The new series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is now well under the way, and as any fans will know the Bushtucker Trials often involve creepy crawlies, including of course, cockroaches. On last night's episode of I'm a Celebrity: Extra Camp, presenter Joe Swash revealed that he still had a cockroach in his ear, TWO DAYS after taking part in a Bushtucker Trial!

Speaking on I'm a Celebrity: Extra Camp Joe said, "It's not out. I've got a cockroach in my ear, it's been in there two days. It's just squatting. You can smell it dying in my ear. But don't worry though, it's coming out today. I'll bring him in so you can all see him!"

Joe later documented the removal of the little critter on Instagram, for all of his followers to see, with a series of Instagram Stories showing the cockroach in his ear, before being safely removed. Joe then finally took to Instagram to post a photo of the little offender in a plastic case!

I'm a Celebrity kicked off on Sunday 18th November with new co-host Holly Willoughby alongside Dec Donnelly, whilst popular host Ant McPartlin takes time out to recover from his addictions. This made it the first time in the show's history that Dec has presented with somebody else!

A few days after the show started, TV presenter Noel Edmonds was then confirmed as a new celebrity to enter the jungle. Noel made quite the impression when he entered the jungle as a latecomer. Dressed as an emperor, tensions began to rise in the camp as Noel had complete control over what the campmates did and was completely exempt from doing any tasks or Bushtucker trials.

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
