James McVey and Rita Simons triumphed in tonight's latest I'm A Celebrity 2018 trial.

Called Stars of the Silver Scream, it was up to the campers who would be taking part.

It was decided by the group that James and Rita would take part and they went down to meet Holly and Dec at the trials area.

Dec explained to the pair: “This is Stars of the Silver Scream, this requires both brain and brawn. One of you will push your head up into one of these 6 boxes that are all themed around different films, each with a Jungle twist. When your time starts your job is to release the star or stars that are inside using only your tongue.”

Holly added “However, the amount of time you have to release the stars will be determined by the other celebrity who will be locked inside a giant popcorn machine. Their job is to correctly answer a number of questions related to the film in the box. Each correct answer will earn the celebrity in the box 20 seconds to try and release the star."

Dec then announced: “This is a Bushtucker Trial so you won’t be alone in either the boxes or the popcorn machine.”

Rita felt her film general knowledge was better than James so she decided to go into the popcorn machines and James would put his head into the boxes.

Dec revealed the first film was ‘Brainspotting’ with 40 pigs brains dropping onto James in the box. Rita got covered in popcorn and critters and Holly asked her three questions about the movie ‘Trainspotting’ which she got all correct, earning James 60 secs to try and unscrew the star with his tongue. The klaxon sounded and James did it within the time.

Dec then announced the second film which was ‘Fly School Musical’, James put his head into the box which had 3 kilos of flies inside. More popcorn and critters dropped on Rita as she was asked 3 questions on ‘High School Musical’, she got 2 of them correct which earned James 40 seconds to get the star. James wasn't able to win the star in time.

The third film was ‘Claws’ and James put his head into the box which had 4 mud crabs and 20 yabbies inside. More popcorn and critters dropped on Rita and she was asked three questions about the movie ‘Jaws’ which she got all correct. The klaxon sounded and James easily unscrewed the next star.

The next film was ‘Lord of the Stings’, James popped his head inside the box which had two stars up for grabs and 40 scorpions and 5 burrowing cockroaches were inside. More popcorn and critters fell on Rita and she answered 3 questions on ‘Lord of the Rings’ correctly. James got both stars.

Film number five was ‘Wolf of Crawl Street’ and the last box had 30 huntsman spiders inside. Rita was asked three questions about the movie “Wolf of Wall Street’ she got them all correct and James started to unscrew both stars successfully.

Finally, the final movie was ‘Snakespeare in Love’ where James was joined by 10 Jungle pythons. Rita was quizzed on the movie “Shakespeare in Love’ she got them all correct. The klaxon sounded and James managed to unscrew the last two stars.

Dec and Holly confirmed they’d got 8 out of 9 stars for camp.

On their way back to camp, Rita and James said: “I’m gutted about the one star we missed, I wanted a full house but it’s better than nothing and 8 meals will go a long way.”
