Last night, the campmates learned that, in a dramatic first for the series, they’d be choosing who was voted out of camp next.
They each voted in a secret ballot and have woken up unhappy about the prospect of having a hand in who is leaving that morning.
Helen says of voting: “It makes you feel like s***.”
Toff says of voting: “I’m not happy about my decision. I just felt I had to vote for someone.”
Myleene adds: “I’m now thinking, did I do the right thing?”
Amir notes: “This is not a holiday, it’s a competition and there has to be one Legend, one winner.”
Jordan concurs: “At the end of the day there’s only going to be one winner.”
Getting emotional about the fact someone is going to leave, Paul gets teary.
He says: “I can’t stop leaking sometimes…”
Complimenting the fact he shows his emotions, Toff tells Paul: “It’s wonderful.”
Ant and Dec arrive in camp to reveal who will be leaving immediately. But who’s packing their bags for good?
CAMP TALKS CORRIE
In camp, talk turns to Coronation Street.
Discussing a previous storyline, Jordan says: “Tyrone used to get a clip around the ear from his wife.”
Naming the character Andy says: “Kirsty.”
Jordan says: “Some proper wicked storylines on Corrie.”
Andy adds: “The amount of letters that Al [actor Alan Halsall] got from that. A lot of men get domestically abused and [are] too ashamed to admit it.”
Jordan says: “So that storyline helped a few geezers.”
CAROL TAKES ON THE TRIAL AND PICKS A CAMPMATE TO HELP
Myleene reads out the latest Bush Bulletin to camp, revealing that the next Trial is entitled ‘Tanks of Torment’.
She announces: “The campmate taking part is Carol.”
Carol reacts: “Yes!”
Carol is told: “You must now choose one of your fellow campmates to assist you.”
Carol immediately says: “Fatima.”
In the Bush Telegraph Fatima says: “My name came out of Carol’s mouth within seconds!”
Arriving at the Trial clearing Fatima says of their pairing: “Here we have the brains and the brawn. It’s going to be a good combination.”
Describing the Trial, Ant tells the pair: “This is Tanks of Torment. Carol, it’s your job to swim through the four sections of the tank, collecting stars as you go.”
Dec adds: “You will only be able to move through the sections once Fatima has raised the doors that separate them.”
As Fatima cranks the doors, Carol has 10 minutes to collect 10 stars.
Admitting there could be a problem, Carol says: “My bottom always floats to the top… it’s the most buoyant thing in Britain. So getting down underwater is my biggest problem.”
Frogs, crocodiles and snakes are among the critters joining Carol in the tank. As she nervously says: “I’m not sure I want to do it.”
Will Carol take on the challenge? Will Fatima’s athlete’s grit help her through? Or will this watery Trial be a wash out?
NEW CAMPMATES DEAN GAFFNEY AND JOE SWASH ARRIVE AND IMMEDIATELY FACE A TRIAL
Little do Carol and Fatima know, they’re not the only celebrities undertaking a Trial.
Two more returning campmates – actors Dean Gaffney and Joe Swash – have secretly arrived in sundrenched South Africa and are immediately plunged into a drinking Trial, described as one of the most disgusting ever.
Named ‘Flipping Disgusting’, the duo meet with Ant and Dec to find out they will be drinking some gruesome concoctions in a bid to win some treats for the individual campmates.
Joe admits: “I’m really nervous. I feel like I’m doing this for the first time again, which ain’t good.”
Dean says of returning: “I’m probably more scared now than I was then!”
Do they have the stomachs for this latest Trial? What’s on the line for their fellow campmates and how will they react when two more celebs arrive in camp?
