Jacqueline Jossa has been praised by I'm A Celeb fans after the latest Bushtucker Trial.

I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! is back for another year which means we get to watch a bunch of celebs try to survive in the Australian Jungle.

And the celebs might have only been on our screens for a few days, but they were already forced to take on a pretty disgusting challenge.

Yep, the campmates at Snake Rock were given their first group trial to get stuck into before they joined everyone else at Main Camp.

And a fourth said: “@imacelebrity Jacqueline smashed what a trooper actually cried at the end with her she was so scared.”

Elsewhere in the challenge, James was first to take on the challenge as he was joined by rats.

While Andrew took on cockroaches and Caitlyn was joined by huge jungle pythons, football star Ian had scorpions in his helmet.

Overall, the celebrities won a total of seven stars which means seven meals for camp.
