The finale of this year’s I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! is almost upon us – which will be sad news for some, who will have to find something else to do with their evenings.
But the final trial, the infamous ‘Celebrity Cyclone’, will be different this year due to John Barrowman’s ankle injury.
The last trial sees the remaining celebrities clamber up a slippery, slimy hill as they battle high-powered wind machines in their quest for stars. But obviously, such a challenge would be impossible for Barrowman, who
The last trial sees the remaining celebrities clamber up a slippery, slimy hill as they battle high-powered wind machines in their quest for stars. But obviously, such a challenge would be impossible for Barrowman, who sprained his ankle while walking down a path last week.
As such, the producers of the show have modified the classic trial to incorporate the wounded Torchwood actor.
Speaking on the companion show, Extra Camp, one of the trial bosses revealed Barrowman’s ‘special role’.
They said: “We’ve had to adapt it because of John’s sprained ankle. We’ve made a special role for him.
“John’s the keeper of the stars. He has to solve a puzzle to release the stars, throw them to the other three and they’ll then take on the course.”
‘The keeper of the stars’ ey… you can’t help but feel Barrowman will enjoy that title.
Judging by the trailer though, it looks like the adjustment of the trial will not impinge on our viewing pleasure. As with so much of this season of the show, it seems Harry Redknapp will be bringing the laughs.
The 71-year-old can be seen being heckled by ‘the keeper of the stars’ as he scrabbles around in a puddle. But the former Tottenham manager is soon distracted from his task by the urge to piss, presumably brought on by all the water jets.
He shouts: “I wanna wee! John! I wanna have a wee! I wanna wee!”
… Which for my money looks to be the funniest moment of the series.
Dec then interjects with a megaphone: “You can’t wee Harry, you can’t wee!”
It’s not clear whether Dec is just bantering here or enforcing Celebrity Cyclone rules. Presumably, he can wee if he wants. Indeed, we probably wouldn’t be able to tell, as he stacks it shortly after declaring his urge for a piss and is covered in water and slime.
After that, a ball hits him in the face. So yeah, basically it looks like a belter.
The episode will air tonight at 9.10pm on ITV and only Redknapp, Barrowman, Fleur East and Emily Atack remain in the jungle.
