Carol Vorderman makes friends with a TOAD in the I'm A Celebrity 2016 jungle


It seems I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! has its very own Dr Doolittle, after Carol Vorderman befriended a toad in camp!

As the celebrities were sleeping after their second day in the jungle, Carol found herself awake in the middle of the night.

And when a large toad suddenly appeared, it caused the former Countdown presenter to jump out her chair and shriek: "Ooooh, you little monkey!"

After her initial shock, Carol moved in for a closer look at the amphibian. "Don’t you look at me like that, we can have a chat," she said. "It’s just the two of us.

"Halt! Who goes there, friend or foe? I’ve got frog eyes too, you’re a big boy aren’t you?"

When morning dawned, Carol visited the Bush Telegraph to reveal all about her new friend.

"It was quite nice talking to him, he wasn't really doing any harm" she commented. "Nobody else was awake to talk to, and so I quite like my toad."

However, not everyone seemed thrilled about the latest arrival in camp. Scarlett Moffatt spread the news, saying: "Carol was telling me she found two toads this morning."

"I’m so glad I didn’t see a toad, they're so slimy and squidgy and big. I’d have struggled to sleep!" a squeamish Sam Quek reacted.

We wonder if Carol will be as friendly with the wildlife when they're surrounding her in a Bushtucker Trial...

I'm A Celebrity airs nightly on ITV, although there's no show tomorrow due to football.
