Jill Scott required medical attention after her first trial on 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.

The 35-year-old former soccer star took on the Scareground trial alongside Owen Warner and Mike Tindall, and she was left needing medical attention after she faced her fears on the ITV show.

Jill - who made over 100 appearances for the England women's team - was forced to get inside a giant tombola machine as part of the trial, and she was soon joined in the container by loads of critters.

The former sports star complained about the smell during the ten-minute trial and when she emerged from the tombola, Jill revealed that she had a cockroach wedged in her ear.

She said: "I've got a cockroach right in my ear!"

A medic quickly to rushed to her attention and Jill said: "You don't need to look - he's definitely in there! Come to the jungle, they said, it would be fun..."

Jill added: "It's now in my brain. It feels so weird."

Then, the medic used a device to safely remove the cockroach.

The gruesome experience prompted Ant McPartlin to hark back to a memorable moment from an earlier series of 'I'm a Celebrity'.

Ant said: "That's bigger than the one that got stuck up Fatima Whitbread's nose."

Despite the scare, Jill ultimately secured four balls for the beach day prize draw, while Mike grabbed six balls and Owen emerged with ten.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that the first celebrity will leave the jungle on Friday night (18.11.22).
