‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ Charlene White breaks down in a flood of tears as she dramatically quits the gruelling Watery Grave Bushtucker Trial with Boy George
I’m a Celebrity star Charlene White dramatically quit Friday night’s Watery Grave Bushtucker Trial that she did alongside Boy George.
The Loose Women star, 42, burst into tears after the challenge, after yelling ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’
Even before taking part in the challenge, which saw her and Boy George stand in watery tanks filled with sea creatures, she described the gruelling challenge as ‘her worst nightmare’.
‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ Charlene White broke down in a flood of tears as she dramatically quit the gruelling Watery Grave Bushtucker Trial with Boy George on the show on Friday
The pair had to pass stars to one another as their tanks, playfully called ‘tombs’ by hosts Ant and Dec, filled with water and live creatures including crabs, a baby crocodile, eels and water spiders.
‘You might have to talk me through this George, help me try and not absolutely freak out,’ Charlene told him at the start of the challenge, with the panic starting to creep in.
‘I don’t think I can do this. I’ve just come out of the water as I can’t get in with the eels,’ she added.
‘I was fine up until something else fell on me and I was like, ”I can’t.” I think I panicked. I got my head around it and then something else came and I crumbled,’ she said
‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! I was trying, I can’t,’ she said, before crying
‘Calm down babe, you got this,’ Boy George told her.
She soon quit the challenge after letting the fear get to her.
‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! I was trying, I can’t,’ she said, before crying.
‘I was fine up until something else fell on me and I was like, ”I can’t.” I think I panicked. I got my head around it and then something else came and I crumbled,’ she said.
The challenge: The Loose Women star, 42, and the singer, 61, battled it out to win stars for camp, with the duo locked in tanks as they slowly filled with water and water-based creatures
She added: ‘I’m really disappointed in myself and disappointed for camp.’
Back in the camp, Charlene said she misses her children and was consoled by Sue Cleaver.
‘I’d argue, if you look at your first day, what you did before you even got in here, and then if you look at what you were like the first night crying… you’ve conquered everything,’ Sue said.
Panicking: At one point Charlene – who is bookies favourite to be voted out first – attempted to climb back up the ladder as she was joined in the tank by a rather large visitor
Reach for the stars: At one point she struggled to reach the top of the maze before successfully passing it through the slots over to George
It comes as Charlene was named as the bookies’ favourite to be booted first from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
It comes amid claims campmates are ‘sh***ing themselves’ about being beaten by Matt Hancock.
A source told The Sun: ‘Talk has turned to the evictions as they know they’re any day now and a few of the big personalities have started to get the jitters.
Tough: However, the Karma Chameleon hitmaker struggled to reach or see the star, with the water rapidly rising around him
Support: Hosts Ant and Dec tried to help as they advised Charlene to push the star further along, with George still finding it difficult to reach the token
‘Basically they are sh***ing themselves about being beaten by Matt. It would be a real dent to the ego if he proved more popular than them given everything he did during the pandemic.
‘They think it would be humiliating to go out first and leave him in camp sitting pretty.’
Former Health Secretary Matt, 44, quit the role after controversially breaking his own lockdown rules by having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo last year.
Oh no! It comes as Charlene the bookies’ favourite to be booted first from I’m A Celebrity with campmates ‘sh***ing themselves about being beaten by Matt Hancock’

It comes after Charlene dared to raise the dire sleeping arrangements on Thursday’s show.
The star said she’d be happy to sleep in a hammock so that everyone can alternate between a flat bed for a good night’s sleep.
It comes after her campmate Mike Tindall fumed at her because she refused to sleep in the RV alongside Matt Hancock, because she was worried about spiders.
‘I’ve said that I’m fine sleeping in a hammock. We’ve all got to alternate. Even if I sleep in there [the RV] there will still be two people left in a hammock. We’ve all got to alternate so no-one spends seven days sleeping in it,’ she began.
She added in the Bush Telegraph: ‘I keep telling everyone that I’ll sleep in the hammock, which I’m really happy to do. I think maybe I need to be more forceful about it tonight.’
‘I keep telling everyone that I’ll sleep in the hammock!’ It comes as Charlene dared to raise the dire sleeping arrangements on Thursday’s show
Campmate Owen, 23, said to Charlene: ‘I’ve got more chance of having a rest in it than you.’
Owen added that he refuses to let Charlene sleep in a hammock as she’s like his ‘mum’ in the jungle.
‘I feel like saying, go on, sleep in the hammock and I bet you, in the middle of the night, she’s going to sneak up to the RV and get in that bed,’ he said to camera.
Sweet: Owen added that he refuses to let Charlene sleep in a hammock as she’s like his ‘mum’ in the jungle
‘Charlene’s like my mum in here, it’s like me putting my mum in a hammock whilst I’ve got a bed, so we’ll see.’
Owen had volunteered to sleep in a hammock so Seann Walsh, 36, could sleep on a flat bed.
Seann said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Owen, god bless that man, he gave up his bed. I needed that sleep. I really, really, really, really, really, really needed that sleep.’
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues tomorrow at 9.10pm Saturday on ITV1 and ITV Hub.
Annoyed: It comes after Mike fumed at Charlene after she refused to sleep in the RV during I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! on Wednesday
