A first look at the new episode of I'm A Celebrity sees the latecomers put to the test in the most stomach-churning trial to date.

Ruthie Henshall and Rusell Watson are forced to take part in tonight's trial, Stage Fright, which sees Ruthie in stockades and doused in rotten tomatoes as she's forced to answer jokes.

Russell, meanwhile, has to dunk his head into a barrel of slime to find clues to the jokes with his teeth.

The rest of camp watch on, groaning in horror as Ruthie is doused with rotten veg.

"Jesters, you're in position," Dec tells the nervous pair.

"What did medieval postmen wear?" Ruthie read out.

"Chainmail?" Russell theorised, before the tomatoes were splattered onto Ruthie.

AJ Pritchard was especially horrified, putting his hand over his mouth.

Russell was then forced to search – with his mouth – for the punchline hidden in the slime.

"Come on, Russell!" an enthusiastic Ruthie encouraged as he dunked his head under the grim liquid.

This marks the first trial not involving Jordan North.

The Radio 1 DJ predicted fans would vote for him to take on most of them after the first episode saw him vomit on a cliff-top from a fear of heights.

He was then voted to take on Viper Vault with Shane Richie, being locked underground with snakes – his two greatest fears.

But they managed to get a very respectable nine stars between them.
