I’m A Celebrity’s first Bushtucker Trial is so scary that Holly Willoughby hid

The first Bushtucker Trial on this year’s I’m A Celebrity is so scary that Holly Willoughby was forced to hide.

While the teaser for Monday night’s trial played on-screen, terrified Holly ran out of the studio and left new co-host Dec Donnelly alone.

"I can’t watch this," screamed Holly as she gave a wave to cameras and went out of shot before the trailer started playing.

Once the tense teaser stopped, Dec beckoned his frightened co-host, who has spoken about her fear of "everything", back into the studio.

Dec confirmed that there were no spiders or rats in this one, but stayed eerily silent when Holly asked about snakes.

Luckily for Holly she won’t be taking out in the horrifying Viper Pit, but will she actually make it to the Bushtucker Trial clearing?

The losing yellow team, who lost the canoe race across the lake, were at the mercy of the public as they decided who took part.

The Chase quiz master Anne Hegerty was the only one at Snake Rock not up for the trial as she was ruled out on medical grounds.

Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack was the unfortunate star chosen to take part in the first trial of the series.

Emily screamed when Dec and Holly revealed that she would have to enter the jaws of the viper.

Explaining what she would face, Holly said: "Behind the snake’s gaping jaw awaits a wriggling, riving chamber of horros."

Dec continued: "Who can hold their nerve and grab those stars in the terrifying depths of the Viper Pit?"

I’m A Celeb viewers took to Twitter after discovering what the first trial will be.

One viewer said: "I had a feeling Emily would be doing the snake trial when she screamed about a leech"

"First trial is a snake one… That’s me taking my eyes off the TV for a bit," added another.

However, one pointed out that Holly’s sharp exit wasn’t so funny when it became clear she knew what the trial was beforehand.

They tweeted: "The joke of Holly not knowing snakes are involved in the first trial doesn’t play quite so well when she was the one who did the voiceover on its introductory VT.."
