Kieron Dyer wins nine stars in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Bushtucker Trial
The former Ipswich Town and England footballer took part in a gory challenge.
In Scarier 52, Dyer had to work his way through rooms with frogs, spiders, cockroaches and an ostrich, among others.
“That ostrich terrified me the most,” the 36-year-old said after it ended. “I could hear you laughing!” he told presenters Ant and Dec on the ITV show.
Dyer, who made 94 appearances for Ipswich and represented his country on 33 occasions, has pledged to donate his entire appearance fee from I’m A Celeb to Ipswich-based charity Jude Brady Foundation, which helps children across Suffolk for a range of different illnesses and also aims to highlight the issues surrounding neonatal deaths.
Meanwhile, Lady Colin Campbell, dubbed Lady C, has continued to clash with Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne, with Emu poo sparking a row between the pair during Monday night’s episode.
“That’s diarrhoea poo, he needs to clean it up,” she said after spotting some near her bed.
“Duncan dodges his duties at every point. He knows there is a poo and has clearly ignored it and is lying down and unless that poo is cleaned up, I want to leave this camp,” the 66-year-old stated.
The Scottish entrepreneur insisted he was not told about the poo.
“She’s a liar,” he countered. “Maybe an invisible person asked me to clean up invisible poo.”
Union J’s George Shelley was announced as the next camp leader, as voted for by the public.
He asked Lady C to be his deputy, but not everyone approved.
“I was really shocked when George said she should be the deputy. My inside was like, ‘oh for f***s sake!’. It’ll be a nightmare,” said Most Haunted’s Yvette Fielding.
Bannatyne added: “We’re having to live in this nightmare of Lady C manoeuvring over a period of time to get her own way. She is the most dishonest woman I have ever met.”
Boxer Chris Eubank and Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison were sent on the Key Strain challenge.
The duo returned to camp empty-handed because their team mates answered the resulting question incorrectly.
The celebrities discussed when they first realised they were famous.
Singer Shelley said: “The day after Judges’ Houses, there was a sea of fans and paps and all they cared about was Union J because we were the newly formed band from the X Factor.
“It was literally overnight and it was the weirdest shock to the system.”
Dyer recalled an event following his move from Ipswich Town in 1999.
“When I was signed to Newcastle, we all went to New York at the end of the season and we were in a 5th Avenue store with Jennifer Love Hewitt with her boyfriend.
“We were whispering about her being there when she suddenly tapped me on the shoulder and asked if her boyfriend could have a photo!”
Lady C said: “When I was young, I had a tremendous amount of publicity - none of which I wanted - and a very famous woman, actually Jackie Onassis, gave me a tip on how to walk so that people wouldn’t recognise you.”
Bannatyne took refuge in the Bush Telegraph and admitted he was having a tough time.
“I can’t take much more of this, it’s so boring. Self-obsessed, stupid woman ranting on and on and on and on. I can’t take much more. We are having to live in this nightmare of Lady C just talking and talking and talking.”
I’m A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! is broadcast at 8.30pm on ITV
