As Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo read out the message, with the contestants being told they wouldn’t get their dinner until all contraband had been surrendered.

Gillian looked on sheepishly as the other campmates scrambled around to find out who the culprit was, with the presenter finally admitting she had smuggled in some mints and teabags.

Myleene enquired as to how she had managed to bring the goods into camp, with Gillian revealing she hid the items in her bra.

Gillian, who was a surprise late arrival into the All-Stars series, recently revealed why she decided to braid her hair for the current iteration, saying she drew from her experiences in the past.

“I was bitten by a tick back in 2010. I have quite thick hair and it burrowed under my hair at the neck, so I thought: 'I'm not doing that again'” she said. “The tick bite was very painful. It stuck its pincer into my neck under the hair. It was like being sliced with a razor sharp knife.”

Elsewhere in tonight’s episode, Shaun Ryder was relocated to the downtrodden Savannah Scrub camp at the behest of an apologetic Toff, but it wasn’t all doom and gloom for the musician as he struck up a bond with Coronation Street actor Andy Whyment.

After they got talking about their upbringing, the pair realised they were brought up in the same area of Manchester, even attending the same schools before Andy remarked: “The mad thing is we live not far from each other and the first time we’ve met is in the jungle.”

I'm a Celebrity… South Africa airs on Mondays-Fridays at 9pm on ITV1 and streams on ITVX.
