Sinitta spends first night in the jungle sleeping with cockroaches


Eighties pop star Sinitta and DJ Pat Sharp have become the latest celebrities to enter the jungle for I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

They chose the "hard journey" into the jungle to win an evening meal for their campmates, crossing a highwire suspended above a ravine.

Sinitta went first, using a harness as she had hurt her ankle.

She then encouraged Pat Sharp across saying: "Breathe, breathe, breathe."




Pat wasn't so enthusiastic and said: 'It was very hard. Really hard. Much harder than I thought.

"The harness doesn’t really help. I’m glad I did it in one go. I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep. Dinner and bed. It’ll just be like being at home.'

But their next challenge was to spend the night inside a cave filled with cockroaches.

Both Sinitta and Pat were told that they had to sleep on groundsheets on the cave floor in order to win luxury items for their future campmates. 

If one of them didn’t last the night, they would forfeit the items.



After much debate, Pat persuaded Sinitta, who'described the experience of being in the jungle as "my number one nightmare", to sleep in the creepy crawly-infested cave.

One fan said on Twitter: "I'm loving Sinitta already. She is going to provide us with some hilarious entertainment."

Viewers voted for McFly's Dougie Poynter and athlete Fatima Whitbread to go head to head in the next challenge, Rat Run.
