I’m A Celebrity 2013: Joey Essex ‘confrontates’ Ant and Dec during Bushtucker Trial

The TOWIE star is up to his neck in bugs and sand in a re-match with Matthew Wright, but it’s Ant and Dec who are on the receiving end of Joey's frustrations

Joey Essex and Matthew Wright are back in the Bushtucker clearing tonight for Up To Your Neck In It, and while Matthew’s out to beat Joey, the TOWIE star is busy ‘confrontating’ Ant and Dec.


Joey did say he wouldn’t be looking to ‘confrontate’ anyone in the jungle. But given that he’s already been forced into another hellish Bushtucker Trial, after eating things far worse than his former culinary enemy (goat’s cheese), we’ll let him off.

Standing in an hourglass as it fills up with sand, waiting for the bugs to be poured in, Joey yells at hosts Ant and Dec: “What you looking at?”

Dec laughs, “Nothing, just you” before Matthew (quite uncharacteristically jolly in his hourglass) quips, “How’s Joey’s hair, is it alright?”

That’ll cheer him up no end.

Joey is more likely to be simply wondering whether Ant and Dec can see what nightmarish creatures are about to be dumped on his head. But while a jungle brawl with the hosts is entirely unlikely, it’s an entertaining thought. 

Let’s see what happens tonight, eh?

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is at 9:00pm on ITV
