As the actor was given the dreaded news that he would follow in the footsteps of Emily Atack and Anne Hegerty and face a trial, he happily responded: ‘I’m game for it.’

Proving the adrenaline was already pumping, later he added, ‘I’m not scared, I’m excited. My nerves have gone up which is good. I’m ready to do something.’

‘The big thing is the fear of not knowing. However that’s the name of this game. You can’t figure things out.’ 

Anne, 60, who won two stars in Tuesday’s Monstrous Monoliths trial added ‘we all feel good because it’s John. Whatever it is he’s going to smash it.’

Nick Knowles, 56, also encouraged John saying ‘if you don’t and you come back with a couple don’t be beating yourself up’. 

He added:  ‘John’s going to do his level best and that’s all we can ask for and really important whether he brings back no stars or ten stars is to give him plenty of support because you feel like you’re trying to do something for the team.

However John later confessed that he was feeling the pressure. ‘I’m just going to do my damndest and my best to get all of the stars. No-one’s eaten yet. it’s up to me.’

John was confronted with a wrecked boat in a pool, below the water was a jungle shipwreck and hidden inside was some very special treasure in the form of the coveted 10 stars.

The star had just  ten minutes to find all of the treasure, with each star that he found worth one meal for camp.

‘Come on I’m John Barrowman. I’m up for it’ he shouted as he started the trial.

Oozing confidence the star waded into the water and shouted ‘Let’s do this.’ 

But to his horror, as he did so a Ranger brought in a large crocodile. the sight of which was too much for John who screamed ‘ahhhh, f**k!’

The klaxon sounded and John confidently searched the bows of the ship looking for stars which were hidden in crates, barrels, boxes, crab pots and chests throughout the area. One was even hidden in a kettle.

‘It’s a little dark and there’s eels and crabs and everything’ he said as Holly and Dec encouraged him.

The final star was tied to a rope that a water python had wrapped itself around. With seconds to spare John finally spotted it and slowly untied the rope, releasing the star.

As the clock ticked down, he made it back to his air pocket. 

The star made his way back to dry land and triumphantly counted out his ten stars.

Speaking to camera, he said: ‘I will admit that I was a little … its always scary when you do something like this because we’re not used to confined spaces. 

‘It’s not something I’d do by choice but I’d say hey lets go diving in a sunken ship with a bunch of animals and snakes… and you put a crocodile in. The eels – urgh. I don’t know how Harry is a fan of jellied eels. I just don’t like them.’

The whimsical star said he would return to camp and pretend that he hadn’t won any stars because ‘I want to see their faces and see who gets nippy with me.’ 

The star’s delight was evident as he cackled while walking back to camp along the bridge. 

After John’s triumph in the Trial he said ‘I’ve been feeling very emotional over the past couple of days but today has lifted my spirits and I am so happy that I am bringing them home 10 stars.’

You did it! As the clock ticked down, he made it back to his air pocket

He returned to camp looking sad, as he pretended that he hadn’t been successful.

‘He’s acting’ said Rita immediately.

John said: ‘The trial was tough. I arrived and there was a huge swimming pool with a ship in it. 

‘Inside there were eels, pythons, shrimp, crabs, all of that and I was hanging on the tank and they said are you ready and I said ready and they said we’ve got a surprise for you and they put in a real large crocodile.’

‘It was just awful . . . But I got 10 stars!’ he shouted in jubilation.

Sair said later: ‘John is so sneaky building the story to the point where I was thinking maybe he didn’t do so well and then all of a sudden he told me he got 10 stars and of course he did. I didn’t doubt him for a second.’

And John said: ‘When you go out you know there are nine people and they’re relying on you for dinner and thank goodness I got dinner for everyone.’

Harry added ‘John did great. I had no doubt he would do it though.’      

The episode began with the former campmates from Snake Rock revelling in the newfound luxury of Croc Creek, having reunited with their fellow celebs.    

Fleur revealed that Harry had given up his bed for her and John had given up his for Anne.

‘I love my bed. I actually slept last night and John’s given me his bed and Nick’s given Anne his pillow and its lovely. Everyone’s so so nice’ Fleur said.

However, Anne proved not everything was good about the bed as she struggled to get out of it. 

Laughing to herself, she tried to get herself off the structure.

She explained: ‘I tried to get myself to the dunny. It took me about five minutes of just hauling myself out because it seemed to tilt the other way.’ 

Anne continued to snigger to herself as she tried to get up at which point Emily Atack offered to help.

Emily said: ‘It’s funny because when she’s struggling with something you immediately want to help her but really she doesn’t need it all the time. Love her. Absolutely love her.

Other members of the yellow team were also finding life in Croc Creek rather odd. James McVey said: ‘First night was very strange. We still feel we’re very welcome guests in a house that is not ours.’

And later Rita Simons, Fleur East and James were talking and Rita said ‘the fire’s gone out but I felt like I don’t want to impose on the way they do it. I feel like such a guest. It’s like sleeping over at someone’s house.’   

Anne candidly discussed the impact of being autistic on her love life in Wednesday’s episode.

The Chase star, 60,  opened up about romance and the challenges faced her in a chat with John with the pair bonding over Doctor Who.

John asked Anne if she had a partner and she replied ‘No I don’t. 

‘When I was working out that I was autistic it clarified a lot of things for me and one of those things was ‘that’s why I never seem to be able to make it work, that’s why I always feel claustrophobic in a relationship.   

‘That’s why I kind of think that’s probably not intended for me.’

The hunk, who played Captain Jack Harkness in the show and spin-off Torchwood,  said that he’d heard that she was a Doctor Who fan. 

Anne then revealed that David Tennant was her favourite doctor with John agreeing and high-fiving her.

‘If you need a hand just holler and The Captain will come and help you’ he said, after admitting he was a ‘big soppy cow’ in the Bush Telegraph. 

Anne was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome in 2003 when she was 45 years old.

Asperger’s, is a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. 

She said it makers her unorganised and due to the clutter at her home she avoids having any visitors.     

Elsewhere in the episode, Anne was quizzed by her fellow campmates, with the star making a hilarious revelation about her Wikipedia page. 

Anne revealed that she had stopped looking at her page because it says that she is married to someone called Jake Hester.

The campmates laughed as Fleur suggested that ‘Jake Hester’ might come and meet Anne on the bridge.

The celebs also asked    Anne what the hardest question that she’d ever been asked was. 

She replied anything about football and continued ‘Birmingham City is the only club never to have scored or won a game (she said she’d have to check) during an entire reign of a pope – Pope John Paul 1.’ His reign lasted 30 days.

She said: ‘The thing about quizzing is it’s like this little incestuous community and we tend to know each other and we talk to each other on Facebook and there’s a quiz discussion group on Facebook.’ 

The star added: ‘It’s been fun entertaining the campmates with my quiz knowledge today. I hope it’s been entertaining and interesting for them. I assume they wouldn’t be asking the questions if they weren’t interested.’  

Emily left her fellow campmates in stitches as she treated them to an array of impressions, including that of former IAC contestant Gemma Collins. 

Sair started by doing her impression of Love Island’s Dani Dyer, saying ‘at the end of the day, he thinks hes gonna make me a cheese and ham croissant every morning, he’s gotta think again’.    

Emily soon followed it up with her version and all the girls laughed.

Channeling her inner GC, Emily had the girls in hysterics as she drawled in an Essex accent: ‘At the end of the day I’m the GC, you’re boring babe.

‘You know what I don’t need the money babe, I don’t need it. I’m a celebrity get me out of here!’   

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Rita said ‘Emily is a very talented young lady, I just love impressions and accents.’

Rita then did her Denise Van Outen impression and told the girls about the time she did it to Denise in person. 

Talking in the Bush Telegraph, Emily said ‘Today was just glorious, this is what it’s about.’ 

Next up came the Dingo Dollar Challenge -Class of 18, which saw Emily and Nick meet up with Kiosk Kev at the Outback Shack.   

They were greeted by a Jungle laminate which had the instructions for the DDC challenge.

Emily read out the laminate ’10 celebrities are the Jungle cast and 10 secrets that are hidden in their past. Match the secrets to the photo on the wall and to the shack you’ll go with the Dingo Dollar haul.’

Emily and Nick had to open school lockers that contained celebrity secrets, they then had to match those secrets to the relevant celebrity in camp by placing the secrets underneath a school photo of them.

Some of the secrets included being an extra in a Robin Hood movie, applying for BGT, biting people as a child (later revealed to be Emily) and wanting to be a WWE wrestler.

Nick revealed as a 6th former he had climbed into the school loft and dyed the entire water system blue.   

Emily and Nick had fun matching all the secrets correctly which meant another visit to Kiosk Kev at the Outback Shack.  

The question of the day was what percentage of adults felt that their school days were the best days of their lives – (a) 50% or (b) 40%.

Up for grabs was jam roly poly or sherbet dip and they plumped for jam roly poly.

The camp said 40% and got it wrong as the answer was 50%, losing out on the decadent dessert.

Harry wistfully reflected on the dessert,  saying: ‘Probably got kangaroo wings for dinner, what I wouldn’t give for jam roly poly.’  

The celebrities were however given an unappetising alpaca neck for dinner, which Masterchef Nick did his best to turn into a delicious delight.   

After dinner there was drama in camp as a python was spotted with a rat in its mouth and was later removed by security. 

Then come the dramatic reveal where Holly and Dec revealed there was no public vote and that all celebrities have to make their way to the Trial area for further instruction.

As Holly said ‘They have no idea who is waiting for them at the trial clearing’ teasing Noel Edmond’s spectacular entrance into the camp. 

A teaser revealed Noel will play the merciless emperor in a Roman Gladiators task, with the television legend dressed in ceremonial robes as he bellowed ‘are you not entertained?!

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Thursday November 22, ITV1 at 9:00pm.
