He re A triumphant Iain Lee won eleven meals for his I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmates after reaching for the stars in the latest Bushtucker Trial, 'Space Your Fears'.

The boys woke up satisfied in ITV's jungle camp yesterday after enjoying the roast dinner feast that they won in the 'race against the elements'.


It was up to Iain to ensure they wouldn't be back on rice and beans after viewers put him up to his fourth Bushtucker Trial.

Dennis Wise and Amir Khan were concerned about the radio host's chances of success, after he panicked and quit the underwater 'Temple of Gloom' challenge.

"See how the public are, they just pick on people don’t they," commented Dennis.

"Because he cried that day," Amir mused. "I mean, we want to eat again. I’m getting used to eating. If he lets us down, bro…"

Meanwhile, Iain said he was "grateful" to have another opportunity to prove himself - but admitted he was feeling the pressure.


"There's a lot of testosterone, which is not my natural environment," he explained. "I find it quite intimidating, not in a bullying way, just, you know.

"If I let down the lads, it feels humiliating."

'Space Your Fears' saw Iain positioned 100 feet above ground in a 'rocket' named the 'Bush Blaster 1', which travelled along a zip wire.

He had eleven minutes to collect ten stars representing meals for camp.

As the rocket took off, Iain began his search in the cockpit, finding his first star in a compartment full of mealworms. He joked that the result was already "significantly better than last time".

After pulling his second star from a compartment containing 400 cockroaches, the broadcaster had to climb on to the wings of the rocket.

Each wing had two stars, one in a hole guarded by green ants, the other screwed on underneath. He successfully completed both wings, earning a further four stars.


The rocket eventually docked at a space station, where Iain obtained another three stars while balancing on its beams.

Finally, he had to take a leap of faith off the station to grab a large star, worth two meals.

Having got hold of the star, he returned to Earth with a full house of eleven meals to take back to Croc Creek.

Beaming at the result, Iain said: "I really wanted to get eleven stars. On a personal level, I’m thrilled I did that."

"I can go back to the group and say, 'Look, I know you feel like you’ve been carrying me as a bit of dead wood. Well, I’ve earnt my space at the table tonight'."

The other celebrities were just as happy, cheering Iain when he revealed how he did.


"He was just so happy. He was overcome with emotion," said Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo. "We’re all very proud of him. I think he conquered a really big fear today."

I'm A Celebrity 2017 continues tomorrow at 9.00pm on ITV.
