Dug­dale and John­son a five-star pair in the jun­gle

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

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.”
