CHRIS Moyles is to face another Bushtucker Trial on ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’
The 48-year-old radio star is currently appearing on the ITV1 jungle survival show and had taken part in the Angel of Agony alongside comedian Babatunde Aleshe and pop icon Boy George but has now been voted by the public to face Boiling Point alone on Wednesday.
Following the announcement made by Ant and Dec, Chris sighed: “I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine!”
Boy George quipped: “I have to say, I’m relieved, rice and beans tonight everyone though!”
Earlier in the show, the trio had faced a trial based on the famous Angel of the North statue in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, and were pelted with green ants, cockroaches, and scorpions as they tried to pass stars to each other but in the end only managed to secure three out of a possible 11 meals for camp, setting a record-low for the series so far.
Following the disappointing result, hosts Ant and Dec remarked that the trial was”awful” and “frustrating to watch” and Babatunde joked that he had “butterfingers” throughout the ordeal.
Later that evening, the trio’s efforts were rewarded with a small portion of crocodile feet and former rugby player Mike Tindall complained that there “was not a lot of meat” on them, while Babtune labelled them as “alien feet” but footballer Jill Scott proclaimed that “food is food and food is mood” as she encouraged her fellow campmates to tuck in.
Meanwhile, former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, 44, – who took part in a chain of six trials for camp before the public voted for Chris – was quizzed by ‘Coronation Street’ actress Sue Cleaver on “what went wrong” with former Prime Minister Liz Truss who took over from Boris Johnson but quit after a matter of weeks in office earlier this year before she was replaced by Rishi Sunak.
He said: “Her political career is over. It is totally finished. No ambiguity. I think [going for the less experienced party member ] was all about how Boris was kicked out. It was all about people seeing Rishi as wielding the knife against Boris.”
When ‘Loose Women’ anchor Charlene White suggested that the Conservative party tried to “punish the country” by electing Liz into the role, he suggested her analysis was “unfair.”
He said: “That implies a malign motive which isn’t fair but they definitely put the disloyalty to Boris as a negative. Even the old Boris die-hards who hadn’t wanted him to resign had moved on. I was very supportive of him but when it was time to go, it was time for him to go.”
Matt – who was given the regal position of camp leader earlier this week – later joked that he felt as if he was on BBC game show ‘Mastermind’ after being asked all the questions.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, he said: “There I was sat in the comfy red chair and I felt like I was on ‘Mastermind’ being asked all these questions!”
