I'm A Celeb's Snoochie Shy wails in fright in first look at Treacherous Traps trial

By Seamus Duff

I’m A Celeb has only been back on screens for two days but already it looks like Snoochie Shy is having the worst time of all the stars on the show.

The 29-year-old radio host can be seen screaming in fear in the first look snaps of the third episode of the long-running series – which will air just hours after fans saw Snoochie struggle through a stomach churning eating challenge.

Tuesday night’s show will see Snoochie take part in a challenge called Treacherous Traps after being voted by the public to take part in the frightening challenge.

The previous night, Snoochie was shown shaking in terror when hosts Ant and Dec told her she had been voted by the public to take part in the next task.

Louise Minchin tried to reassure her that she had been voted to take part in the task: “It’s because you were so good!”

Asked what she thought the task might involve, the radio star said: “In a trap, with bugs and stuff and all of that.”

She was encouraged by her fellow campmates to “just breathe” while she shook her head in disbelief and horror.

And first look photos of the challenge seem to have confirmed Snoochie’s worst fears.

Before she entered the show, the radio host explained that being trapped in a tight space with insects was her worst fear.

She said in a pre-entry statement: "[Lying in a coffin with creepy crawlies] is my big fear. I’ve seen bugs go up people’s noses before and I am scared bugs are going to go up my private parts.

"But I am excited about taking part and as soon as they asked me to come on the show, I said yes.”

There are of course hopes that the broadcaster might have the chance to redeem herself after she failed in the eating challenge opposite Danny Miller on Monday.

I’m A Celeb fans felt on Monday night that Snoochie was robbed of the win after wolfing down revolting dishes in The Castle's Dreaded Diner challenge.

This included cow's nose, sheep's feet and a fermented duck egg, with Snoochie forced to eat two more foods than Danny as she spun the wheel and ended up with a meal rather than one dish.

But the pair reached a draw before being asked to down a fermented tofu drink as part of a tie-break decider – with Snoochie failing in the final task.

Fans took to social media to send commiserations to the star.

One fan raged: "That trial wasn’t fair at all. They both ate all meals and then it’s down to a tie breaker. It’s not entertaining seeing people not eat especially when they’ve done what was asked. I’m gutted for Snoochie.”

While another wrote: "As if they didn’t give Snoochie a single thing for that trial she smashed it.”

Despite her fears and failures, Snoochie said in her pre-show interview she hoped to show fans a different side to her.

She gushed:"I am actually quite a shy person when I am outside my comfort zone. I think my shy side might come out and I might be quite shy in the first couple of days but I also will definitely be a team player.”

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV tonight at 9:15pm.
