Tears, Socks, and Magic starts week 2 of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

• 10 introduced the marvellous magician Paul Cosentino as the 13th cast member

After eight days of slumming it in the jungle…the cracks have finally started to appear.

Unfortunately this all began because of the cracks on Tanya Hennessy’s feet. Hennessy has a foot fungus and Ryan Gallagher mistook her last pair of clean dry socks, for his own.

Cue lots of finger-pointing, he said, she said, tears and tantrums, all leading up to those famous two words: I’m sorry.

Whilst it seems harsh, the removal of one’s creature comforts can actually work for the greater good. Case in point, Tanya again.

Tanya’s tower of emotion continued when she had a heart-to-heart with resident camp dad Miguel Maestre about her depression and anxiety easing off because of her jungle stay. Citing the benefits of human connection for one’s soul, social media sensation Tanya broke down as she revealed she spends too much time in cyberspace and not enough time in reality.

Also struggling with the jungle detox, comedian Nikki Osborne had a case of the old waterworks by the waterfall. Breaking down in front of unlikely ally Erin Barnett, it’s clear the mother-of-two is struggling being away from home.

In tonight’s blockbuster trial, Dreadmill, Charlotte Crosby, Rhonda Burchmore, Dale Thomas and Maestre were pushed way outside their comfort zone. Suspended off a cliff 1600 metres above the ground, the awesome foursome had to run on a treadmill that was dangerously close to the edge.

Whilst Thomas and Maestre soldiered on and secured an impressive five stars between them, Crosby and Burchmore let panic overtake them. A virgin to the gym and thus to the treadmill, it’s safe to say Rhonda won’t be joining Anytime Fitness after this. 

Crosby, who has an open fear of vertical drops, mustered up the courage to step out onto the moving belt to win two stars for camp. There’s a reason why her workout video became the UK’s fastest selling fitness DVD. The girl can run. And fast.

Spilling the tea to her jungle squad, Burchmore opened up about her friendship with actress Brooke Shields. The two of them became friends after Shields asked to meet her after a show to ask where she got her jeans from.

One day on a shopping expedition together, Shields allegedly got a phone call from Michael Jackson. It Jackson was desperate to marry her.

And if the show wasn’t enough of a cracker already, 10 introduced the marvellous magician Paul Cosentino as the 13th cast member.

Tomorrow night ophiophobic Tom Williams is forced to face his fear of snakes in the terrifying trial, Bad Breath.
