I'm A Celebrity contestant Paul Burrell braved snakes, ants and cockroaches during his latest bushtucker trial, winning meals for all four of the remaining celebrity jungle residents.
The former royal butler, who says he is petrified of snakes, was forced to blindly put his hand into five holes in a rock face and pull out stars during the "Hell Hole" challenge.
Burrell found a collection of green ants in the first hole, whilst he was greeted by a host of cockroaches in the second.
"There's something grabbing hold of me. It's horrible stuff. Beetles?" shrieked Burrell as he made contact with the creepy crawlies.
Approaching the third hole, populated by huntsman spiders, Burrell's fear of coming into contact with a snake grew.
"Oh please don't let it be a snake. Don't let it be a snake, " he said.
Burrell found a group of rats in hole number four, before facing his greatest fear in the final one.
"It's a snake, it's a snake. You buggers, it's a snake," the scared celebrity said.
On Saturday remaining contestants Paul Burrell, Joe Pasquale, Janet Street-Porter and Fran Cosgrave were told by hosts Ant and Dec that Natalie Appleton's decision to quit the show last Monday meant they would be spared eviction for another day.
The last four stars in the reality TV show will do a joint Bushtucker Trial on Sunday.
