I’m A Celebrity 2017: Amir Khan struggles as he faces first trial

Amir Khan has a tough time in tonight’s I’m A Celebrity 2017 as he faces the first bushtucker trial.


Boxer Amir and Made In Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo were chosen to embark on a ‘Critter-cal Rescue’ by viewers last night.

Over 2 million votes were cast on the free I’m A Celebrity app before presenters Ant and Dec visited camp to announce the result.

Unfortunately for Amir and Toff, the public picked them to face a challenge named ‘Critter-cal Rescue’.

In the challenge, Toff becomes the one half of the unlucky pair to be sealed in a dark cave, while Amir is tasked with freeing them by finding keys.

Of course, neither will be alone, with snakes, spiders and cockroaches among the creatures they’re set to encounter.


“One celebrity trapped beneath a towering nest, lost in a nightmare world,” the Geordie hosts said in a teaser.

“Another celebrity must crawl through the terrifying caverns of critters to save them.”

In this first preview from the show tonight, we see Amir get more than he bargains for as he pulls out a snake rather a key.

In the trial, Amir and Toff will not be playing for meal tokens rather than the usual stars.

To start the series, the celebs have been split in to pairs of ‘buddies’. They will only get rice and beans to eat until further notice – unless they earn one of the golden tickets.

The pairs are:

Boxer Amir Khan and The Saturdays singer Vanessa White


Footballer Dennis Wise and WAG Rebekah Vardy

Made In Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo and YouTuber Jack Maynard

Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas and Corrie actress Jennie McAlpine


Comedian Shappi Khorsandi and politician Stanley Johnson

Tune in to ITV tonight at 9PM to watch I’m A Celebrity and find out if Amir and Toff successfully complete their rescue.
