I’m A Celebrity day 10: Joey Essex and Kian Egan leave the jungle camp on secret immunity mission

Meanwhile, Matthew Wright tries to start a jungle revolution and Alfonso Ribeiro threatens to “erupt into a nuclear explosion”

Jungle life took a surprising turn as Joey Essex and Kian Egan were whipped out of camp for a secret immunity mission last night.


Rather than revealing who would be taking on tonight’s Bushtucker Trial, hosts Ant and Dec arrived in camp telling Joey and Kian they had to leave immediately and would be gone for a couple of days.

Their mission will involve trying to win immunity for five members of the camp.

Great news, right, everyone wants immunity and a chance to win the crown don’t they?

Well, er, maybe not. Alfonso Ribeiro’s all but about to “erupt into a nuclear explosion”. I kind of want to see it. Quick, someone tell him to do the washing up!

And TV presenter Matthew Wright tried and failed to stage a camp revolution, which probably hasn’t made him feel too cheery.

Nothing like silence to follow an ‘are you with me’ speech is there?

And all over a bit of sunshine. With the heat soaring Matthew was begging for the canopy to be opened to save the celebs from the rays, but to no avail.

Firstly, CANOPY?! That’s the first I’ve heard of a canopy. And secondly, are your diamond shoes also too tight Matthew?

When he tried to stage a revolution, urging the other campmates to take off their microphones until the bosses would be forced to let the canopy down, zero people got behind the idea. It’s probably how the first take of Braveheart went.


Anyway, poor Kian ended up being called a “scab” for actually trying to let Lucy Pargeter tell them about her trial amid the failed revolt. It totally ruined her fake ‘I did so bad’ act. Everyone thought she’d actually done bad, even though she’d squirreled away ten of the twelve stars.

The campmates also found themselves in trouble after contraband was detected in camp. Amy Willerton had chewing gum, the naughty lass, and David Emanuel revealed he had a torch. Vincent Simone kindly confirmed he wasn’t “snuggling” – yes, snuggling – something in his pants because there “wasn’t enough room”.

Good to know Vince, good to know.
