I'm A Celeb... contestants wear red socks to hide bloody feet

The "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!" contestants wear red socks to hide their bleeding insect bites.

This year's jungle line up sees the likes of actor John Barrowman, football legend Harry Redknapp, former "EastEnders" star Rita Simons and singer Fleur East ditching their usual attire for the reality show's uniform of black T-shirts, khaki jackets and bright red socks.

However, the show's on-site medic, Bob McCarron, has confessed to Women's Own that the cast's bright red socks, aren't chosen at random, but are actually so blood from insect bites don't show up on camera.

Meanwhile, in the jungle, Anne Hegerty, 60, won an impressive seven stars as she took on Hellish Hospital Bushtucker Trial on Tuesday night (27.11.18).

In the first part of the trial, "The Chase" star had to retrieve a star from a skeleton laid on the bed, which was being guarded by a large snake. It was then to the chest of drawers, where she found another star, but she refused to collect the one out of the wardrobe as it was surrounded by huge spiders.

Moving onto the next room, it was the medical supplies room - where Anne was covered in jungle critters as she searched around for the next stars. Upon successfully retrieving these, she moved to the next room - the operating theatre, where she collected even more stars.

To enter the final room, Anne had to climb through a chamber with a lizard in but on seeing it, she quickly shrieked: "No, no, no, "I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!"", and was helped out of the room and back to safe ground.
