Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor vowed to embrace the dirt when he attempted his first bushtucker trial.
Taylor had to face a "savage sewer" of pipes containing pythons, toads, mud crabs, spiders and rats.
The nervous reality TV star was already "shaken up" before the trial after he found a spider on him.
But Taylor told relieved former Coronation Street actress Helen Flanagan, who has faced seven trials, that he was "quite looking forward" to having a go.
"I can tell it's going to be absolutely downright dirty filthy," he said before attempting the trial.
"You've got to embrace the disgusting. That's going to be the way to go.
"I'm not a clean freak. I do like to be clean. What I said to myself is the filth washes off. It's not going to last forever."
Viewers will find out how Taylor performed on tonight's ITV1 show.
But host Dec Donnelly told This Morning: "He did all right. He did quite well but he was having a bad morning in camp and he was honestly really very nervous.
"It was a hideous trial he had to do - it was smelly and dirty and a lot of critters and rats and stuff involved so he did pretty well considering. They (the celebrities) will be happy, they'll have a bit of food."
Co-host Ant McPartlin said: "There were a few girlie screams."
