John Barrowman earned even more fans on I’m A Celebrity as he appeared to do a “slut drop” on his way to his Bushtucker trial.

The actor was racing over the rope bridge to start the challenge when he dipped down, with viewers insisting he had cracked out the dance move.

The moment was quickly declared “iconic” on social media.

“I think that was the first slut drop on the bridge in I’m a celeb history, love it,” one fan said on Twitter.

“Watching @JohnBarrowman slut drop on the bridge to the trial is seriously iconic,” posted another.

“john barrowman doing a slut drop has saved my entire 2018!!” said one impressed viewer.

Another said it was “epic”.

Barrowman also showed off his moves during the first episode of the series, when he flossed as he arrived in a speed boat.

After he completed the Trial he tried to fool his fellow campers into thinking he had failed to win food after facing 20 crocodiles in the latest I’m A Celebrity trial.

The Bushtucker trial saw the Doctor Who and Torchwood actor trying to retrieve stars from a jungle shipwreck filled with critters.

Each star represented a meal for the campers.

Shouting “Come on I’m John Barrowman – I’m up for it,” the actor confidently searched the Scary Rose’s crates, barrels, boxes, crab pots and chests.

He refused to be put off by the crocodiles, water dragons and eels joining him, even managing to collect a star tied to a rope that a water python had wrapped itself around.

“I will admit that I was a little… it’s always scary when you do something like this because we’re not used to confined spaces,” he said afterwards.

“It’s not something I’d do by choice, but I’d say, hey let’s go diving in a sunken ship with a bunch of animals and snakes… and you put a crocodile in.

“The eels – urgh. I don’t know how Harry (Redknapp) is a fan of jellied eels. I just don’t like them.”

Barrowman decided to try and convince the campers that he had failed in his mission, saying: “I want to see their faces and see who gets nippy with me.”

He returned to the camp looking upset and told the group about the terrifying task and how tough it was.

But at the end, he added: “It was just awful… but I got 10 stars!”

The star said his win had given him a boost.

“I’ve been feeling very emotional over the past couple of days but today has lifted my spirits,” he said.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV and Virgin Media One.
