I'm A Celebrity's Carol Vorderman fears bum will ruin Bushtucker Trial

Never mind the creepy crawlies, I’m A Celebrity’s Carol Vorderman is more concerned her bottom is the biggest obstacle in a Bushtucker trial.

The former Countdown star, 62, is tasked with the latest challenge on Tuesday’s upcoming episode and picks Fatima Whitbread, 62, to assist her.

The retired javelin thrower isn’t initially thrilled to be taking part remarking in the Bush Telegraph that ‘my name came out of Carol’s mouth within seconds.’

But Fatima soon warms up after arriving at the Trial clearing commenting that their pairing matches ‘the brains and the brawn.’

‘It’s going to be a good combination,’ she adds.

Ant and Dec reveals the task is called Tanks of Tormet and will see Carol swim through four sections of tanks, filled with creatures including crocodiles and snakes, and collect stars on the way.

Fatima, meanwhile, cranks open the different sections of the tanks as Carol aims to collect 10 stars in 10 minutes.

Ahead of plunging into the tanks, Carol admits there could be a problem because of her ‘buoyant’ rear end.

She jokes: My bottom always floats to the top… it’s the most buoyant thing in Britain. So getting down underwater is my biggest problem.’

Fingers crossed Carol makes it underwater.

Carol and Fatima are among the campmates returning to I’m A Celebrity, which has been filmed at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Tuesday’s episode will also see the arrival of Joe Swash, 41, and Dean Gaffney, 45, in the jungle where they will immediately face a Bushtucker Trial.

Shaun Ryder and Gillian McKeith were the first stars to be eliminated, with the likes of Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo, Andy Whyment and Jordan Banjo still in the running to be crowned champion.

I’m A Celebrity South Africa continues tonight at 9pm on ITV and ITVX.
