Popular z-list career revival show, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, is swapping its famous Bush Tucker Trial for the more unpalatable lunch-time menu option from Wetherspoons.
Fans of the show have been complaining over recent years that contestants hungry for TV exposure have been too ready to swallow crocodile bollocks and bull’s penis in the ‘Bush Tucker Trials’ section of the show.
In this particular challenge, an impish Ant & Dec offer up horrendous food to the starving contestants, making them eat or drink the vile concoctions in exchange for ‘stars’ that convert into meals for their campmates.
However, recent seasons have seen the celebrity nobodies happily guzzle down milkshakes made from blended cockroaches, or chomp away on live spiders, without a care in the world.
This year the program makers promise it will be an entirely different challenge.
Rather than drinking pureed mealworms and eating antelope’s scrotum, contestants will have to contend with the lunchtime menu from the Chester branch of Wetherspoons. Some of the horrendous meals the former Hollyoaks actresses, failed popstars and 80s TV icons will have to eat in order to win stars will include a microwaved tandoori, a warmed-up burger and a pie of questionable filling.
Micro-presenter, Ant McPartlin, chuckled:
It’s fiendish. The poor celebrities will have to eat some truly inedible stuff if they’re to win meals for camp this year.
His colleague, nano-presenter Declan Donnelley, added:
That’s right! I’d like to see someone like Peter Andre swallow a Wetherspoons’ ham and cheese toastie without gagging and being sick. The celebrities will be going hungry this year for sure!
