ACTRESS Lorraine Chase and TV presenter Pat Sharp have been thrown out of the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! jungle.

The first double eviction this series saw the former Emmerdale star booted out in last night's show, after she polled the fewest public votes.

Fun House presenter Sharp was also kicked out after losing a special Bushtucker Trial against athlete campmate Fatima Whitbread.

The pair were pitted against each other when they won the fewest public votes to keep them in the Australian jungle in Saturday night's show.

Leaving the camp, an emotional Chase said she had challenged herself to appear on the show for her 60th birthday.

She said: "It got to November - I only knew two weeks before that I was coming in, so I thought, oh my God, it's a gift.

"I'm trying to look on the internet to see what I can do for my 60th year and it's November - I've only got December and it's gone - and I thought, it's a gift.

"And when I came in I thought, oh, maybe not, because it is so tough."

Her campmate Sharp was disappointed to be leaving the jungle.

He lost out to Whitbread in the Fill Your Face - Extreme Bushtucker Trial, even though the Olympic athlete got a cockroach trapped up her nose.

He said: "It's good to go out and see my missus and see you guys and everything else but I would have liked to have carried on because I was actually getting quite used to it even though I was very hungry.

"I would love to have won it, without a doubt, because I think you get a feeling of the fact that you've carried on and people like you.

"If you think about it, everything that I was asked to do, I pretty much achieved."

In the Bushtucker Trial, which presenters Ant and Dec dubbed "an epic clash", the celebrities had to wear a plastic bubble helmet while it was filled by soldier crabs, scorpions, huntsmen spiders, snakes and cockroaches.

After both celebrities clocked up five points each, Whitbread won a tiebreaker in which they had to root around in boxes of mealworms to find stars.

They kissed each other goodbye immediately afterwards despite putting their faces in the boxes.

Whitbread said she was "absolutely delighted" to be staying in the competition.

But all did not go her way. A medic had to rescue her when one of 7,500 cockroaches poured into the helmet crawled up her nose.

"There's definitely something wriggling about in there," she shrieked as Ant and Dec looked on, shocked.

The creepy crawly was set free when a medic put a water syringe up her nose.

Roles in the camp were dished out to the celebrities, with Jessica-Jane Clement named "camp skivvy".

But her title appeared to confuse her. "I'm camp divvy," she confidently announced.
