Matt Hancock is covered in slime and has feathers and custard as he takes on his fourth challenge on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
After a public vote, the 44-year-old former health secretary and 23-year-old campmate Owen Warner, known as Romeo Nightingale of Hollyoaks, were selected for trial on Friday.
They soon find themselves facing a jungle-themed version of the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? titled Who Wants To Look Silly On The Waves?
Knowing she would participate, Hancock laughed and said: “That was the most predictable outcome. It’s called looking silly on the waves, it’ll be me then.”
All the campmates watched as co-hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly explained that they needed to secure 11 stars to feed the entire camp.
The presenting duo will ask them six multiple-choice questions with 60 seconds to answer each question and the help of various lifelines.
Hancock and Warner were drenched in brown sauce before using Ask The Hosts to get McPartlin to answer exactly who played Sirius Black in the Harry Potter movie – Gary Oldman.
They couldn’t guess what Australian city the Hemsworth brothers were born in, while another question was paused after watching campmates tried to give the correct answer by coughing.
Hancock and Warner then called Sue Cleaver for help using her as their Friend’s One Phone for a question regarding the year Coronation Road began.
The soap star was drenched while she took the call, with Warner shouting: “Leave Sue alone!”

The pair were further smeared with feathers, custard and other messes before the challenge ended and they were told they had only won five of the 11 stars.
A depressed Warner said: “I’m not a happy man, I’m covered with all sorts and we only have five stars. He (Matt) was doing well until you put me on his team. “
The episode also sees young George recalling coming home to his family as a young man.
Speaking to host Charlene White, he recalled his early fashion choices, saying: “My mom would say (to my dad): ‘Look what he’s wearing.’
“And my dad used to take his piece of paper (and drop it down to see) and say, ‘If he wants to be beaten, let him out.’ And that’s it you know? “
When asked by White whether his gender surprised those close to him, the male singer replied, “No. My dad used to do this in the car, he would turn the music down when he was about to make an announcement.
“My brothers all went to work, he was like, radio down, he said: ‘I need to tell you about your brother.’ They said: ‘We know, put the music on.’ “
I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! continues on ITV at 9pm.
