I’m A Celeb’s Holly Willoughby declares Christmas trial ‘most ridiculous ever’

Holly Willoughby and Dec Donnelly have no idea what they are watching when they se Fleur East and James McVey take part in "the most ridiculous" trial they’ve ever seen.

The hosts of the jungle show stand by as they see Fleur, dressed as Santa, guiding a blindfolded James through the trees as he is dressed up as Rudolph.

The task, called Ding Dong Merrily Up High, sees the pair up in the trees as they try to get presents in Santa’s sleigh, with Fleur telling James where to throw them as he can not see anything.

But Dec and Holly have no idea what is going on, with Holly declaring: "This is ridiculous. This is the most ridiculous thing ever."

Meanwhile, Fleur is trying to guide James, telling him to step forward, turn to face her and hold on to the presents as tightly as he could.

But, of course, James’s journey is made even more difficult when Dec tells him: "There might be some green ants nest in there…"

James starts jumping up and crying out in shock, as Holly becomes very concerned for James, saying: "Oh those ants are going to get inside that suit."

Her concern quickly melts away when she points out to Dec: "I know we should be focusing on something else here, but Ruldoph usually has a red nose?"

Dec giggles as the pair continue to joke at how James will need to "totally trust" Fleur in their trial, with Dec exclaiming how afraid he would be to take a step forward when suspended up so high.

They wait as James continues to walk around, and prepares to throw the present over to Fleur, to ensure they get their full meal allowance for that day.
