Crunch time for Jungle Joe

Will Joe Swash make it to the final of I'm a Celebrity?

It's make or break for the ex-EastEnder star.

Tonight's edition of I'm a Celebrity will decide which of the remaining camp mates are through to the final.

Since entering the Australian Rainforest almost three weeks ago the cheeky Cockney has proved to be a big hit.

He was tipped to be the winner from the start but it seems David Van Day is emerging as the slightly older pretender.

Viewers have seen the 26-year-old take part in three chest challenges (all of which he won), two camp challenges and win immunity from the first eviction after beating Martina in a challenge.

He has also taken part in four Bush Tucker Trials, three of which he won.

Last night's show saw Simon and Joe working together for a Celebrity Chest challenge. Wearing bright yellow spandex and harnesses the two men had to use each other for balance by leaning forward and holding on to one another as they walked across a metal wire high above the rainforest to reach the chest.

After successfully completing the trial Joe revealed that at one point he was ready to quit but he couldn't do it.

He said:"I just thought 'I can't do this. This is ridiculous, look at the size of me, I can't hold him (Simon) anymore.'

"Then I thought I might have to jump off then I could see the look of terror in Simon's eyes and I thought 'no I'm going to have to kind of see this one through.'"

When Joe flies back to the UK he will be making his way to the Central Theatre in Chatham to start rehearsals for his role as Buttons.

Cinderella - the Panto opens on Friday, December 12 leaving Joe with little time to learn his lines before curtains up.

• Joe will play Buttons in Cinderella at the Central Theatre, Chatham, from Friday, December 12 to Saturday, January 4.
