WITH I’m a Celebrity 2018 underway, we countdown the most gut-wrenching trials in the show’s history.
Plus, we reveal the celeb most likely to face more than the rest of the camp mates…
What are the I’m A Celebrity bushtucker trials?
A bushtucker trial is a task which the celebs must complete in order to win meals for camp.
The more stars they collect during a task, the more meals they win.
If they fail to win any stars then they have to survive off basic staples – like beans and rice.
Each trial usually involves getting close to Aussie critters like cockroaches, maggots and snakes.
What are the most famous Bushtucker trials?
George Shelley Bushtucker trial – In a task called Cloudy with a Chance of Pigs balls George Shelley had to rip open pigs balls to find three stars. Those real-size pig balls also hit him in the head/ a few times.
