I'm A Celebrity: Cockroaches and maggot in 'bug burial' bush tucker trial thwarts controversial MP Nadine Dorries
Monday 12 November 2012
Controversial Tory MP Nadine Dorries and actress Helen Flanagan failed to win food for their team after freaking out during a bug challenge in tonight's I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!
The pair went head-to-head after the public voted for them to face the task of lying for ten minutes in two underground crates as lids were bolted - and as bugs including maggots, crickets and cockroaches were dumped on them.
After ten minutes, an allen key would drop into the crate and the first to escape by undoing all three bolts would win dinner for their camp.
Wearing goggles, shirts and shorts, the pair nervously stepped into their respective crates.
After seconds, Flanagan shouted "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!" and she was helped out of the crate.
Two minutes later 3,000 cockroaches joined the maggots in Dorries' crate, prompting her to complain that something was nipping her knee.
More maggots were dropped in and as she covered her face with her hand, she said "You're going to bury me if you put any more in."
Next, 5,000 crickets joined Nadine and again she said that something was biting her as the insects crawled over her body.
She lasted four minutes before being released.
Afterwards Dorries, 55, said: "That was possibly the most horrific thing I've ever done in my life.
"It stopped for me when something started biting my leg.
"It was biting and hurting and in my mind and imagination it was a rat gnawing into my flesh but when I came away there were just two bite marks on my skin but in there it was a rat having me for dinner.
"The camp will be very disappointed when I tell them there is no food but they'll also be really supportive as well because we're that kind of team."
Flanagan sobbed after the trial and said: "I'm really struggling.
"I've even been thinking of going because I just don't know if I can hack it."
