Tinchy Stryder showed up fellow I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here campmate Kendra Wilkinson yesterday by winning six stars in the 'Catacombs of Doom' Bushtucker Trial.

Earlier in the series, viewers voted for Kendra to complete the challenge - but she won only two out of a possible ten stars before giving up.

Rather than waste the trial, bosses decided to give it a second shot yesterday - and after a tussle between Tinchy and Jake, it was decided that the pint-sized rapper would give it a shot.

With ten minutes to win seven meals, Tinchy climbed in to the catacombs to be confronted by a wall of skulls containing cockroaches, meal worms, scorpions and fish guts, where he got one star.

He grabbed his second as he crawled through a snake-laden tunnel to a dark room, which he rummaged in as crickets, cockroaches and meal worms were poured on his head.

Once he'd found his third star, the 28-year-old smashed through a wall leading to a tunnel, where he found his fourth star among a swarm of spiders.

Tinchy struggled with the next stage, which involved him diving in to a deep water tank full of eels to find a star at the bottom.

He eventually gave up and moved on to another tunnel, retrieving his fifth star along the way, before finding the last one in a water pipe.

Once Tinchy was out, Ant and Dec confirmed he had earned six out of the available seven meals. Speaking about his flub in the water tank, he said: "I wanted it but I’m the worst swimmer. I’m surprised I stayed as long as I did underwater."

I'm A Celebrity continues nightly on ITV until Sunday's grand final.
