Viewers tuning into Tuesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! were not impressed as Arlene Phillips and Kadeena Cox tackled the latest trial
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers were not impressed as the ITV show returned to TV screens on Tuesday evening.
After being taken off air for a few days due to bad weather in Wales, the 2021 series was back with a bang – and a hideous trial.
The celebs were allowed to choose who tackled the trial and they decided on Kadeena Cox and Arlene Phillips.
As the pair joined hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, they were informed of what they were about to endure.
Arlene and Kadeena later explained to Ant and Dec why they were doing the Trial.
Ant told them: “Behind that door is the Bed Chamber of Chills. The bed chamber contains a bunk bed.
“One of you must take the top bunk, the other one the bottom bunk. On the roof of the top bunk are 11 stars.
“The celebrity in the top bunk must manoeuvre the stars around the maze to release them. They can then be dropped through a hole to the person in the bottom bunk.
“The celebrity on the bottom bunk will then need to find the star and place it in the collection rack,” he added.
Kadeena, 30, was put on top bunk and Arlene, 78, on the bottom as the ladies were given 11 minutes to get the stars.
Only stars in the collected rack counted towards meals – and this is where the problem lied.
As Kadeena was joined by a lot of snakes in her bunk, she began to panic but still managed to pass stars to Arlene and sang as she continued to complete the maze.
Arlene tried to encourage her and shouted: “Come on, we’re rocking it here!” but then she struggled to keep the stars in the racks after one filled up.
As Arlene continued to fill the racks, she accidentally knocked other stars out as Kadeena begged her: “Arlene, please!”
Ant and Dec were heard giving the ladies advice and at one point asked Arlene to count her stars to make sure no more had fallen down.
Viewers were not overly impressed and took to Twitter to comment.
“Do they just wanna basically do the trial for them? Stop bloody helping them #ImACeleb,” one person tweeted.
“STOP helping #ImACeleb,” a second tweeted, while a third added: “Why are they helping them so much? It’s a trial ffs #ImACeleb.”
However, other fans of the show criticised Ant and Dec for not helping them as much as they apparently helped Naughty Boy during his solo trial last week.
Overall, Kadeena and Arlene won 10 out of 11 stars and won plenty of food for camp – but Kadeena was so overwhelmed that she cried as she climbed out of the bunk.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs 9pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
