2016’s been a tough year for mankind but it’s all been worth it to see I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’s Larry Lamb drag a stranded Scarlett Moffatt (her off Gogglebox) from a lake to the tune of the Jurassic Park theme.

At least that’s what Twitter decreed after Sunday night’s first episode.

Larry and Scarlett were charged with canoeing across a lake, picking up a flag from a pontoon and planting it on the other side. But of course there was a snag – they needed to pull the plug from their vessels to release the flag, and found themselves up to their necks in water in seconds.

At least Larry did, as he made it to the pontoon first. And when Scarlett – who’d spent most of the journey screaming for his help – reached her destination, she became quite concerned.

“I was worried Larry, I could see your canoe but there’s no you” the Gogglebox star shouted when she realised her new BFF was in fact alive and well.

Needless to say, Twitter was loving it…

Although some were sure they’d heard Scarlett somewhere before…

The best was yet to come, though, as Scarlett attempted to nab her flag and began to sink.

You see the Gogglebox lass thought Australia was the place where she might learn to swim, but her plan didn’t exactly work out.

It was down to Larry Lamb to save her, and win the hearts of the nation in the process.

#TeamScarry for the win, yeah?

Yeah. We can get behind that.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here continues on ITV on Monday November 14th
