John Barrowman and Emily Atack risked it for biscuits in the latest I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Dingo Dollar Challenge - but returned to camp empty-handed.

The Torchwood and Inbetweeners stars teamed up yesterday to try and win their campmates a tasty treat.


Their task instructions read: "Up the tree one of you will go, then shout what you see to the person below.

"They must create the exact same circuit, mistakes may be shocking but the dollars are worth it."

John confirmed: “So one of us has to go up a tree and look at a circuit board whilst the other person has to try and plug in the circuits on a bigger circuit board to what the person up a tree sees and if we get it right we get the Dingo Dollars.”

Emily added “If we get it wrong, we get electrocuted.” John said “Oh joy, I can’t wait.”

John lifted Emily up a tree via a harness and she opened up the circuit board, she looked at it and said “Oh god, I don’t know how to describe this, how should I describe it to you?”

“I don’t know! I can’t see the thing.” said John.


“My worst nightmare are grids and wires.” said Emily. She started to direct John where to put the wires on his large circuit board, “That made no sense at all” said John.

John put the first connector in the board and it was wrong so they both got an electric shock, she shouted.  On the second attempt, John connected the wires correctly. More electric shocks followed for both of them, “The electric shocks were vigorous, they were strong and spurting.” said John.

They finally managed to complete the circuit board correctly which meant they got the Dingo Dollars.

John and Emily walked to Kiosk Kev and saw a sign that gave them the option of tea or biscuits, they decided to go for biscuits.  They walked up to Kiosk Kev and asked for biscuits.

Kiosk Kev called the camp, Rita answered the phone, and he asked them;

What percentage of British men would like to be in a polygamous marriage? A/ 12% or B/ 5%

Anne said “Maybe I’m a cynic but I’m inclined to go with the higher number.” The camp all thought about it and eventually settled on 5%.


Kiosk Kev shut his kiosk in John and Emily’s face. John and Emily pushed Kiosk Kev’s sign off as they walked off and said “I didn’t want biscuits anyway.”

I'm A Celebrity 2018 continues nightly at 9.00pm on ITV, followed by Extra Camp on ITV2.
