I'm A Celebrity 2016: The 'Above Average Four' storm to victory in iconic Celebrity Cyclone Trial


The final four I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! contestants got to take on the legendary 'Celebrity Cyclone' Bushtucker Trial yesterday - and completed it with seconds to spare.

The Cyclone has become a tradition on the show, as it's one of the more fun challenges - featuring a giant jungle slip-and-slide instead of the usual critters and confined spaces.

This year's celebs were so excited to be taking part that they christened themselves 'The Above Average Four' and adopted superhero personas to match their coloured costumes.


Adam Thomas transformed in to 'Spider Boy' and Scarlett Moffatt became 'The Purple Pimpernel'.

Sam Quek was the 'Golden Hockey Ninja' - while joker Joel Dommett went with 'Captain Blue Balls'.

Ant and Dec explained that there were new twists to the Cyclone for 2016, with the team first having to endure the spinning 'Twister'.

The first player would take four stars to the first marker, player two would take three stars from them and proceed to the second marker, and so on. As usual, they had to battle torrents of water, high speed winds and flying obstacles.

Each person with a star on their marker at the end of the ten-minute time limit would win one meal.

Scarlett went first, but struggled to move up the slippery slope and lost all four stars. After she eventually reached her position, Sam set off, but she also suffered a setback when a ball hit her.

Adam began by running towards the cyclone, but the powerful water left him crawling. Joel fell over on his way to the fourth marker, which was closest to the source of the storm.

Just as he made it, a brand new 'supercharged' water dump came crashing down, sending the heroes flying back to the start of the course.

They made it back to their markers with just seconds left on the clock, winning them all four meals.


The celebs were buzzing afterwards, with Adam calling the Cyclone "the best fun I've had in ages".

Meanwhile, Gogglebox star Scarlett was thrilled that she got to experience one of her favourite TV challenges.

"The Cyclone was better than I ever could imagine. I'm not kidding, I've literally imagined it for about ten years now," she beamed.
