I’m A Celebrity 2020 latest – AJ Pritchard SCREAMS for help in tonight's trial after his dad labelled him a 'wimp'

I'M A Celebrity's AJ Pritchard screams for help continuously in tonight's Bushtucker Trial – after his dad labelled him a "wimp".

The Strictly Come Dancing star was seen freaking out while taking on The Harm-Oury on Monday night's episode of the ITV show.

He was voted by the public to take part in the BushTucker trial with EastEnders star Jessica Plummer.

Despite his normally cool persona on both Strictly and in the camp, it all goes out the window when he's confronted by creepy crawlies as he trawls through the dark in search of the stars.

However, two people are amused by his terrified screams – hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who were in hysterics the whole time.

He's also not got the faith of his own father, as AJ's dad called his eldest son a "wimp".

    HAPPY CAMP ENDS

    This is the part of the series where everyone moans “they've had it too easy” *cough Scarlett Moffatt and Vicky Pattison*, “they're too well fed”, “they're all getting along”.

    But then this is also the part of the series where everything falls apart! Yay!

    As we can see from that preview, if you put a bunch of celebs in a castle for long enough, the thing that will ruin everything is a pan.

    I'M A CELEBRITY… LET ME WATCH THE SHOW!

    We're just under ten minutes until the beginning of Monday night's episode – the highlight of nearly everyone's day.

    If you thought you were suffering eating too many Jammie Dodgers in lockdown, wait until you see AJ take on the Harm-Oury alongside EastEnders' Jessica Plummer.

    Fans were desperate to see more of AJ after they claimed he wasn't getting enough screen time. Well, it looks like he's going to get a lot of SCREAM time.

    Elsewhere, rumours have it there's a row in-bound. The camp has been in harmony so far, but messy dishes could be what throws the happy campers into all out castle warfare.

    CELEBS WHO KNEW EACH OTHER BEFORE CAMP

    While it is a small world in general, the world of showbiz can be even smaller, so it's no surprise that some of the campmates knew each other from the outside.

    Vernon Kay is actually really good friends with host Declan Donnelly and was even invited to his wedding to Ali Astall in 2015.

    Meanwhile, we all saw the moment Victoria Derbyshire recognised Jordan North – and that she used to order a young Jordan around at BBC Radio 5 when he was an office runner.

    DRY YOUR EYES MATE

    For a man brimming with positivity, it might be hard for people to realise Shane has had a rough ride.

    In fact, before EastEnders, he was on the brink of bankruptcy – and cried when he found out he'd gotten the part.

    He told Victoria how he was initially rejected from a role, but they eventually got him in when the creator of the Slater family wanted to introduce a family similar to the Trotters from Only Fools and Horses.

    Well, who else to play the patriarch Alfie Moon other than Shane Richie? The rest, as they say, is history…

    THE SHOWER REIGNS

    Fans had a little bit of a panic when the series moved from the hot Australian jungle to Wales in the middle of winter – because it might mean the end to the shower scenes.

    It turned out the fans had nothing to worry about with this lot. Rain or shine, they'll strip off and lather up to get themselves clean.

    Most recently it was EastEnders star Jessica Plummer and Strictly's AJ Pritchard who stripped off in Gwyrch Castle's grotty bathroom.

    Sure, a former girlband member and a professional dancer is good entertainment – but viewers got an eyeful with Vernon Kay.

    It turns out no one expected the former model and T4 heartthrob to have a great bod…

    HOW SHANE WENT FROM RAGS TO RICHIE

    Everyone expected Shane Richie to be one of the biggest characters in the camp, but there is a side to the cheeky chappy's history that not everyone will be familiar with.

    The Sun revealed yesterday that he spent two weeks living on the streets after quitting his job working as a blue-hat at Pontins.

    “I was too proud to ask my parents or anyone else for help,” the I’m A Celebrity favourite revealed.

    HIT BACK AT THE BACKLASH

    Many fans were really, really disappointed that Saturday's episode wasn't a traditional one. So upset, in fact, they took their anger out on hosts Ant and Dec.

    The nation's favourite Geordie duo weren't going to take it lying down – and ended up hitting back at the backlash last night.

    Ant said: “We really appreciate the feedback…although I should point out that medically, I can't actually do that to myself.”

    SECRET MESSAGE CONTROVERSY

    Some I'm A Celebrity fans have been slammed for having “double standards” after Giovanna Fletcher was mocked for her secret message home.

    Vernon Kay and AJ Pritchard were praised for their ones, but the blogger's fans leaped to her defence after some trolls were left angry at her signal of putting her hand on her nose and wiggling her fingers.

    But her little signal was a bit more subtle than the boys. Vernon walked up to the camera and just outright mouthed “hi mum” and “hi family”.

    AJ also just wished his dad a happy birthday.

    JORDY NO HAIR

    Our Jordan revealed he didn't want to be seen with a hairy back on national TV – and so underwent a full body wax to make him as smooth as a baby's bum.

    We've seen him do more than his fair share of trials, so I'm pretty confident most of the national would pay real life British pounds to watch him have a full body wax.

    He said: “I’ve never felt pain like it. I got my chest and my back done.”

    Before then? He used to rely on his mum and some Veet…

    SHANE LEARNS THE TIME

    Shane, Shane, Shane, he's the troublemaker in the camp, but he's not always sharp – particularly when it comes to the time.

    During the Castle Coin Challenge, the Alfie Moon star managed to confuse three o'clock and nine o'clock.

    Good thing he's got at-home help – as his wife Christie Richie has assured the 56-year-old their daughter Romanie will teach him how to read a clock.

    Posting on Shane's account, she wrote: “Don’t worry @beverleycallard Romanie our 9 year old daughter has said she’ll teach Daddy how to tell the time when he get home! ⏰🤣.”

    THE JOURNALIST GETS AN EYEFUL

    The poor women of the camp not only missed out on a gourmet Sunday roast in last night's episode, they were forced to face the challenge. And it wasn't very pretty.

    The gruesome challenge – called Bar-baric and which saw the women splattered with fish guts and offal – but left Victoria Derbyshire with an eye injury.

    Medics were forced to wash the fish guts from the journalist's eye. A source told The Sun: “It was a slightly painful one for Victoria.”

    JESS AND AJ TAKE ON THE TRIAL

    What do we have to look forward to in tonight's episode at 9pm? Well, just Jess and AJ FINALLY taking on a Bushtucker trial.

    Fans celebrated last night as the Strictly dancer will finally be getting some serious screen time for trial Harm-ony.

    Viewers were complaining that AJ has been largely ignored by the cameras (… except for when he was stripping off, like in last night's ep).

    But based on the preview we've seen, AJ screams so much that Ant and Dec start laughing at him.

    VERNON'S SECRET SIGNALS

    The naughty celebrities this year seem to have a million little tricks to contact their nearest and dearest in the outside world.

    Vernon Kay's one is as simple as touching his ear, according to his wife – and Strictly Come Dancing host – Tess Daly.

    The Family Fortunes star grabs it when Ant and Dec come live into the camp to announce who is doing the latest Bushtucker trial – it turns out, this is to say hello to his daughters.

    Tess wrote:“Loved Vernon waving hello to Phoebe & Amber tonight! So sweet they loved it!”

    CELEBS ACCUSED OF WEARING MAKEUP

    Fans are getting increasingly accusatory of this year's batch of celebs – rallying against the messages on their hats, creating Covid conspiracies about Saturday's clip show, and now it's makeup.

    Shane Richie and Vernon Kay were accused of sprucing up their looks using secret cosmetics, which goes against the rules and spirit of the show.

    Makeup is famously banned on the show, as celebs have to go back to basics and live without luxuries.

    But there have been past controversies when the show was held in Australia.

    Last year Kate Garraway appeared to have a full face of makeup in the bush.

    JORDAN'S PAL THINKS HE MIGHT HAVE A CRUSH ON BEV

    OK spoke to one of Jordan's best mates of 10 years and etiquette coach William Hanson who blurted out that his pal might have a crush on another campmate.

    When asked who Jordan was closest with, he said: “Definitely Beverley. There’s a maternal element. I know Wendy, his mum, she’s lovely. Beverley and Wendy are very different, but they’ve both got that northern charm and earthiness.”

    He was then asked if he had a crush on her, and he said: “Well yes, who knows?! She’s a lovely woman. I’ve got a crush. We’ve all Googled her in her lycra!”

    FANS ACCUSE ITV OF GOING TOO 'EASY' ON CAMPMATES

    Fans slammed the producers of going too easy on campmates during trials, because of their access to hot water (despite it being significantly colder than Australia!), and now are furious about them writing messages on their hats to loved ones.

    One users tweeted: “This has never been aloud before feel imacelebrity is going easy on celebs this year writing on hats secret messages and beds @antanddec @imacelebrity hope this isn’t the way forward.”

    A fourth fumed: “I don’t agree on the writing on the Hats! Communication to the outside world shouldn’t be allowed!!!!!!!”

    Another complained: “Why do the celebs have writing on there hats are they breaking rules??? imaceleb @antanddec @imacelebrity.”

    Jessica joined her other celeb campmates to send messages to families on their hats.

    She dedicated her message to her four year old daughter Noa.

    Before leaving for the show, she spoke about how difficult it would be to leave her.

    She said: “She is my little girl. It is gonna be really weird but I hope I make her proud.”

    I'M A CELEB CASTLE 'HAUNTED'

    The castle in I'm A Celebrity is rumoured to be haunted and viewers have been sharing their ghost stories of the building.

    Some crew members have refused to work in the 200-year-old ruins after seeing faces in windows and hearing spooky noises.

    One previous visitor to the castle said when she was standing at the bottom the grand staircase she suddenly smelled violets and a dark figure emerged.

    PREVIOUS VEGGIES AND VEGANS ON I'M A CELEB

    In 2017, stand-up comedian Shappi Khorsandi revealed that she was vegan shortly before joining the Jungle.

    However, she ditched her plant-based diet for the show. Eventually, she did confess to falling ill, where she requested vegan-only food for the remainder of the show.

    At the time, Shappi said: “I had meat, and I was really, really physically sick, five times in one hour. It was horrible.”

    In the 2018 series X Factor’s Fleur East and Coronation Street’s Sair Khan were both vegans.

    James McVey from The vamps is a vegetarian and DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles had adopted a vegan lifestyle in the past.

    FANS SAY CELEBS BROKE RULES BY WRITING MESSAGES ON HATS

    I'm A Celeb fans were left furious as contestants wrote their loved ones names on their hats.

    The celebrities have no contact with their friends and family while in the camp, but the group have found their own unique way of connecting with their loved ones.

    During last night's show, each contestant had managed to scribble their loved ones names on their hats using chalk.

    Vernon Kay had wrote his two daughters names, while Giovanni Fletcher chose to send a special message to her husband Tom and their sons.

    Victoria Derbyshire had the names 'Ollie', 'Joe' and 'Mark' written on her hat.
