I’m A Celeb fans praise Frankie Bridge who smashes trial despite severe phobia

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans have heaped praise on star Frankie Bridge after she smashed a trial despite having a severe phobia.

The Saturdays singer, 32, and fellow campmate Naughty Boy were chosen to take part in Scary-oke in Thursday night's episode, which saw them drink an array of disgusting concoctions.

Frankie is known to suffer from emetophobia, described by Anxiety UK as: "A fear of vomiting or seeing others being sick."

She was physically shaking throughout the trial, with hosts Ant and Dec offering her a towel for warmth at one point, but managed to overcome her phobia and, with Naughty Boy's help, win 10 out of 10 stars for the camp.

Fans soon took to Twitter to commend Frankie's bravery.

Some explained how they could relate to Frankie's fear, making her efforts even more impressive.

One person wrote: "As someone who has a phobia of being sick there's no way I could have even attempted 1 of those drinks! @FrankieBridge did amazing! #emetophobia is the worst!"

"My emetophobia and anxiety was awful just watching Frankie do that oh my god," said another.

A third added: "Credit to Frankie doing that with emetophobia. I suffer from it too and could no way have done any of that."

Others questioned why the former S Club 7 star wasn't excused from the trial by ITV bosses.

One person asked: "Why wasn’t Frankie ruled out of eating and drinking trials due to medical grounds if she has emetophobia?"

Another fan fumed: "If Frankie actually had emetophobia she should’ve been ruled out of the eating/drinking trials on medical grounds. strong fear ≠ phobia."

The trial saw one of the two stars make their way through a vile cocktail whilst the other sang.

In the second round, Frankie somehow managed to face blended deer's testicles.

Worst still, the star was even handed blended goat brain, leading Dec to admit: "I'm not often shocked anymore on this show Frankie Bridge, but that shocked me."
