Willoughby, who is replacing long-running co-host Ant McPartlin for this series, told Schofield earlier this month on This Morning that she was more than a little nervous about some of the more “horrible” tasks — in particular the eating challenges.
“When you told me, I just couldn’t believe my ears,” Scholfield joked.
“One is the eating challenge – even if you were eating chocolate and you opened your mouth to show me what was in there, I wouldn’t like that.
“So the fact you’ve eaten some sort of body part that’s not meant for eating… it’s going to be horrible!” she said.
‘Oh, there's gonna be spiders and stuff there’.
