I'm A Celebrity 2016 final: Joel Dommett eats a HAWK MOTH in the classic Bushtucker Bonanza trial

Comedian joins ranks of stars that braved the end-of-series eating challenge

I'm A Celebrity 2016 - Joel Dommett faces his final Bushtucker Trial

Joel Dommett bravely took on the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! end-of-series Bushtucker Bonanza eating trial, featuring a brand new dish - HAWK MOTH.

As usual, all three finalists faced individual Bushtucker Trials on their last day in the jungle - and this year it was Joel that ended up with the signature eating challenge.

He was served five rounds of two dishes - one a delicious traditional favourite, the other a disgusting bush nasty.

Each time he picked and ate the jungle dish, Joel would earn a star representing part of the prize, which included main courses for the finale banquet.

Round one was a tantalising pizza, or a brand new dish on the I'm A Celebrity menu - dead hawk moth. Joel picked the winged creature and said it tasted of "furry".

Next was a chicken dinner with all the trimmings, or pig snout. "I imagine this is what it's like being in a strip club, you can see it but you can't have it," the comedian joked about the roast.

Needless to say, he chose the snout. "It's so chewy, it tastes like something your body shouldn't have in it," he commented.

Hosts Ant and Dec then tried to tempt Joel with his favourite meal - steak, sweet potato mash and peppercorn sauce.

He grudgingly turned it down in favour of two fish eyes, which he held over his own peepers. "I think I've just got fish conjuctivitis!" he laughed.

Round four saw the 30-year-old offered a slice New York cheesecake, or goat penis and testicles. "I'll see you in a day, wait up for me," he whispered to the sweet treat before tucking in to the gonads.

Finally, Joel had the choice of washing down his lunch with a gin and tonic, or blended scorpions. He went with the smelly smoothie, meaning he successfully completed all five rounds.

Afterwards, he reacted: "That was horrible, but I'm really proud."

For his efforts, Joel won all three campmates a main course for their last supper in camp, as well as a drink and bonus treat for himself.
