Holly Willoughby assures panicked Anne Hegerty in gruesome I’m A Celebrity Trial

As the tough-talking Governess on The Chase, Anne Hegerty is used to making contestants quake with fear.

But the tables have been turned on I’m A Celebrity as she takes on the latest gruesome Bushtucker Trial.

Anne was picked to face her fears in the Monstrous Monoliths task.

A sneak preview of tonight’s episode sees Anne locked inside a chamber in a race against time to free the padlocked yellow stars.

Just seconds in 60-year-old Anne squeals in fright as she’s coated in green slime.

"It’s OK Anne," assures Holly Willoughby. "There’s nothing in there that’s going to hurt you."

The clip shows Anne attempt to regain her composure but panic again when she fails to unlock the stars.

The quiz show star has had a rough time of it in the jungle so far.

She was the first campmate to breakdown in tears after an emotional first day.

After losing the lake race challenge, Anne’s yellow team were forced to head off to their new home in Snake Rock, rather than the main camp of Croc Creek.

They attempted to remain positive in their far from luxurious camp, but it got a bit too much for Anne, who was feeling very low after a tough day in the jungle.

Breaking down in tears, Anne said: "I’m really close to saying I can’t do this."

ITV bosses have told Anne they will monitor her more closely than other campmates due to her autism.

Speaking before the show, she said: “The bosses seem more anxious than I do. They keep saying you must say if there’s a problem and I keep saying, ‘Well, I’ll be fine.’ And they keep saying, ‘No, you have to promise’.
