE and Geordie Shore were entering the jungle, my initial thought was very much ‘okay, so throw in these girls for the bikini shots and shower scenes’. There were of course the bikini shots as fully expected, but I was not prepared for the way these girls threw themselves into the challenges with guts and determination to bring back the bacon, so to speak. Perhaps they had something to prove in order to shake off the notoriety of the shows they came from. I, for one, have to well and truly revise my opinions of Vicky and Fearne. They have come off the best in this year’s show, which begs the question; what have Duncan Bannatyne and Tony Hadley contributed to the camp at all?
They do not participate in the challenges, preferring to leave it to the young ones to slog it out and bring home the stars to feed them, while they bicker like children in the playground with Lady C and complain about the dirty state of the pots. Poor Fearne was rudely awakened one morning by Duncan waving a pot over her head. These men are real deadweights in my opinion, and do not contribute at all to the camp. On looking back at their time in the jungle, they must surely ask themselves, ‘what did I actually do or contribute during my time there’? Although I doubt if they would be capable of any such self realisation. They will be hard pressed to find much to say, apart from the bickering, which they were champions at.
One of these plucky girls surely deserves to win the crown. Those two men must hang their heads in shame when they leave the jungle.
