Get Me Out Of Here! with the show enjoying its most-watched launch since 2013.

It also came after "I'm A Celebrity" bosses were forced to speak out against tabloid speculation Holly could be dropped from the show before the end of the series.

Some 11 million people tuned in for the first episode - up 700,000 on past year, according to overnight ratings.

The figure is up 750,000 on last year and was the biggest overnight rating of the year besides the World Cup.

This year's cast is TV presenter Nick Knowles, actor and entertainer John Barrowman MBE, Hollyoaks star Malique Thompson-Dwyer, popstar James McVey, football manager Harry Redknapp, actor Rita Simons, TV's "The Governess" Anne Hegerty, comedy actor Emily Atack, Coronation Street star Sair Khan and singer Fleur East.

As you can imagine, the task contained snakes, and lots of them.

A final challenge was won by the red team after they successfully picked up their jungle gear from a pontoon in the middle of a lake faster than their rivals.

PETA's Director, Elisa Allen said: "The Bushtucker Viles - as PETA calls them - prove that the producers of I'm a Celebrity.Get Me Out of Here! are out of touch and out of ideas".

The trial will see her having to collect stars for her campmates from chambers and holes occupied by snakes.
