I'm A Celeb's Janice attacks Cerys for romance with Marc
I'm a Celeb contestant Janice Dickinson spoke out in camp last night, suggesting Marc Bannerman's eviction was due to his budding romance with fellow mate Cerys Matthews.
The supermodel left Catatonia front-woman Cerys speechless as she claimed she would never have behaved in the same way with any member of camp and that she would be devastated to see her own boyfriend developing feelings for someone on screen.
Janice's attacks came in response to Cerys's confusion as to why Marc was voted off the show, advising her that she should be careful about how she behaves on television.
Janice said: "He's like a really handsome guy but every time he hugged me I had to break away because if my boyfriend saw me hugging that guy in the jungle...
"If I was watching my boyfriend hug you in the jungle I would cut his f***in' d**k off," She added.
Contestant Rodney Marsh added: "So what's so hard to understand from that point of view then?"
Cerys was left worried and blank faced as the weight of her actions started to dawn on her but a loyal Anna Ryder Richardson jumped to her defence, saying: "Yes but he did hug everybody."
However, an adamant Janice insisted: "No, he didn't hug me," later adding in the Bush Telegraph: "There's a whole lot of reachy-reachy touchy-touchy that can take place in a hammock and they were in the hammock every night."
Bannerman's eviction has changed the dynamic in camp and added to the already unsettling tension caused by arguments between the older members of the camp, mainly Lynne Franks and Rodney Marsh.
Anna said: “Marc has left a massive hole in all of us actually, in every single one of us and we were all gobsmacked is the only word I can say.”
Meanwhile, serial Bushtucker Trial participants Janice and Lynne breathed a sigh of relief when Cerys and Gemma Atkinson were chosen to perform Thursday's task.
Cerys performed her first ever trial, in contrast to the former supermodel, who took part in her eighth trial during Wednesday's episode.
The trial came as a pleasant distraction to Cerys as she claimed the trial would help keep her mind busy after Marc's eviction.
Ex-Hollyoaks babe Gemma and Cerys greeted presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, who declared they were pleased to see new faces taking part in the tasks, instead of the usual participants Janice and Lynne.
Welsh singer Cerys said: "That's right, virgin trialists."
Dec went on to explain the Bat Out Of Hell task, which involved the girls being strapped into a reverse bungee.
Cerys and Gemma would then be flung into the air and would attempt to throw paint-covered tennis balls at an inflatable cone suspended in the air.
For every ball which hits the cone, the camp would win one meal.
As Ultimo underwear model Gemma realised she would be travelling at 50 miles-per-hour, she laughed: "It's a good job we haven't eaten or else we'd be puking."
After two misses, Gemma finally succeeded on her third attempt and won a meal from camp.
The thrilled 23-year-old shouted: "About frigging time, isn't it?"
After Gemma's turn, it was Cerys' time to try, who made no attempt to hide her fear as she screamed during her first ascent.
After scoring two meals during her first two attempts, lucky Cerys managed to hit the bonus black and white section, which meant she had won an extra three meals for her hungry camp-mates.
Ant told a triumphant Cerys: "You could turn into an adrenaline junkie after that – extreme sports and everything."
Cerys admitted: "That's what I'm scared about, this is nuts. It was horrible. I'm absolutely still shaking it was good but when you realise you've got to fall it's just not right."
Gemma agreed: "I hated it... not a nice feeling."
The two girls happily returned to camp with a total of six meals.
