I'm A Celebrity 2012 stars get second Bush Buddy challenge

I'm A Celebrity 2012 - Colin Baker

The I'm A Celebrity 2012 stars got their second bush buddy challenge last night, as they competed for immunity from the first elimination.

The celebrities were told that they would face their second Bush Buddy challenge and would be competing, once again, for the chance to avoid the first public vote.

The buddy’s who faced the second challenge were, Nadine, David, Hugo, Helen, Rosemary and Linda.

When they arrived at the challenge area they were each placed inside a large box where they had to search and deliver tokens which were hidden on the floor and deposit them into a catcher that was located on the outside of the box.

They had to push the token through a hole in the bottom of the box using the magnet provided to guide it across the outside of the box.

They had to land ten tokens in the collector but if 90 minutes had elapsed before this was completed the game would be over.

The speed at which they complete the challenge would determine their ranking going into the third and final challenge, which would be Bed Bugs. The quicker they were, the higher their ranking and greater their advantage.

The buddy who completed the game first would get to spend a night in the Jungle Den with their partner.

The celebrities were also fitted with an electric pulse devise that triggered each time a celebrity completed the challenge.

The celebrities got to work, Helen and Rosemary admitted it was tough but as soon as they were all joined in the box by a swarm of flies, Nadine was the first to shout, “I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

Nadine admitted, “I can’t do flying things.”

David was the first celebrity to complete the challenge, followed by Hugo and Linda. Helen was next out. Seeing that she was the last person remaining, Rosemary said she’d “had enough” and threw in the towel.


Back in camp, Colin commented on Hugo’s image on the cardboard cut-out.

He said, “that picture of him (about the cut out) Hugo he’s looking in a patronizing way.

Limahl disagreed and said “I think it’s a humble look.” But Eric added, “He’s been born with a spoon up his arse. He’s a spoilt brat.”

Limahl added, “You can’t blame him for his upbringing.”

When the camp mates returned, Nadine was quick to explain to ‘buddy’ Eric the reasons she quit the challenge. She blamed David for telling her about “flying cockroaches” and that freaked her out.

She said, “David freaked me out before and told me about flying cockroaches and when these things buzzed out I thought they were cockroaches and I got out.”

Referring to the public vote, she added, “Too be honest I don’t want it, you don’t need it.”
