This year I can change a lot of things for a celebrity, but one thing is the same as always: campers each have to complete some exceptionally tedious tasks.
And tonight’s episode will see former star Shane Ritchie and radio presenter Jordan North watching the first Bushtaker trial of 2020 – The Viper Vault.
Home viewers voted the pair to be the first to try their hand at a trial, and that certainly doesn’t seem like an easy task for celebs.
The trial will see them placed in coffins full of snakes, while they will try to unlock the safes in an attempt to win as many stars as possible for the camp.
In a preview clip released by ITV, Ant and Dees are seen explaining the task to the astonished looking Shane and Jordan.
The ant says: “As the name implies, you will not be alone there. You can stop the trial by saying ‘I’m a celebrity get me out here’, but it will stop the trial for you and your spouse, and any subsequent stars will be lost. “
DC adds: “And you don’t have to try, you never have to try here, you can go back to camp but you go back empty handed.”
After December, Jordan is asked what he thinks, to which he replies: “I don’t really think I’ve ever been so scared in my whole life. I mean, I don’t like to fly and I get nervous before I get on a plane, but before this… ”Shane comforts his fellow campmate.

This is the first time the coronavirus has been kept away from the jungles of Australia due to travel restrictions, while the series also marks the show’s 20th anniversary.
Two more celebrities are also set to join the original top ten at the camp – comments made by tenor Russell Watson suggest he could be one of the contestants to be unveiled.
