SHOW STARTS:

GINO TO WIN! COME ON GUYS, GET VOTING!

So do you think that Jimmy should have made the final? I have to say I’m shocked, I found him quite bland. I can understand Kim and Gino being there as they have made such a contribution, so entertaining and Kim deserves it for the eating trial alone!

We start the show with some emotional moments from the finalists. Kim is in tears and she genuinely can’t believe she’s in the final. She feels like she has been accepted by the public "as her" and is overwhelmed by the whole experience. Jimmy describes the whole idea as "mind boggling" and Gino has just one word, "Fantastico!"

We’re back in camp and Gino announces that they will all be doing a trial today. "Not as a group, individually… We will all have to earn a one of three courses for a meal."

Kim is up first and her trial is called John T-revolting. She has to climb into a huge perspex suit and is told that it will be filled with all manner of creepy crawlies and critters.

They bail in cockroaches and crickets… “They’ve got into my knicker leg, one’s on my bum, this is not right you know, they do nip you know, they stink and this is only the beginning.”

Then it’s green ants that bite! “They are sharp, it’s like small knives going in, It’s like needles going in to you, they are biting my bum, and I feel like a pin cushion”.

Kim’s worst fear next, a bucket of spiders! “I’m terrified of spiders,” she screams.

She battles through and wins the three stars, but then Ant offers her additional treats if she can tolerate yabbies and stick insects. She nods and in they go… “I’m being bitten up my knicker leg, cockroaches are taking chunks out of me. They’ve nibbled everything I’ve got in the world; I’ve got to shake my pants out. I’m delighted, I didn’t want to fail anything, and I’ve got a cockroach on my nipple!”

Ant quips, "lucky fella!"

Well done Kim!
…and she still has enough sass to flirt with Dec as she heads off. LOL! She’s invited him back to her camper!

Gino is next up and he literally has a Bushtucker Trial – eating! Poor thing…

Throughout the trial he’s offered a traditional main course or bushtucker and although the anti-pasti tempts him, he manages to resist.

He has to crunch his way through a fermented egg first. He cracks the egg shell to reveal a completely black, rotten lump and starts gagging immediately. He suffers but swallows as Ant tells him the egg is a delicacy in some places. Gino scoffs, “How can this be a delicacy? That was disgusting, you people are crazy."

Next up was rhino beetles or profiteroles. Gino picks up a beetle and Ant adds, “you just have to pull off the legs, head and wings – the hairs make this dish apparently.” Nice! Gino tries to pretend it’s a prawn. Dec giggles as he pushes it into his mouth, "Does it taste like a prawn?" Gino squirms, “No! The flavour goes through your nose and makes you gag all the time."

A jungle bento box of cockroaches, witchetty grubs and meal worms are next on the menu. He has to eat one live cockroach, a small handful of meal worms and a witchetty grub (minus head). It’s stomach churning to watch but after the initial juice squirts from his mouth with a pop, he manages to work it down. Once it’s gone he admits that he was nearly sick but is happy he managed it. “It tasted ‘orrible though, like mucus, like something that was off.”

Three stars down and the meal is won, but will he go for the treats? He says he’ll give it a go and in one of the grossest moments on TV, he sucks up a fork full of huge mealworms like they’re spaghetti. I think I’m going to hurl!

He struggles to swallow them but eventually shows Dec that they have gone – Bleugh!

Finally it’s a crocodile’s head. He prises open the jaws to see the tongue and picks it out, "that’s a massive tongue! It smells awful." He’s in a bad way but he did it! “It tastes like rotten fish but the worst was the egg!"

I think the worms have just won it for Gino!
Just how gross was that?

Finally it’s Jimmy and his trial is simple but frightening. He’s locked in a tank via chains and five padlocks. He has five keys and has to unlock himself in time before the water gets too high or all the crawlies bit his bits!

The claxon sounds and the water starts flooding in. Jimmy finds the first key as yabbies are poured on his head – he finds the correct padlock and unlocks it. The water rises to his chest and he has to dive down into the chamber to find the next key. He screams out as a vat of water spiders hit him face first…

He opens the third padlock and is joined by biting Barramundi but he doesn’t seem to care as he knows he’s won dessert! Panic sets in as the water rises to his neck but he still manages to find the fourth key and rise from the depths to win one treat. Arrr… It’s a shame as he wa doing so well, his time runs out and he misses out on a perfect score – 4 out of 5.

Gino is overjoyed by the news and kisses his pals on the cheek, "we’ll all eat well tonight!"

And the winner is…

No it’s not time for the announcement, the final three have to create their own awards…

Their winners are as follows:

Most Attractive Campmate – Sabrina
Most Entertaining Campmate – George
The Best Breasts – Kim, Sam and Katie
Laziest Campmate – Sabrina
Biggest Exaggerator – Justin
Biggest Drama Queen – Justin
Hardest Worker – Gino
Biggest Name Dropper – George
Friendliest Celebrity – Colin
Best Team Player – Lucy
Best Dressed – Kim

Now it’s time to find out who is in third place. I hope it’s Jimmy, I think Kim and Gino deserve to be top two.

It is Jimmy and I think he knew. He hugs his camp mates and says "you’re both winners to me!"

He’s off over the bridge and the remaining finalists cheer for him…

He tells Ant and Dec that it’s been a real experience and he’s absolutely delighted. "When I arrived on my horse called paddy who was blind in one eye, I was bigger and aching all over – I thought I’m not going to make this. Then I found a job and started doing the water and helping out, the best thing about this for me was the group effort. There wasn’t anyone who didn’t do something."

So why did he come to the jungle? "I won a couple of tournaments this year and I felt good but I was overweight and I got the offer last year and couldn’t take it so… it’s also the idea of no computers and no phones but I’ve never not ben able to speak to my kids. It’s been hard emotionally and physically."

He’s asked about the trials, "when you’ve got one star you just want to get more. It’s a different type of pressure as you’re notjust doing it for you, you’re doing it for your team."

Ant points out that he was very emotional at times and Jimmy watches footage of him crying when George left and when he got his letter from home. Jimmy smiles, "when George left it was awful. It was the way it happened and he’s a fantastic guy." So true…

Ant and Dec head to camp to speak to Gino and Kim. Gino is overjoyed, "the best thing is that the public have seen something in me and Kim that we don’t even know about." The boys ask what winning would mean and Gino is hoping he’s king so he can tell his two boys they are automatically princes.

Kim says she did this for all the old ladies. "Come on girls, I’m elderly but I don’t feel elderly and I want you to get out there and do your stuff. I’m very proud as there have been some lovely looking ladies in this camp and I was the old croc." Like Gino she’s very pleased the public have seen something in her.

They’ve both done us proud haven’t they?

I can’t wait to see Gino’s face when he wins, I’m convinced he’s going to.

All of the campmates are reunited in camp.

It’s time…
The winner and new King of the Jungle 2009 is Gino!

Kim is absolutely overjoyed and takes the news well. She hugs him tight and squeals "now the kids are princes!" After her run in with Katie Price, I’d like to see her have her own talk or celebrity gossip show. We need someone that direct on our screens to tell it like it is!

Sam Fox put it best, "she’s a credit to all women out there, she’s larger than life and funny!"

Kim has a moment for her interview and she takes the opportunity to squeeze Dec like a grape, "you smell lovely!"

"I thought I’d be out so quickly, it’s so fabulous. I just can’t believe this."

She watches her jungle highlights and I have to say she’s spoke her mind, worked her butt off and had a ball. "I’m all woman! When I walked in with George and we were the first ones there, it was such a tiny camp and I thought I can’t do this."

"You do miss creature comforts, suddenly you are dropped into a hell hole. I think we’ve all done very well. There were a couple of spats, but it was pretty good in that jungle this year."

Kim watches back her five trials – she won every star available. "The eating was horrible, even when I think of it now I wretch – but I did it darling! You had to do it, I got on and did it."

They review Kim’s arguments too and she admits that she doesn’t like "phonies" or people who bully those who wont defend themselves. "Joe turned out to be lovely but he wasn’t when he came in, he was a bit naughty and as for Katie… Well she sat there saying I don’t know why I came here (she blows a raspberry). Yes you do, you came here because the public want to see you. Don’t do all this then… (she thrusts her boobs out)."

Time for Gino!

GINO! GINO! GINO!

Gino watches his jungle highlights and even if you hadn’t watched the series you could see why he’s won. He’s just been so positive, genuine and enthusiastic throughout the whole experience – not to mention delicious!

"These three weeks have gone up and down but there has never been a day where I thought, what am I doing here? And being King of the Jungle is the cherry on the cake."

"I came to the jungle as I’m the kind of guy who can’t sit still for long and I wanted to see if I could just switch off my mind from business and work and just enjoy life."

He watches his trials and admits that he thought it was all a fake when he watched the show at home, "but there really is the spider in the mouth and the big walls.."

Gino giggles as Ant and Dec show him his ‘flirting’ highlights. All he will say is that he misses his wife "a lot" and his children too… With that his kids run to the throne and he falls to his knees to hug his babies. He tells them that they are princes as he’s crowned King. He heads for the bridge and his wife is waiting with open arms… Don’t you just love a fairytale ending?

(Wipe away a tear) – I’m so happy!

Do you think the right man won?

SHOW STARTS:

The final four remain…

Gino (yum!)
Justin (wah!)
Kim (whoop!)
and Jimmy… (why?)

But who will make it to the final?
Click here to leave your views…

We join the campers as they tuck in to their full english breakfast (won by Justin’s yesterday).

As Stuart leaves, the remaining campers realise they’re the final 4 they share a group hug – they’re all amazed to still be there…  Justin is happy to make it to the semis but admits that he would love to make the final. "Every day is a day closer to that target, but even if I don’t make it, I’m a winner and I’ve never said that before." After everything he’s been through, I think Justin deserves a place along with Kim and Gino. Jimmy should leave tonight, the others have been far more entertaining – I’ve actually found Jimmy quite bland apart from a one-liner ot two.

How about you?

It’s trial time and I love Hell Hill every year. Kim is not permitted to take part for medical reasons but elects herself as cheerleader and tags along to support the boys.

They’re all kitted out in wet suits and I’m sure you know how this works by now… They have to traverse bridges, stepping stones and logs and work their way up the hill. Each camper must carry a star along with them and battle their way through gushing water and forceful winds. Oooh, they’ve added a wrecking ball this year to knock them off track! If they reach the top all that’s left to do is slide their star onto the pole and they bag a meal for camp.

Jimmy is up first… and as he only has to reach the lowest pole he dodges the wrecking ball, swims through the water and makes it look easy.

Justin is next and his pole is just a few steps higher than Jimmy… He struggles on the hill but makes it.

Finally Gino ‘the wonder’ D’Acampo scales the hill and boy do they make it harder for him. As he tries to reach the highest pole at the hill’s peak, it’s like someone’s opened the flood gates! The surge nearly sweeps him away but he digs his heels in and keeps going… By the time he’s close to his pole he’s absolutely exhausted. He reaches out but the wind pushes him back and the current is dragging at his feet, he leaps and places the star in one swoop – Job done Gino!

They’ll all eat well tonight.

Speaking of eating, as the group return from the trial they have the chance of a treat. They find a laminate which instructs them to search the camp as quickly as possible. "There are four melting ice creams up for grabs."

Kim is hilarious. She refuses to be made a monkey of and won’t search for the ice creams, but wen the boys find them she’s the first to tuck in. Gino tells the Bush Telegraph, "It may have been ridiculous (to her) but she did like the ice cream, she ate the lot!"

Celebrity Chest:

Jeeze, they’ve missed out on the chest again! Kim and Justin had to milk enough goats to float the key into reach but it was all for naught. They failed to guess how many rolls of loo paper they’ve used between them and missed out on gingerbread men. They did receive a fetching gingerbread man costume though and Justin had a great time dancing about in it.

Bubbly Anyone?

Kim has been given a secret mission. ‘The voice’ in the Bush Telegraph asks her to use the word discombobulate in separate conversations with each of the other celebrities. If they don’t click that she’s up to something then she’ll win a bottle of Bolly darling!

She makes a bee line for Justin: “You know all these interviews in the Bush Telegraph, they just discombobulate you don’t they?” Justin says "that’s a very big word" and with one down Kim moves on to Jimmy…

“All that water carrying does just discombobulate you doesn’t it?” Jimmy nods and walks away with the water.

Last but not least it’s Gino, "with your career, books, television, business and everything do you ever discombobulate?” The chef looks confused, "you know, get confused and busy." Gino smiles and says that he loves everything he gets to do.

Gold stars for Kim and a bottle of Champagne for camp.

Who Goes?

Which celebrity will leave the camp and miss out on the grand final by a huntsman’s leg?

It could be Justin or Jimmy
Gino thanks everyone at home and Kim looks absolutely gobsmacked. The can’t believe they’re in the final.

It’s Justin!
I have to ask again people, who is voting for Jimmy?

Are you?

Justin says that he didn’t think he’d get this far, "it’s been amazing. What a blast!"

When asked about the trials he smiles, "I really gave it my absolute best and I enjoyed the challenge, I think I’ve been nibbled by every crustacean known to man. It has been a fantastic all round experience."

Ant points out that he was a real peacemaker in camp. "I’ve always been like that when people argue… I just wanted to settle people down and selfishly I didn’t want to get caught up in drama, I wanted to enjoy it."

Dec says that Justin was obviously thrown by colin leaving so early. "I really thought that if one of us was to go first, it would be me. He has that smile and people love him. We’ve been together 25 years and we’ve never really been apart, so it affected me terribly. But I know now that we can… and I’ll see him."

Ant and Dec tell Justin he can see him now and Justin heads over the bridge straight into Colin’s arms. Bless!

So who do you want to win I’m A Celebrity 2009?

Live Blog – The Campers Revolt!

 
The I’m A Celebrity Live Blog starts at 8.30pm…

 
As always just press F5 to refresh as we go along and I’ll be here to blog all the action and have a good old natter.


How do you fancy a good old fashioned rebellion? Well the group call for a crisis meeting with producers tonight and you’ll never guess what it’s over!

SHOW STARTS:

There be snakes in camp!
We start the show with the specialist handlers being called in as a huge snake hides under the campers seating. Eek!

Jimmy is freaked out, "I hate snakes, they’re my worst fear."

The vote lines flash up and all I can say is VOTE GINO! …not that I’m trying to influence you in any way.

Bushtucker Trial: Off The Trolley

Eugh! Tonight’s trial is vile…
The campers put their trust in Gino and Justin, as whenever they’ve taken on a trial they have brought back the bacon. Kim says, "You’ve always been ace and today we need ace!" (They are starving after all!)

Justin says, "we have Gino D’ACampo and Justin D’Camper, what a combination."

They have the confidence but they can they deliver?

For tonight’s trial one camper must sit in the trolley and the other must push. They will hear two specials announced over the tannoy and then Justin must run to the item, grab it and pour it over Gino to find the star – Did I mention that they only have one minute per item and the food is rotten – there’s some creepy crawlies hidden in their too!

First they have to grab strawberries and yoghurt. They find the rotten fruit and rancid yoghurt (infact Gino ends up wearing it) but they fail to find the star in time. There are hundreds of cockroaches in the punnets.

- Next it’s rotten fish and they find the star quickly…

- Then it’s cockroach cornflakes and gopping gherkins… no star they’d dropped it on the floor.

- Yum! cat food and washing powder next… they grab the star but Gino is wriggling, "something is nipping my willy!"

- Bleugh, finally it’s plates of offal and cockroach cakes. Gino squeezes the cakes through his fingers and the cockroaches run up his arms. It’s a great tactic though as he finds the star.

3 out of 5, they’re pleased as punch, they’ll all eat tonight.

Do you think they could have done more?

(Chuckle) – Justin, Gino and Stuart have a moment in the Bush Telegraph and they’re banter is hilarious. Justin is convinced that there is a saucy connection between Gino and Stu, as they wrestle and are very touchy feely. Gino shakes his head and is more interested in talking about Sabrina… He asks Stuart if ‘he would’ and Stuart replies that he likes Sabrina as a friend.

Gino’s not having it and asks, "are you trying to tell me you’ve never had a sexy thought about her?" And Stuart reveals, "okay I’ve had one sexy dream!" Big mistake Stu, the jibes can only get worse from here.

It’s Revolting From Here…

It’s time for the Celebrity Chest and you may want to keep your eyes peeled for the moment of revolt!

Jimmy and Kim must crawl through a tunnel of guts, slime and goop and then search for numbered balls in a cage full of feathers and eggs. LOL! Kim looks like Big Bird from Sesame Street!

The numbered balls they find provide the combination to get the chest… Job done, but will they get the question right? 

"How many stars have been won across all of the trials?"
They try to figure it out and guess at 116, correct! They win cream teas.

But then it all goes wrong!

The camp are provided with just three scones, some jam and no tea! Gino is disgusted as there are five of them.

He visits the Bush Telegraph – "I want five scones with jam and cream and tea! If I don’t get it I will take my mic off and do nothing until the end of the day. I’m sure everyone else will do the same. You have 10 minutes starting now."

All of the campers agree that three scones is "taking the mickey" and they all agree to remove their mics.

‘The voice’ in the Bush Telegraph tells Kim and Justin that the three scones are to share. Kim shakes her head, "no, you are making monkeys out of us and I’ve played this game by the rules. You don’t go into a restaurant and ask for cream teas for five and get three scones – it’s ridiculous!" Justin tries to make nice but Kims not having it, "no, no. We’re not pleading for anything, they’re making monkeys out of us! We’ll leave that plate there till there’s five scones on it!"

Go on guys!

Ant and Dec reveal that the group stuck to their guns and got 5 scones and tea as they requested.

Dropping the pounds…

The group a given scales to weigh themselves and compare their weight to when they came to camp. The results are surprising.

Jimmy lost a whopping 1 stone and 8lbs
Justin lost 1 stone and 7lbs
Kim lost 1 stone 7lbs
Gino lost 1 stone and 4lbs
and Stuart lost 1 stone and 2lbs

Kim cracks me up, she asks if men lose size on their ‘parts’ when they lose weight like women lose size on their breasts. Justin is sure this is not the case but a paranoid Gino runs to the toilet to check. He tells the Bush Telegraph, "I’ve been and checked that everything is the size it should be and it’s all the same as it was… It’s very, very good."

I think you might need a second opinion on that Gino and I volunteer!

Mysterious Ways…

Justin returns from the Bush Telegraph and heads straight for the nearest palm tree. The group are surprised to see a cage drop from the canopy and he climbs in. "I’m not allowed to tell you anything but know this is for the good…"

The group have no clue what’s going on but if Justin can keep shtum, he’ll win a cooked breakfast for the camp.

Stuart tells him that if he needs anything just to shout, but he says he thinks he’ll be okay. Unfortunately the production team have other plans and they bail hundreds of cockroaches in just as he’s heading off to sleep.

Good for Justin, he completes the task and the group are overjoyed to hear that they’ll be eating sausage, bacon, tomatoesand mushrooms for breakfast – Delicious!

Who goes?

It could be Jimmy or Stuart…
It’s Stuart!
Who on earth is voting for Jimmy?
I know he has some cracking one liners but other than that he’s not the most exciting camper is he?

After everything he did for camp, I thought Stuart should have made the final.

God, this interview is just gonna be Sabrina, Sabrina, Sabrina from A&D isn’t it?

Stuart says camp was everything he expected and more. He didn’t like the trial when he had to crawl through the dark tunnel, "I’d love to know what was in there!"

Ant and Dec dive straight in about Sabrina and Stuart laughs, "here we go." The boys run the footage of Stuart saying he’d had a sexy dream about her and they as if he dancied her. "She’s a lovely girl." They push further and he repeats, "She’s a lovely girl."

The boys ask what he meant when he said he would speak to Sabrina on the outside. "I’ll say the same to her as I will to everyone, it’s been a great experience and they’re all my friends…" He’s not giving anything away is he.

Stuart reveals that he wants Gino to win (so do I!)
"He’s a lovely guy, he’s made it great fun and I think he should win it." Here, here!

I’m disappointed it was Stuart, he was a mini Ray Mears wasn’t he? Should have been Jimmy…

See you tomorrow!

Live Blog – Memory Misery

 
The I’m A Celebrity Live Blog starts at 8.30pm…

 
As always just press F5 to refresh as we go along and I’ll be here to blog all the action and have a good old natter.


Who will pass the memory trial, dodge insects and slime and bring home the bacon? Or will they all be left to starve? …and someone leaps back 10 years tonight!

Click here to leave your views…

SHOW STARTS:

So who will leave tonight?
Will it be Sabrina or Justin?

I’m looking forward to tonight’s trial, plenty of dunkin’ dirty fun!

We kick things off tonight as Justin, Stuart and Gino flirt with Kim to get their hands on her bunk. They’d all like to keep Kim company since George left and snaffle a comfy bed in the shelter of the camper. Personally I think they’d get a better nights sleep under the stars. Come on, the woman snores like a foghorn!

Kim being Kim is revelling in all the attention. Gino gives her a kiss on the cheek and before long the conversation flips to Kim and her passion for men.
She cracks me up. With head out the window of the camper she shouts, "there may be snow on top but there’s raging fires burning below… raging darling!"

Ant and Dec break the news to Justin and Sabrina that they have to wait 24 hours to discover who goes. Sabrina is gutted as it’s her second time in the bottom two and she just wants to know.

Bushtucker Trial: Memory Misery!

The campers draw straws for tonight’s trial – Two people are required. Jimmy and Sabrina draw the shortest straws so they will be heading for the trial clearing.

Tonight’s trial is called Memory Misery and the two ‘victims’ must sit on ducking stools above a vat. They must all memorise a series of Australian images connected to a number and they have just one minute to do so…

Ant and Dec will then give them a number and they must state which picture corresponds. If they get it wrong, their friends will get "a nasty surprise!"

Jimmy is asked for the image behind number 10, he guesses it’s the Opera House and a shocked Sabrina is covered from head to toe in slime…then creepy crawlies! She squeals (literally like a girl) and I have to laugh as Ant and Dec fall about.

Sabrina is then asked what picture lay behind number 7, she thought it was a boomerang but it was a mosquito so Jimmy’s seat collapses and he’s dunked in fish guts – LOL! I’m loving this one… 

Next Jimmy guessed that the Opera house is behind number 14 but he’s wrong again, it was a witchetty grub and this time it’s Sabrina’s tirn to be dunked! She screams, “it smells like fish guts and cockroaches!” Dec laughs, “Good guess that’s pretty much what’s in there!”

They go on and on and are disappointed to get just two questions correct. Each question is only worth half a star so that means just one meagre meal for camp. Sabrina says, “It was really fun but I’ve got cockroaches in my pants. We won’t each much tonight!” – It would be nice if she even sounded bothered!  

They return to camp with bad news and the group are not impressed (though they try to be polite). As rations are so low, they decide to skip lunch and save everything they have for dinner. Jimmy is so hungry, "I’ll go off and chew on a log or something" and Kim retires to bed. “I’m wasting away up here, I’ve got no energy I’ll just have to lie down.”

Justin groans from his hammock, “my stomach is eating itself!”

The trials really mean everything at the moment. It was a poor show from Jimmy and Sabrina tonight.

We’re back to Kim and her campervan suitors and boy, are they laying ot on thick. Stuart shouts across to her that she could have some "young blood" if she picks him and Gino kisses her on the hand. She quotes, "give me a man to share my lot, no-one knows what a lot I’ve got, be he poor or riches blessed, send him along, I’ll do the rest!" The saucy minx!

The flirting continues and Gino adds, “She’s a voluptuous woman and she will always be randy. I know she likes the attention and so do I so we play with each other."

You can come and play with me anytime Gino!

Celebrity Chest:

Tonight the group can win treats for tokens as they all compete in the celebrity chest. 

They get into pairs and have to transport a red ball from one end of a cage to the other using the wooden poles provided. If they successfully deposit the ball they will be able to collect a token.

Each team must compete relay-style and they can’t pass to the next team until the claxon sounds. 

The team have the option of winning: Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate, Bottle of Champagne, Packet of Biscuits, Packet of Crisps, Packet of Sweets, Chocolate Bar, Marshmallows, Tin of Baked Beans, Salt, Pepper, Chilli Powder and  Mixed Herbs.

They all try their best but it is Gino and Justin and Sabrina and Stuart who win two tokens for the group. Gino is over the moon that they chose baked beans and salt.

Letters from home… 

Bless them all…
It’s tears all round as the camp receives letters from home.

Justin is near to tears before he starts reading but the waterworks came from a surprising source tonight…

Justin reads his letter from Colin who suggests the two of them get married again and afterward it’s Jimmy White who’s wiping away the tears. “I’m just going to get a tissue I think I’ve got something in my eye – must be dust!" Arrrr…

They are all overjoyed (and choked) to hear from their loved ones: Jimmy’s letter is from his family, Stuart and Sabrina both receive letters from their mums, Kim’s is from her husband (with a meow from her cat) and Gino’s was from his wife and children.

Kim heads for the caravan and weeps in private, while Justin writes ‘COLIN x’ on a stone by the pool. Squishy but sweet…

A night out!

There’s hope for them all yet. The camp recieves a laminate offering them a night on the tiles, well a night out of camp with a karaoke machine!

They split into two teams and have to answer questions on news stories from home.

As Sabrina and Justin are up for the public vote they’re the team captains. Justin picks Jimmy and Kim whilst Sabrina selects Stuart and Gino. Jimmy laughs when Sabrina chooses Stuart and sings “Love Is In The Air.”  

Example questions:
Which celebrity chef has just revealed his brand new face after a cosmetic procedure to smooth out his wrinkles – Marco Pierre White or Gordon Ramsay? Gino, thought it was a trick question and chose Marco. WRONG!    

As reported in the press, who dumped her partner live on television last week – Katie Price or Peaches Geldof? Stuart said, “It’s going to be Peaches Geldof because Katie said that Alex is coming out here.”  WRONG!

They’re not doing well are they?

Phew, Stuart changed his mind about his answer. “Something inside me says Katie has the nuts to do it.”  CORRECT!

Sabrina, Stuart and Gino land the highest score and win evening out of camp in the Jungle Karaoke Bar.  As well as the Karaoke machine they have beer and nuts. Stuart confesses, "the nuts are probably the best thing I’ve tasted in a while."

They’re also permitted songs from a list provided and before you can say swinger, they’re all girating like Tom Jones. Gino and Stuart serenade Sabrina with their version of Sex Bomb while Sabrina wiped the floor with them with her rendition of Valarie – Not the best idea to take on a recording artist in a karaoke battle boys! 

With the music over, they discussed what they’d heard about Katie. Gino shook his head, “I know that she’s a strong woman. I still believe in life (no matter whatever people do to you) there are some things that should be kept by yourself and you relationship.  Some of these things shouldn’t be shared to all the world especially on live television.  Katie does what Katie wants to do.”

Do you agree with Gino?

Meanwhile back in camp:
Justin shaves his beard off and looks 10 years younger and the remaining campers take a look at the poxy sprat they’ve been sent as their single meal.

Who goes?

Ant and Dec arrive to break the news…
I hope it’s Sabrina to be honest, I find her a little boring and think Stuart may open up more without her.

Leaving tonight is Sabrina.

Ant and Dec greet her and she reveals that the scariest part of the competition was the start. "I was terrified of heights and I would have never jumped out of a plane."

She feels like a different woman. "It has changed me, I’m no longer afraid of heights. In fact, I don’t think I’m afraid of anything. We talk to the animals and there’s a snake in there that I’ve named."

And now for the million dollar question. Are Stuart and Sabrina an item? She’s not giving anything away… "He’s a friend like everybody in there." Ant and Dec try to push but she insists they’re just friends… The cheeky smile however says something else.

Finally Sabrina is asked who she’d like to win, She says even though her and Kim had their spats, she’s got so much closer to her. "In fact I’d like any of them to win, they all deserve it!"

Can you say sitting on the fence? Snore!

Do you think the right person left? I do.

Live Blog – George’s Exit

 
So the rumours are true and Glorious George decided to head off into the sunset before the race was won. Personally I think he stood a really good chance as from the comments left, we all loved him!
 
He told Kim Woodburn: “I feel like we’re down to just a few people, all of whom I like and want to see them all benefit but I may be standing in their way, who knows I may end up in the final three, my girl has to go back and at this stage in my life I have to think what is important to me in life. With Christmas coming up it makes sense to spend a few days here with my girl and go back and spend time with my kid.
 
“Time means more than anything to me now, more than money, more than life, I feel like I’ve lived a life and I feel easy in my skin, if this was something huge for me to do or to prove something I’d of stuck at it but I don’t want to take it away from you guys.
 
“I’ve had a really good time but sometimes I feel I’m not contributing to the camp but I’ve made up my mind and want to go.”
 
With a heavy heart Kim passed the news to Justin and Gino: “He heard his girlfriend’s voice last night and he said to me that she’d taken time off and she’s got to go on Sunday, she’s a busy lady and for her to taken this time off for me is incredible, he really wants to see her before she goes.”
 
Leter George decided not to make a showbiz ‘announcement’ but tell the campers personally one by one. “As I played the game, I started to realize this (show) is a very serious thing and I don’t know if I really want to compete against each of you and so I thought about it and spoke to my girl and as she’s here, I’ve made up my mind to go.”
 
Poor Jimmy started filling up as George spoke to them, “You are a very tight bunch of people and the last thing I want to do is go against anybody because when Joe and Stuart did their Trial yesterday I thought I don’t want to do that myself. So I’ve thought about it a while and I don’t want to let the guys down, I want to be straight up with you about it.”
 
With tears falling Jimmy tried to smile, “I 100% support you; it’s been an honour to meet you.” He told the Bush Telebgraph, “He’s been an inspiration to the group and I’m in awe of the bloke, he’s an absolute gentleman, a top bloke.”
 
George then turned on the charm and his sense of humour returned, "I’m going to talk with the wife (meaning Kim). “I don’t want someone else in this camper, if another man is in this bed!" Bless him… Kim is obviously gutted to see him leave (but at least he’ll get a good night’s sleep tonight!)
 
“You’ll be seeing me in your dreams tonight George and I’ll be seeing you in mine.”
 
George told the group: “I’ve had such a great experience out of all this so I’m staying and having one last dinner with you guys tonight and then go after that. The selfish part of me wants to be with my girlfriend and I don’t want to face either of you on a Trial – it would be the end of it right there for me.”
 
For George’s last dinner the celebrities received the ingredients for an Italian meal – flour, eggs to make pasta, kangaroo mince, onion, garlic, tomatoes and parmesan cheese – and the pasta making machine – Gino was over the moon!

Each celerity took a turn to speak to George, but it was Stuart who semed the most touched. “You’ve said some really poignant things to me that have got to me and I’ve cried but you’ve been so amazing and made me want to stay. We’re all going to miss you, we’ll miss your guidance.”

 
George smiled, “So far this game has been extraordinary. I’m a lot better off that when I came into this show.”
 
Then Justin burst into tears, “I’m absolutely gutted. I’ve been overwhelmed by you. We’re losing our captain but we’ll make sure the ship sails on. He’s a noble and honourable man.”
 
…Finally just before George walked out Sabrina sang “That’s What Friends Are For” and Kim finally broke down.
 
If nothing else I think George has realised what an impact he made and how valuable he was. The question is, where will we be without Gorgeous George? Will the camp be drop off into Boresville or will new characters stick their necks out?

BUSHTUCKER TRIAL – BUZZ OFF:

Stuart and Sabrina only managed to scoop three stars out of a posible seven and I’m pretty disappointed wth the celebs and the trial!

 
Sabrina had to dress as a bumble bee and all she had to do was keep her antenna away from the rail above while traversing an assault course. She’s a tiny thing and very agile, but she DID NOT do well.

Every time she whacked the rail, Stuart received an electric shock and a host of critters and creepies flooded over him. I bet Stu was wishing he’d dressed as the rudy bumble bee! He wouldn’t have looked bad you know…

Regardless of the poor trial tonight, once again it’s Gino who lifts my mood and restores interest in the show. While Sab and Stu are filling everyone in on the trial, Gino just wants to know one thing. "So when you were alone in the jungle, did you do any kissing or what?"

"No Gino," Sab replies. "You’re such a troublemaker!"

Go on Gino, get us the goss!

 
 
CELEBRITY CHEST:

Gino and Justin were up for the celebrity chest tonight and to be honest it felt morelike a Bushtucker Trial!

I felt sorry for them as they’d both admitted that they’re scared of heights, and the task was called Rungless Ladder.

They each had just two rungs and that they had to clip and unclip to a rungless ladder. The problem was they had to climb 30 feet and although they managed it they were terrified!

The worst moment came when Justin had a hissy fit as wasps flew from the tree and circled the pair. You know how he runs a mile if so much as a fly goes near him? Well this time he had nowhere to run.

After all that effort the team couldn’t decide which country has the longest coastline, Australia or Canada and they missed out -again!

Will they ever win a celebrity chest? 
It was cheese and crackers tonight too!

…Never mind, at least the producers gave them a lifeline. Later they competed in a quiz about themselves and won a whopping chocolate cake! Save me a slice guys!

See you tomorrow…

George Leaves The Jungle!

 
It has been reported that our Gorgeous George has left the jungle – NOOOOOOOO!
 
Yesterday Hollywood legend George Hamilton confided in Kim Woodburn that he was thinking of leaving and now it appears that he’s followed through with his plans.


He told Kim, “Here’s the thing, I’m going to tell you what I’m thinking, they’re people who are starting careers, I’m at point where this is fun to do, I’m not going to go head to head, so I’m thinking about leaving, pulling out tomorrow.”

Kim was upset by the news, “You’ll do what? You can’t leave.”

George was determined, “It’s about me not helping in camp except in morale, I’m not doing anything. So if I take that attitude then it’s best I left. I can help the odds if I step out. At my age , the time I have with people I care about is important, Barbara is here and we have no time together I don’t see purpose for me to stay. I want you to know that. I’m going to think about this tomorrow."

George was a real favourite with the British public and I believe that he did more than his share as entertaining the troops is a huge part of jungle life – and he was hilarious! I hope he feels the love over the next few days… We will miss him.

Do you think George should have gone?
Could he have won?

Live Blog – The Jungle Jail!

 
Just legged it over from the X Factor blog

The I’m A Celebrity Live Blog is running now…

 
As always just press F5 to refresh as we go along and I’ll be here to blog all the action and have a good old natter.

Tonight’s we’ll see Heavyweight Champion Joe Bugner take on Stuart Manning in a head to head challenge. Who will come out on top in the Jungle Jail and who will be forced to leave with no goodbyes?

Click here to leave your views…

 
SHOW STARTS:

So place your bets now, who do you think will be heading for the hotel – David or Goliath?

 
 
The word in camp is that Joe will come out on top. They all agree that Stuart is a team player whereas Joe has that killer instinct to win, win, win. Have they got it right?

Personally I think Stuart stands a good chance, he’s been desperate to prove himself this week and have a go at a trial – that alone could spare him on.

 

Ant and Dec explain what will happen: “In each cell are three boxes and an escape hatch, rummage around on the floor and find the escape hatch which will be locked, hidden in the boxes is an ultra violet torch which you each need to find and then shine them on the bars of your cell to find three different combinations, but only one of them will unlock the hatch."

Dec continues: “Once you’ve opened the hatch you will find a tunnel and this is your escape… Get into the tunnel and make your way underground, there are gates in the tunnel and you have to find the hidden keys to open them. Once you have opened the gates you will find the escape hatch out here, grab the hammer and the first to ring the bell is the winner.”

Simples!

Joe scoffs: “Whatever will be facing us in there will be challenged by us – it can’t win!”

They’re off…
Both celebs find the escape hatches and torches quickly, but Stuart cracks the combination and is crawling through cockroaches and critters before Joe has even touched his lock.

Stuart finds the first key hidden on the floor and is straight into the second tunnel while Joe is left struggling to crack the jail combination. The actor sweeps the spiders from his body and hits the final tunnel… He’s up and out and Joe is shocked to still be sitting in the cell. 

As he rings the bell to win the challenge Stuart says, “that was difficult, I didn’t know what was down there. I’m sorry Joe is leaving, he will be missed, he made us all laugh."

Joe is forced to leave the jungle with no hugs, farewells or cheers from his campmates. They’re all shocked to see Stuart return, but most seem pleased with the result.

On leaving Joe says that he though "the youth" in the camp would win through. Stuart wasn’t so sure, "I had a feeling I was going today, it’s brilliant. I really didn’t think I’d do that."

In his interview Joe speaks highly of Stuart. He says that Stuart was the one who made it clear that he wanted to make it through to the end, but he wasn’t in your face about it. "He kept it inside, I liked him very much. When it came to our final confrontation I was so happy for him."

He really took a shine to Kim too."When Kim got her mind set on something she got the job done. Even though we had our tiff and I gave her a kiss on the cheek, she didnt say thank you or anything – she knew what I meant. It was like a peace kiss. Why I liked her very much was in the morning, we found out we had to do this duel together and everything was forgiven and forgotten. It was like we’re together, we do this as a unit and off we go…"

He’s so much nicer in interview than he was in camp, why couldn’t we see that guy?

Before his interview time runs out, Joe reveals that he would like Stuart to win. Me, I’m Team D’Acampo all the way – Vote Gino people!

The campers cheer as Stuart returns. Sabrina tells the Bush Telegraph she’s happy that he’s back and Kim is glad, "I think he’s more suited to jungle life than Joe."

Gino smiles, "the romance continues!"

Footage airs of Gorgeous George and Kim Woodburn, bless ‘em. Stuart describes the pair perfectly… "She looks after him and does all his washing and he just makes him laugh all of the time." The clip of them cuddling is hilarious, as George returns from the shower Kim wails "husband where have you been? Have you been with a woman?" …and now there’s a clip of them singing in the caravan and the others are in hysterics just listening to them. I hope those two keep in touch.

Does anyone else think George is like a distinguished version of ‘Face’ from the A-Team? …and with that pointy little tash of his he reminds me of Errol Flynn! Am I showing my age?

CELEBRITY CHEST:

For tonight’s Celebrity Chest, Justin and Sabrina must spin on a roundabout to gradually lower the key. They then have to press a button to stop the world from spinning and grab teh key before it’s hoisted back into the canopy. Mmm… Dizzy much?

After seven attempts Sabrina manages to grab the key and release the chest. “As soon as the roundabout stops you don’t know what direction you’re going in because your head is spinning. I felt sick and if I’d gone on one more time I would have thrown up.”

Today’s question is “George Hamilton starred in 15 episodes of Dynasty, how many episodes did his co-star Linda Evans star in? A: 201 B:189.

The campers take a vote but Sabrina changes her mind at the last minute… "9 is my lucky number, I’m going with 189." Computer says NO!

Instead of some lovely ice lollies they receive rubber gloves and a feather duster. At least Kim will be happy!

Trouble in paradise? Nah!

Kim and George are on form again. George complains that the lettering on his shirts is pink and questions Kim about the washing. "Are you washing the whites with the colours?" Kim scorns, "I’ve only got one bowl of water darling, if I kept changing the bowl for every colour I’d never get done." George giggles and attempts to make a suggestion… Kim stops himdead, "I think you’re an ungrateful old scrotum (they laugh), if you don’t like the laundry then do it yourself! You really are a complaining old baggage…" I love these two.

Then when the others are going down for a shower, George suggests Kim goes with them to do their washing – LOL! "I’m resting" Kim squeals. "And I’m not doing anymore washing until I’ve dried my hair." George grins at Gino, "okay, whatever you say dear." 

Buried Treasure?

The team are offered a treasure hunt to win a treat. The have just 10 minutes to follow the clues and dig up the treasure. They make it just in time and win chocolate for all and a call home for one.

The catch it that they must decide as a group who wins the call. After each camper makes their plea Stuart backs Sabrina (who wants to call her mum) and the others root for George (who would love to speak to his girlfriend and sons – they’re in the U.S for crying out loud).

With no resolve they decide to draw straws and the decision is left to Justin. The interior designer cries as he hands the call to George, he knew it was the right thing to do but was upset for Sabrina.

Gino is disgusted by the flirty pair, "we all thought George should get the call because of his situation but they were being very selfish. At least I know where I am with people…"

(Chuckle) – Justin sings for Gino so the chef gives him a big smacker on the lips! "He sang my favourite song, so I gave him a little treat!"

Don’t go George!

I don’t know about you but I happen to think that entertaining the troops is an important element of this show. As he can’t take part in the challenges and doesn’t have a ‘set job’ in camp, George is thinking of leaving.

He confides in Kim, “Here’s the thing, I’m going to tell you what I’m thinking, they’re people who are starting careers, I’m at point where this is fun to do, I’m not going to go head to head, so I’m thinking about leaving, pulling out tomorrow.”

Kim won’t have it, “You’ll do what? You can’t leave.”

George shakes his head, “It’s about me saying I’m not helping this camp except in morale, I’m not doing anything. So if I take that attitude then it’s best I left. I can help the odds if I step out. At my age , the time I have with people I care about is important, Barbara is here and we have no time together I don’t see purpose for me to stay. I want you to know that. I’m going to think about this tomorrow."

Kim looks gutted and I don’t blame her. He doesn’t seem to think that he’s worthy of his place, but he really is. I love George and I think he’s lifted the campers spirits every day. How about you?

No one is leaving tonight, so I’ll see you back here tomorrow at the earlier time of 8.30pm. Who would you like to see out on their ear?
