I'm A Celebrity bosses implement major change to finale as stars tackle final trials


As always, the last three I’m A Celebrity contestants will take on a gruelling challenge each in order to win a three-course meal for their last night in the jungle. However, ITV bosses have added an extra twist to this year’s highly-anticipated last night, with the trio all present to watch one another completing the high-pressure task on the ITV staple.

As a way of piling extra jeopardy on the finalists, the remaining celebrities will all be present for each other’s trials for the first time ever.

After the famous Cyclone challenge with the last four contestants, Saturday night will see one more eviction.

It will be those last three celebs standing who will go face-to-face in the dreaded final trials, with each allocated a course of the meal to win stars for.

One show source said: “The trials in this year’s finale show will be the most competitive and dramatic ever.

“They are hard enough doing them to win a course for the final meal in camp, but now they will have the added pressure of looking their fellow campmates in the eyes as they try to win stars.

“On top of that in the final some people will be thinking about the prospect of being king or queen, so they’ll be watching knowing if the person is doing well or looking good they could be watching the moment someone else wins the series.

“It will add pressure but also be fascinating to see the body language of the trio.

“I wouldn’t want to go last waiting around and then having all the pressure on you to finish off the job.”

Last year’s show in Wales saw winner Danny Miller opting for halloumi fries, a full English breakfast and some chocolate.

Finalist Frankie Bridge went for baked camembert followed by a roast beef dinner and apple crumble and custard with white chocolate fingers for her afters.

The finalists managed to complete all their trials in the final and enjoy indulging in their first proper food in weeks.

This year’s finalists are yet to be decided, but after comedian Babatunde Aleshe’s exit on Wednesday, the last three will be out of Chris Moyles, Matt Hancock, Jill Scott, Mike Tindall, Seann Walsh and Owen Warner.

In Babatunde’s exit interview, he told hosts Ant and Dec: “I’m blessed man.

“Don’t get it twisted I loved it in there, but I needed my freedom.

“It’s crazy to see it. Living in it is a whole different experience, like before when I used to watch this show, I used to always think ‘These guys are just playing, it’s all good in there’.

“And then spending two and a bit weeks in there it’s hardcore and it is intense.”

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues on Thursday at 9pm on ITV.
