I'm a Celebrity 2013: TOWIE's Joey Essex defeats Matthew Wright in bushtucker trial
Monday 18 November 2013
Chat show host Matthew Wright ended up empty-handed despite forcing down a five-course meal of jungle critters and exotic animals in tonight's I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!.
The presenter went head-to-head with reality TV star Joey Essex in the Bush Tucker Trial in confident mood, telling hosts Ant and Dec that he had got over his fears from the last trial and was now "in control".
The pair ate all five dishes, including pig brains, ostrich penis and turkey testicles and ended up with a tie-break won by Joey when he downed his glass of blended cockroaches.
That meant his team dined on wallaby while their opposite numbers had to make do with rice and beans.
Wright told his teammates his trial has been "horrible" and "disgusting", saying: "I started the day hungry and I don't feel hungry any more. I feel sick - sick because of what I have eaten and sick."
The contestants got a bit of a break when the sun came out, giving them a chance to top up their tans with beauty queen Amy Willerton wasting no time in stripping down to her bra to sunbathe.
Last night, viewers saw her and Joey bond in the jungle - as she taught him to tell the time.
