I’m A Celeb’s Shane Richie and Jordan North picked for terrifying first trial in coffin filled with snakes


SHANE Richie and Jordan North have been voted by the public to take on the first I’m A Celebrity bushtucker trial.

The EastEnders actor and the Radio One DJ will take on the Viper Vault.

Shane looked shocked as he was selected for the trial
Jordan threw up before abseiling down a cliff – and didn’t look too great being told he would be in a coffin with snakes

They will be sealed in coffins full of slithering snakes with a series of safes to crack to win stars for the camp.

This year’s cohort of stars were flown into the filming location in North Wales in individual helicopters as they prepared to take on their first challenge.

The famous faces taking part include Sir Mo Farah, Shane Richie, Vernon Kay, Beverley Callard and Victoria Derbyshire.



Opening the episode, presenter Declan Donnelly said: “Forget everything you know and get ready for three weeks of chaos in the castle.”

The first five celebrities to meet – Shane Richie, Sir Mo, Callard, AJ Pritchard and Hollie Arnold – were tasked with going to find the five other famous faces to help them retrieve some backpacks.

The second five-strong group of celebrities – Vernon Kay, Jessica Plummer, Giovanna Fletcher, Jordan North and Victoria Derbyshire – were tasked with retrieving rucksacks suspended on a cliff face with the help of the other five famous faces.

North was sick as the group prepared to take on the challenge.

“This is the closest I have ever been to a cliff edge,” he added as he geared himself up to complete the challenge.

He managed to retrieve a bag for Sir Mo, who directed him to a rucksack.

“When you are at the top and you are scared of heights, it is petrifying,” he said. “But Mo looked after me.”
