Emily Atack got bitten by a snake in the very first Bushtucker trial of I'm A Celebrity 2018 tonight.

The brand new series of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here kicked off on Sunday night as Holly Willoughby joined Dec as hosts.

They introduced us to the celebs who made their way into camp before viewers got the chance to vote for one celeb to take on the first bushtucker trial.

Emily was voted for by viewers to take part in a free poll via the app. Called the Viper Pit, Emily found herself alone in the dark with more than a few snakes.

With the celebs split in two camps, Emily had to win stars first for her rival campmates before her own.

Holly said: “Your aim is to find 5 stars that are hidden inside the first 3 chambers. Then you’ll reach the 4th and final chamber and for each minute you stay inside you’ll win a star – a maximum of 5 stars up for grabs.”

Dec confirmed Emily had 10 stars in total to win and that the first 5 stars would feed Croc Creek, the 6th star would feed Emily and send her to join Croc Creek as a new campmate and the final 4 stars would be for Snake Rock.

Dec confirmed Emily got 9/10 stars and would now be going to Croc Creek.

10 brand new celebrities tonight swapped luxury for life in the I’m A Celebrity Jungle and will face their fears over the next three weeks.

They are TV presenter Nick Knowles, actor and entertainer John Barrowman MBE, Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer, popstar James McVey and football manager Harry Redknapp.

Joining them are actor Rita Simons, TV’s ‘The Governess’ Anne Hegerty, comedy actor Emily Atack, Coronation Street star Sair Khan and singer Fleur East.

In Sunday evening's launch, John and Sair became the founding members of the red team and Rita and James were the founding members of the yellow team.

They went on to take on a series of challenges which saw them build their teams: Joining John and Sair on the Red Team were Harry, Nick and Malique. Joining the yellow team were Fleur, Anne and Emily.

Once the teams were complete they faced a final boat race challenge which the red team won, securing them not only the luxury camp but immunity from the first two trials.

I'm A Celebrity 2018 continues at 9PM nightly on ITV.
