Holly Willoughby breaks crucial I’m A Celebrity rule during tonight’s trial

Holly Willoughby broke a golden rule as she co-hosted an I’m A Celebrity Bushtucker trial with Dec Donnelly.

The presenter has been doing a very good job so far as she stands alongside Dec, replacing Ant McPartlin on the hit ITV show.

But she shocked fans when she did the unthinkable after Nick Knowles and Noel Edmonds had completed their trial, Catch A Falling star.

During the trial, the pair had been suspended above a lake in clear boxes, and one was told to retrieve stars from nasty hell-holes, filled with creepy crawlies.

They then had to pass those on to their partner, who occupied the box below, who had to catch the stars amidst mealworms, ants and other bugs.

Noel and Nick did their absolute best to retrieve the stars, and though Noel successfully was able to do this, sadly Nick was not so good at catching, and missed six stars out of 11, meaning they only won five meals for camp, despite a great deal of effort.

But it came at the end of the trial when Holly did something completely shocking – she KISSED both campmates on the cheek for their efforts.

She did this as they left the trial, after which she was given a proper telling off by her co-host for "fraternising" with the campmates.

Dec asked: “Are you canoodling with the campmates? I don’t think that’s allowed.

“I think I did,” she giggled, as she said she felt just shaking her hand would be "a bit official" compared a cute kiss.

But Dec was not persuaded, replying: "Keep your distance Holly Willoughby, keep your distance.”

Holly was thoroughly contrite for her naughty kisses, admitting she had "broken a golden rule," but Dec laughed it off, though confirmed this was not the way the hosts behave during trials.

Perhaps Noel and Nick looked particularly charming while covered in bugs?
