I'm A Celebrity 2018: Malique and Rita beat Emily and John in latest trial

iac trial 2b

Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Rita Simons triumphed over Emily Atack and John Barrowman in tonight's I'm A Celebrity trial.

Malique and Rita were voted for by viewers in last night's show for tonight's Trial which was called Drown and Out.

The celebrities entered the colosseum as Rita and Malique joined hosts Holly and Dec and the others stood on podiums.

Dec introduced Emperor Noel Edmonds and his Inner Circle which so far comprised of Advisor Harry Redknapp, Fleur East and Sair Khan.

Dec told Emperor Noel that the public had voted Rita and Malique to do today’s Trial and that he had now to choose two gladiators to compete against them. The winning team would have a place in the Inner Circle meaning that they would eat from the six stars that were up for grabs in the Trial. They would also be exempt from all duties around camp.

Emperor Noel consulted his Inner Circle and chose John and Emily.

Dec explained rules of the Trial: Both duos would start the Trial at the bottom of two tanks. When the time started, the water in the tanks would begin to rise. The teams’ aim was to find the keys at the bottom of the tank and undo the padlocks on the coloured levers down the wall of the tank.

Once they had undone all the padlocks on each lever, they would need to remove the chain and pull the lever down. That would make water pour out of the corresponding tap on their opponents’ tank.

When the water lever in the rival tank rose and forced then out of the top then the team had won. Dec warned that there would be dummy keys and - as always - a load of jungle critters with them in the tanks. These included yabbies, eels and mudcrabs already in there.

The water rose in both tanks but it was Emily and John’s that flooded out first meaning that Rita and Malique were the winners.

Holly revealed that they both released three of their five levers but because Rita and Malique did theirs first they won.

“We didn’t give up. We kept on to the end. We’re still winners” declared a defiant John.

But only the actual winners could be made members of the Inner Circle.

“Welcome to the Inner Circle” Emperor Noel said to Malique and Rita. “ You were awesome” he added to Malique.

“I thought that was terrifying to watch. We were just having kittens. It was awful. They are just awesome” he added about all four campmates.

Emperor Noel and his inner circle went to Snake Rock to enjoy the food that Malique and Rita had won in the earlier Bushtucker Trial. Emperor Noel, Advisor Harry, Malique, Rita, Sair and Fleur enjoyed red fish.

Meanwhile, everyone else back in Croc Creek had rice and beans.
