The 31-year-old reality star is currently competing on the ITV1 jungle survival show and after it was decided by the viewing public that he and YouTuber Nella Rose would be facing Fishy Business together, admitted that he had "always wanted" to have a go at one of the tasks as he set about trying to win meals for camp.

Speaking to hosts Ant and Dec just ahead of his trial shown on Sunday (26.11.23) night's episode, he said: "It’s a pleasure, it’s an honour. I’ve always wanted to be stood here looking at you guys like this, so this is just really, really cool."

Despite his enthusiasm, it was the fifth trial for Nella, who admitted she had come to "expect the unexpected" during her time in the Australian jungle.

She said: "You’re here to face your fears, it’s not really a free holiday, so, you just expect the unexpected all the time!"

Dec explained: “This is Fishy Business. This is a question and answer Trial. As you can see under the water are seven tanks, one of them contains questions, the other six display sea creatures, which are all possible answers. Nella, you’re reading the questions, Sam you’ve got to go and find the answers.”

Ant added: “Once you’re at your chosen tank, which you think is the answer, you’ve got to release the star using only your mouth. Then and only then will we tell you if the answer is correct. There are 12 questions because there are 12 stars on offer and you’ve got 12 minutes to do this Trial.”

The pair encountered stingray and loberrs as radio host Sam tried to answer a series of questions , eventually gaining a a final 10 out of 12 stars as the timer hit zero.

Sam confessed: “All I’ve ever wanted is to make you proud, I'm really proud of us!"

Nella seemed thrilled at the thought of how her campmates would react, and the celebrities dined on mud crabs as a result of their work in the trial.

She said: "They’re going to be so proud, they’re going to be really happy that we’re going to be eating well tonight. Biggest fear - spiders. I don’t like being underground or underwater, but I did."

Elsewhere, viewers were asked to pick one of the famous faces to become camp leader and the results will be revealed in Monday night's show.

What's more, the public have also voted for JosieGibson and Grace Dent to take part in Down the Tubes, meaning that the 'This Morning' star and the food critic will be hoisted up in the air in transparent boxers whilst throwing balls around as they battle against a variety of critters.
