Watch: I’m A Celebrity hit by another double eviction

I’m A Celebrity has booted two campmates out of the castle for a second night in a row as Russell Watson and Jessica Plummer were sent home.

They follow Beverley Callard and Victoria Derbyshire who left together on Monday night, with just six celebrities remaining in the run-up to Friday’s series final.

It runs for a slightly shorter time this year, which means that there aren’t enough days left in camp to evict one celebrity at a time.

Singer Watson came into camp as a late arrival with Ruthie Henshall, who was the second celebrity to leave on Sunday.

He said: “It felt difficult going in late because you feel like everyone’s established their relationships in there, but they all welcomed us.”

Watson treated his campmates to a number of renditions of songs in his repertoire and explained why he wasn’t shy about showing off his vocal talents.

He said: “I’d like to think it kept morale up, as soon as somebody asked me to sing I was straight up there, I didn’t need any encouragement.”

Leaving alongside him was former EastEnders star Plummer, who admitted to being “a scaredy-cat” on going into the series but said she had developed her confidence.

She said: “It’s so far from my comfort zone and what I’m used to.”

Talking about presenters Ant and Dec’s favourite trial of the series, which saw her and Shane Richie down glasses of blended animal parts and critters, she said the disgusting challenge had been an ego boost - despite it making her sick for days afterwards.

She said: “I feel like that was part of my turning point going back to camp and being able to announce we had 12 stars, it was a big tick on my bucket list.”

Tuesday’s episode saw the celebrities visit a pub, The Castle Inn, as a reward for passing two trials.

However, they are unlikely to be able to enjoy a drink together after Friday night’s final as Wales is banning sales of alcohol in pubs from the end of the week.

I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV.
