Anne Hegerty fought her biggest fears to take part in her first Bushtucker Trial on "I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here".

The 60-year-old television quiz personality - who is nicknamed The Governess - gave the Monstrous Monoliths her best shot, but whilst she only managed to pick up two stars, it was all in all a victory for Anne, who suffers from Asperger's.

Anne was to be locked up in five different rocks, where she had to enter the codes on the wall into the locks on the Perspex boxes to free the stars. However, being a jungle trial, she wouldn't be alone in the rocks.

The first one went well, with Anne - who had been covered in slime and fish guts - managing to quickly secure the two stars. However, Anne struggled a bit more in the second one. She was covered in mealworms and other jungle critters and ran out of time whilst trying to collect the third and fourth star.

Once out of the third monolith, Dec asked her if she wanted to "power on", and after a second, she said: "I'm A Celebrity ...Get Me Out Of Here. I can't do it. I'm so sorry."

However, Dec and his co-host Holly Willoughby were fully supportive of Anne's decision, with Dec telling her: "You've got two stars in that bag. There are plenty of people who have taken on Bushtucker Trials and haven't even got two."

Anne then returned to Snake Rock and revealed all what had happened to her fellow campmates, Fleur East, Rita Simons and James McVey.

She told them: "I did the first one in 90 seconds. That was ok. I got two stars. Then it all went pear shaped. Absolutely freak out disgusting. And I came out and I was just covered in gunk and mealworms and I was like no, no more, can't do it so I shouted I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! Well we got two meals for the other camp. Aren't they lucky. I really really hope that they're glad."

"I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! returns on Wednesday night (21.11.18), where John Barrowman will take on the next trial, Scary Rose.
