Kieron Dyer had his Scrabble skills tested, jungle style, as he took part in this evening’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here inter-camp challenge.

Chosen by Lady C as being one of the main camp’s ‘best men’ and ‘gladiators’ alongside Chris Eubank and Union J’s George Shelley, the former Ipswich midfielder went for a dip in filthy water to collect letters to use against the banished team of Jorgie Porter, Spencer Matthews and Brian Friedman, in a twisted version of the classic word game.

While highbrow words such as ‘idiot’, ‘shop’ and ‘four’ may not be enough to beat regular players of the game, they were sufficient for Dyer and his team to take the win, and the right to play the hilarious ‘sorry, we lost’ prank on their return to camp.

The ruse didn’t last long and they were soon rewarded with 20 Dingo Dimes (unsure of the exact exchange rate to Sterling, sorry), with the camp enjoying a dinner of eel as a reward for Ferne’s earlier triumph in a game of ‘Dicing with Death’.

The Only Way is Essex star squealed, howled and wailed her way through a fun board game which resulted in her and the much more composed pair of Spencer and Vicky Pattison being covered in cockroaches, crabs, rats and snakes. Despite her protestations, Ferne managed to complete the challenge first to take the victory.

Her reward was to be able to take one of her partners to the main camp, Vicky, leaving Spencer alone at Snake Rock. The reality duo then sent Brian and Jorgie the other way, having had to make a snap decision just five minutes after moving into camp.

Throughout this evening’s episode, viewers had been voting for the campmate they wanted to see move to the exile camp and face a Bushtucker Trial, with Lady C the public’s choice.
