Jungle Joe puts Kilroy in his place

'Take it like a man.'

Those were Joe Swash's words to Robert Kilroy-Silk after he won the Chamber of Horror bush tucker trial shown on Tuesday night's instalment of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Viewers saw the ex-Eastender star, who will be appearing in panto in Medway next month, and the former chat show host enter separate chambers where they were chained in leg irons, a waist belt and hand cuffs. As water filled the tanks, they each had to find six keys attached to stars at the bottom of the chamber to unlock the padlocks.

To win a luxury meal for their camp they had to be the first celebrity to unlock all six padlocks and pull the lever at the top of the chamber.

The celebrities both managed to undo the first three padlocks but as Joe struggled with the fourth Robert climbed to the top and pulled the lever convinced he had won. The only thing was he was still attached to one of the handcuffs.

Presenters Ant and Dec told him he would have to go back and retrieve the final key. After finding what he believed was the correct key Robert told the hosts he must have a dodgy lock as it wouldn't open. In the meantime Joe had already won the trial after successfully freeing himself.

With Robert insisting he had the right key in his hand an adjudicator was brought in to try all of the keys. He was left red-faced though when one of the discarded keys at the bottom of the tank opened the lock. The key in his hand had in fact opened one of the other padlocks.

Joe's win meant he and his fellow campers enjoyed a traditional British dinner, and because he has won two out of three trials since entering the jungle the team also received a bottle of champagne to wash down their meal.

Producers plans to merge the two camps were brought forward due to severe weather forecast and fears of flooding.

And Joe looked set to take on a fourth trial when Ant and Dec revealed that is could be either Joe or Robert that viewers had voted for the next bush tucker trial.

A look of relief passed across Joe's face though when it was revealed that Robert would take part in the next trial in an attempt to win a decent meal for the whole group.

The John Travolting challenge will see Robert striking a John Travolta pose while critters swarm all over him.

Two new celebrities, who are yet to be named, are set to enter the camp during Thursday night's show.

Joe is appearing in Cinderella at the Central Theatre in Chatham from Friday, December 12.
