The I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! semi-final was beamed from our tellyboxes and into our eyes tonight, which was delightful. Jake smashed Little Jake into some bright yellow pants, Mel got VERY competitive over a dodgy award and Edwina was given the boot. Her's all the highlights from tonight's show.



Is that a tear we see, Jake Quickenden? Or maybe a game plan? Want to win do ya, Jake? Tinchy Stryder and Kendra Wilkinson left the jungle last night, leaving just four campmates for tonight’s semi-final. The guys got to talking about where they want to be in five years time. Edwina Currie thinks Jake might have a book out next year but he says he couldn’t even write 11 pages. If you say so, Jakey Boy! Melanie Sykes says she wants to be married with a nice man and fails to suggest it could be Jake in any way #pied.


The group are handed their costumes for the challenge which sees them flying up and down a waterslide to catch some stars. They’re dressed up as REALLY poor superheroes. Anyway, forget that, because the most important bit is that we can see the boys’ bulges. Jake says: “Your’s looks bigger than mine!” Don’t worry Jake (see above), you’ve got a pretty face. We'd pick you over Foggy any day!


This actually looked like the most fun Bushtucker Trial EVER! The group had to charge up a giant slippery slide while clinging on to a big yellow star each. They were pelted with water and all kinds of rubbish. Jake actually thought he was superman and flew just like him down the slide except, erm, on his six-pack, Mel couldn’t stop laughing and Edwina just refused to get up at the end LOL. Oh yeah, Foggy returned to the camp and mooned his pals, as you do. Edwina squealed, “Put it away!”, with her eyes completely transfixed on his bum. We see what you’re doing there, Edwina!


Edwina was described as "a saucy little minx" by Jimmy Bullard after his exit. So, let your imagtion run wild by looking at her munching on this sausage. Nice, isn't it? No? No, it REALLY isn't! Well, they worked hard for the food in that trial. Doesn't really seem like all that effort now! Maybe they'll get a banquet tomorrow!


The Jungle Awards took place in camp which led to Mel's competitive side coming out IN FORCE. She wanted to win EVERYTHING and she really didn't. She was desperate for the Hardest Working Campmate Award, which Michael Buerk won, and he wasn't even there! Poor Mel. Jake won the award for Vainest Campmate which he begrudginly accepted. Err, Jake, it sounds about right, mate. Mel won Best Cook. You got there in the end, Mel!


Edwina has finished in fourth place and is OUT! She hugged Jake as she left and said she wasn't surprised to be going in any way. OK, if you say so, Eddie. She told Ant and Dec: "Did you see my fingers crossed?" We don't quite think that's what helped you get the boot, love.

Opening up about her time in the camp, she said: "I thought it would be horrible. They were a terrific bunch of people, they truly were... Really, really privelaged to know them... It’s physically hard. I’ve done a fair bit of camping but not like this."

She also spoke about THAT argument with Kendra after the former Playboy Bunny said she lived only for herself and Edwina said she couldn't because she was a mother and BLAH! Of course, it was all Kendra's fault.

She said: "I suspect that people in her life have backed off and said sorry, sorry, sorry! Oh, but I don’t!"

When asked who she wants to win, she concluded: "My Jakey. He’s a star, he’s a star in the making and he doesn’t even know it!"

Tune in to ITV1 for the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! final tomorrow at 9pm.

GALLERY: All the WORST I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Bushtucker Trials EVER!


I'm A Celebrity 2014: The WORST Bushtucker Trials EVER!

Dean Gaffney (2006)1 of 8

Dean Gaffney (2006)

Ex-EastEnder Dean Gaffney showed off his impressive ability to yelp like an injured animal in his 2006 trial. To be fair to the man, he did have cockroaches poured on his head, put his hands in a box of biting ants and retrieve a star from a pool of baby crocodiles.

Gino Du2019Acampo (2009)2 of 8

Gino D’Acampo (2009)

"I think I've got to eat some kind of weird stuff," commented Gino when he was told he was going to do a Bushtucker Bonanza. Yep, we guess that a fermented egg, a rhino beetle, cockroach, wittchedy grub, mealworms, beach worms and crocodile tongue might be considered 'weird'.

Jennie Bond (2004)3 of 8

Jennie Bond (2004)

Alone, wet, cold and covered with rats. Not a situation we'd like to get in any time soon, but former Royal correspondent Jennie Bond managed to last a whole 10 minutes locked in a water and rat filled coffin by humming an upbeat tune. We salute you, Ms. Bond.

Joey Essex (2013)4 of 8

Joey Essex (2013)

Locked in a cold, dark, slimy tomb, we'd be freaking out if we were Joey in his 2013 task. But the TOWIE star powered through and managed to find all twelve hidden stars without uttering a single scream, only stopping to moan 'This is definitely, 100% not reem,' and to comment that the rodents were biting his 'middle parts'.

Mark Wright and Freddie Starr (2011)5 of 8

Mark Wright and Freddie Starr (2011)

TOWIE's Mark and hamster-eating comedian Freddie were an oddly matched pair for the 'Greasy Spoon Café' culinary battle, but the resulting Bushtucker trial has to be one of our faves. The couple was challenged to dine on a spoiled egg, blended cockroaches, mealworms and mouse tails, turkey testicles, a camel's toe and a pigs anus.

Martina Navratilova (2008)6 of 8

Martina Navratilova (2008)

Tennis pro Martina impressed us all when she shared a plastic bubble helmet with a variety of jungle critters, including grasshoppers, cockroaches, stick insects, spiders and snakes. While we shuddered and hid behind our hands, Martina took it like a champ.

Matt Willis (2006)7 of 8

Matt Willis (2006)

Poor Matt Willis proved he's no wimp when he munched his way to victory in his Bushtucker Bonanza challenge of 2006. The McBusted star dined out on live mealworms, witchetty grubs, a kangaroo anus and a crocodile penis. Mr Willis managed the whole lot without a single retch, commenting after 'I've got kangaroo anus in my teeth. It's a really good look.'

Kim Woodburn (2009)8 of 8

Kim Woodburn (2009)

Kim was submerged in a tank under water, while thousands of cockroaches and other critters were poured on her. As much as we did feel for clean freak Kim, her screeches of "Something's nipping my bosoms" and "It's bitten my bum!" made this trial a timeless classic.
