Shane Richie and Jordan North took on The Viper Vault last night after being selected in the first Bushtucker Trial of this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The BBC Radio 1 presenter was petrified, forcing Shane to step in and support his campmate. However, discussing the ITV scenes on I’m A Celebrity…The Daily Drop, Olivia Attwood pointed out Shane’s own struggle with the trial. 

All eyes were on Jordan last night as the show’s resident scaredy-cat took on a trial.  

Once Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly had explained what their trial would entail, it became clear Jordan might back out. 

However, with Shane’s support, Jordan gave the trial a go and the pair won nine stars out of a possible 10 for camp. 

On today’s Daily Drop, host Vick Hope asked Love Island’s Oliva Attwood, I’m A Celeb alumni Roman Kemp and presenter AJ Odudu what they thought of the trial.

Olivia remarked: “The thing is Shane is probably a lot more scared than we’re getting to see because he’s turning into a dad figure to be the brave one.

“But I wonder if he was paired up with someone else would he have shown a different side.

“But I think he had to be the one to lead Jordan through that. He had no choice.”

“It’s amazing what you’re capable of when you’re scared but need to be strong,” Vick quipped. 

“Did you find you ever had to take on the role, Roman?” 

“Well, the one thing that does happen when you’re in those trial situations,” Roman replied.

“[When you’re] with someone else, however the other person is feeling rubs off on you so much.

“Shane would have become more scared because of the state Jordan was in.

“Because you’re freaking out, you’re on edge, you’ve got someone in a box screaming next to you. It puts you on edge.”

“I remember there was a trial that we did and we were all chained up and water was filling up,” he continued.

“Ian Wright was next to me and we both couldn’t get this lock undone.

“I heard him say, ‘Come on, Ian. Relax, breathe,’ and as soon as I heard him say that, it had an effect on me. We both did it at the same time.

“It’s so important when they’re doing trials together that they’re talking and they relax each other.”

Discussing the trial, AJ commented: “I know I’m really mean but seeing Jordan North in a box full of snakes is the best TV I have ever seen in my entire life.

“Watching the clip back it doesn’t get old. I could watch it back over and over again and still laugh.”

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Continues on ITV tonight at 9:15pm.
