  1. I’m A Celebrity…Get Me out of Here! contestant Dougie Poynter has turned 24 in the camp, but was required to spend his birthday having cockroaches, mealworms, spiders and snakes tipped over his head in a Bush Tucker trial.

    Despite it being the McFly bassist’s birthday it was decided that Dougie would take on the latest trial.
    He was understandably apprehensive about it, saying: ‘Fatima will nail this Bush Tucker Trial but I’m happy to give it a go. I have to do relatively well as everyone is bumming out today.’
    Dougie was greeted by hosts And and Dec at the trial area who wished him happy birthday and explained that the challenge would involve Poynter putting his face in different boxes, full of various critters, in order to extract six stars.
    He giggled nervously but took to the task with courage, retrieving all six stars despite coming very much face-to-face with snakes, fly pupae, mealworms, cockroaches, rats and spiders.

    Dec was ecstatic with the campmate’s valiant effort, saying: ‘You smashed it with three minutes still to go, you can go back with a peace offering!’
    Dougie said the first thing he would do upon his return however is wash.
    ‘I’ve gone four days without washing but the smell was so bad I’ll have to now wash.’
    The other contestants were overjoyed upon Dougie’s return, whose six stars ensured six full dinners for the camp.
    When not being covered in critters, the McFly star has been planning a man-date with Mark Wright to take place once the show is over.

  1. Most people spend their birthday eating cake and opening presents but not Dougie Poynter.
    The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here star spent his 24th birthday in the Australian jungle but he wasn’t sitting around bored.
    The McFly star agreed to complete the latest Bushtucker trial after Mark suggested he should do it on his special day.

    But Dougie wasn’t so sure about doing it at first.
    ‘Fatima will nail this Bush Tucker Trial but I’m happy to give it a go,’ he told the group.
    ‘I have to do relatively well as everyone is bumming out today.’
    The group were not so enthusiastic for Willie to take part as he told them: ‘I will get the stars and then I’ll drop them.’
    As Dougie arrived at the trial, hosts Ant and Dec attempted to sing Happy Birthday to the star but he asked them to stop while laughing.

    The pair then asked him if he was looking forward to doing the trial.
    ‘I knew they would make me do it as it was my birthday and because I was a naughty traitor,’ Dougie answered.
    Race Around The Clock saw Dougie lay down on a giant clock where he pulled himself around it and put his face into several boxes that were placed at different numbers on the clock.
    Inside each box was a different jungle critter and the musician had only ten minutes to release all six stars.
