    The pair were evicted from the camp by hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly after they placed last in the Bushtucker trial.

    As the group entered the clearing, the Geordie duo told them what they would be facing in the gruelling trial called the Savage Safari.

    Each pairs were handcuffed together and tasked with removing spanners and wrenches from three boxes in order to free themselves.

    But as usual, these boxes were filled with creepy crawlies including snakes, offal and rats.

    Toff and Phil got off to a strong start, quickly passing the snake challenge as they raced onto the second set of boxes.

    However, Andy and Jordan were hot on their tails as they managed to take the lead at the halfway point, with Toff and Phil eventually finishing in second place.

    Unfortunately, Gillian and Shaun struggled to get past the first box, with the Happy Monday star easily securing his wrench while he waited for Gillian to put her hand in the box full of snakes.

    As a result, at the end of the trial, the pair were told they were heading home after they lost the competition.

    Following her sudden exit, Gillian told viewers: "I’m delighted I did it. And I also see a full circle story.

    "This couple [Shaun and Gillian] that were nemesis, coming full circle and going off in the sunset together. It’s a great life lesson. Things can change."

    She continued: "You can overcome challenges, not necessarily about the jungle or insects or anything. But other types of challenges or confrontations that you think are going to be hanging there forever, actually can be turned around.

    "It wasn’t even a major effort to do that, it was fairly seamless, which is a huge result."
