Dugdale and Johnson a five-star pair in the jungle
Stanley Johnson struggled as he tackled his first bushtucker trial in the I’m A Celebrity jungle, with his poor throwing skills costing the campers much-needed food.
The 77-year-old former MEP has been ruled out of many challenges on the ITV show on medical grounds, but was able to take part in Fear Factory.
The trial saw ex-Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale in a critterfilled box called The Rotator, answering questions and posting balls down to Johnson.
Johnson lay on his back on a rotating cog below and had to throw the balls into a pipe while green ants crawled all over him.
But Johnson had trouble with his aim, making hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly howl with laughter.
“It’s like watching England play penalties!” said McPartlin, while Donnelly sniped: “Worse.”
As the klaxon sounded, Johnson and Dugdale discovered they had managed to get five out of the 11 stars up for grabs.
“Good heavens, fantastic,” said a delighted Johnson, while Dugdale was pleased they were not going home empty-handed.
Johnson told Dugdale: “We did OK, yes it was only five stars but better than a slap in the face with a kangaroo’s tail.”
