I’m a Celebrity… South Africa spoilers follow.

Tonight's (May 5) episode of I'm a Celebrity... South Africa saw a huge elimination cliffhanger, as the two teams fought for survival in a trial.

"Joe and Dean as pride leaders, today you've got your biggest decision yet," Dec revealed, as he and Ant told the group that today's losing pair would be leaving the competition. Joe put his decision back to the group with Toff and Andy volunteering themselves, while Dean selected Myleene and Jordan for the task.

Facing off in the trial 'Gold Rush' the teams were tasked with locating gold nuggets, with Toff and Andy getting off to a quick start while Myleene initially struggled.

"This is ghastly, this is horrible," Toff shouted, as the campmates were doused in sticky molasses. "I can't bear it."

The trial remained close throughout, as both teams scrambled to ensure their survival.

"This is gonna be close," Dec observed. "Neck and neck."

However the episode ended on a dramatic cliffhanger, moments before Jordan appeared to secure a win for the yellows. The move didn't go down well with viewers, with many voicing their disappointment about having to wait until Monday to see the outcome.

"I knew there would be a cliffhanger," one viewer wrote.

While another added: "Literally ending it on a cliffhanger like that and we won't even find out until Monday. Nah. Livid"

Back at camp, tension appeared to brew amongst the remaining contestants, as Carol Vorderman and Paul Burrell voiced their disappointment at the teams opting against "sacrificing" older members of the group.

However Paul's comments didn't go down too well with Janice Dickinson, who took offence at the suggestion that she was too old to be useful to the camp.

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