Sinitta gets Sharp through jungle challenge

Eighties pop star Sinitta and Fun House presenter Pat Sharp became the latest celebrities to enter the jungle for I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

They chose the hard journey into the jungle to win an evening meal for their campmates, crossing a highwire suspended above a ravine.

Sinitta went first, using a harness as she had hurt her ankle.

She then encouraged Pat Sharp across saying: "Breathe, breathe, breathe."

As he reached the other side, Sharp said he felt "elevated".

But their next challenge was to spend the night inside a cave, later filled with cockroaches, to win their camp luxury items.

Sinitta described the experience of being in the jungle as "my number one nightmare".

One fan said on Twitter: "I'm loving Sinitta already. She is going to provide us with some hilarious entertainment."

Viewers voted for Dougie Poynter and Fatima Whitbread to go head to head in the next challenge, Rat Run.

Meanwhile, Whitbread and Mark Wright had to clear the air off-microphone after a spat.

The pair rowed after former The Only Way Is Essex star Wright tried to keep the camp entertained with his version of quiz show Family Fortunes.

Things started going wrong when Wright asked his campmates who his favourite footballer was and Whitbread immediately answered David Beckham.

Wright said that was wrong and she told him: "Shame on you, he inspires young people."

Comedian Freddie Starr has already left the camp after he was rushed to hospital after suffering what was thought to be an allergic reaction shortly after eating a foul meal of fermented egg and a camel toe.
