What am I doing? asks Jimmy Bullard as he enters I’m a Celebrity jungle

Former ITFC midfielder Jimmy Bullard confirmed his reputation as a joker last night as the latest series of I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here kicked off.

Bullard was the fourth contestant to be introduced and quickly revealed his favourite prank - putting Ralgex in someone’s toothpaste, before sitting back to watch the effect.

The ex Portman Road star also told the audience that the highlight of his career was getting into the England squad aged 29 and added: “That was my proudest moment.”

Bullard is joined in the jungle by newsreader Michael Burke, TOWIE star Gemma Collins and rapper Tinchy Stryder as they battle for survival - and the public’s vote.

As they met for the first time last night, the contestants discussed their fears and Burke said of Bullard: “He was a midfielder, he has hacked down so many people, he has no fear.”

But Bullard disagreed.

Later, as Melanie Sykes was introduced to the group, Bullard admitted he had fancied her in his younger days.

The 10 celebrities were split into two groups, with one group spending an extra night in a luxury hotel, and the remaining contestants sent straight into the jungle slammer to begin their ordeal early.

Bullard remained at the hotel and was seen drinking with his fellow celebs before joining the rescue squad.

As he was about to enter the jungle he admitted he is terrified of rats, snakes and other jungle critters and said: “What am I doing?”

He was teamed with the woman that he once held a candle for in his first challenge - putting his hand in a bucket of crabs and other animals to pick out tokens - but Bullard cheated and let Sykes do most of the fishing.

  • This show was well past its sell by date years ago. Not an expert, but would think that possibly swallowing Ralgex could cause potential health problems

  • I really wish people wouldn't watch this rot, then they wouldn't make it any more. Television, the drug of the masses, dumbing things down so that people care more about who is behaving like a numpty in the jungle when the important stuff that is going on under our noses.

  • As already said, who cares. These people are only in it for the money, reputed to be £100,000. As for a contestant who is afraid of sitting in a helicopter on the ground,well............, if she exits the show at an early stage does she still get the money? I used to take great enjoyment from not watching this show but I have found a way of even more enjoyment. I record it and then delete it without watching.

  • Natalie - can't you even spell the name of a fellow journalist correctly? Michael Buerk is his name.

In the Middle Ages Ipswich was not without schools, there is firm evidence of a grammar school as early as 1477 and probably as far back as 1399. This school received its Charter from Queen Elizabeth I in 1566 and went through a number of guises before it became, what is now, Ipswich School. The school buildings are on Henley Road but have previously been in Foundation Street and Blackfriars Monastery.
