I'm A Celebrity 2016: Adam Thomas wins Bushtucker Trial after putting a SPIDER in his mouth

Arachnophobic actor teamed up with Martin Roberts for 'Pick n Critz'


Adam Thomas finally conquered his fear of spiders when he enjoyed some 'Pick n Critz' with Martin Roberts in an I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Bushtucker Trial.

Viewers chose for the duo to compete in the latest Trial, which involved rangers serving them various critters at the jungle sweet shop.

However, it wasn't an eating challenge. Martin was aghast when hosts Ant and Dec revealed: "You just hold them in your mouth for 30 seconds."

In the first two rounds, Martin successfully held ten cockroaches and a yabby, while Adam took a leaf stick insect and a king cricket.


For round three, they had to choose between a water spider and a giant cockroach. Adam, who had been left squealing by spiders in previous Trials, shocked his company by seriously considering the arachnid.

The Emmerdale actor commented: "It would definitely get rid of the fears."

He decided to go for it, and 30 seconds later he triumphantly released the spider from his mouth.

"Respect, holy cow, that is the challenge of the day," praised Martin, who then managed the giant roach.

It was all change in round four, when the players went to a gumball machine - full of fish eyes. They each had to burst some of the tough organs in their mouths and spit the contents in to a shot glass.

Both completed the task, but were alarmed when Ant asked them to hold on to the glasses.

"Are you having a laugh, you’re joking me," Adam laughed as he realised what round five involved. Needless to say, they had to drink the disgusting fluids.

"Really? I didn’t see that coming," Martin quipped.

Eventually Adam and Martin returned to camp and thrilled the other celebs by announcing that they'd won another eleven-star dinner.

Lisa Snowdon said: "They nailed it again, the boys are unstoppable!"
