I’m A Celebrity 2018: Anne Hegerty quits Bushtucker trial after winning just two stars

Anne Hegerty quit her Bushtucker trial on I’m A Celebrity 2018 tonight after winning just the two stars


Anne was chosen to take part in the latest task by viewers in a public vote last night (Monday).

In tonight’s show, Anne headed to the trial area where Dec and Holly explained the task: She would be locked in a series of giant stones. Her aim was to release the two stars from two Perspex boxes within each stone within the allocated time.

There were four digit codes on the walls of the stones and they would correspond to the padlocks that sealed the Perspex boxes. Of course, this being the jungle, Anne wouldn’t be alone in the stones as she would be joined by various jungle critters.

There were ten stars to be won, each representing a meal. However, the first six would go to the the other celebs red team in Croc Creek, the seventh would be for her and would also mean that Anne moved to Croc Creek. And the final three would be for the other celebrities left behind in Snake Rock.

The Chase star headed to the first stone where she had 90 seconds to release the first two stars. She started to try and unlock the padlocks when green slime poured onto her Fish guts then landed on her shoulders as she managed to release the first star. “Ew, ew, ew” she said as she released the second with ten seconds to spare.


She stepped out of the stone and Holly congratulated her. “2 out of 2. You’ve stormed your way through it”.

Anne got into the second stone and this time she would have two minutes to release the padlocks, this time as Mealworms rained down on her.

This time, Anne ran out of time without getting any stars.

“Shall we power on?” asked Dec before Anne took a second and replied “I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here. I can’t do it. I’m so sorry.”

“You’ve got two stars in that bag. There are plenty of people who have taken on Bushtucker Trials and haven’t even got two” encouraged Dec.

Returning back to her camp, Anne explained how the Trial went. “I did the first one in 90 seconds. That was ok. I got two stars. Then it all went pear shaped. Absolutely freak out disgusting. And I came out and I was just covered in gunk and mealworms and I was like no, no more, can’t do it so I shouted I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!”

“Well we got two meals for the other camp. Aren’t they lucky. I really really hope that they’re glad” she laughed.


James said “The sheer fact that she’s here at all is a testament to her bravery. We’re just really glad that she came back. Emily left us yesterday so we’re really glad that she’s back because I don’t think we can face losing another one of our team yellow.”

I’m A Celebrity 2018 continues nightly at 9PM on ITV.
