They successfully managed to win seven stars in the creepy crawly challenged.
It saw them locked in cages while cockroaches, crickets, mealworms and maggots rained down on them.

Vernon read out their menu – rabbit.
“I can’t eat bunny!” exclaimed Beverley adding: “When they said rabbit for dinner, I was like no, no not for me.”
Hollie sensibly decided to fry the rabbit and the mushrooms and then add the rice and beans and the gourd.
But Jessica Plummer couldn’t eat the meat.

“I had a pet rabbit when I was a kid called Boris and I just think of him,” she explained.
However, Victoria Derbyshire didn’t mind tucking in.
“It was a happy vibe at the end of the day because we’d won some food, it tasted alright, although I’m not mad on rabbit,” she said.
Viewers were a little enthusiastic about the prospect of bunnies being on the menu.
One wrote: “Definitely couldn’t eat the rabbit. Nope. The thought of it grosses me out Nauseated faceNauseated face #ImACeleb #imacelebrity”
A second said: “Ok. Them eating rabbit has seriously disappointed me. Rabbits are not food. I’m kinda disgusted #ImACeleb thousands of UK families have rabbits as pets. Serious misjudgment by @itvstudios”
Another added: “Don’t want to see that rabbit as tomorrow is a year since my rabbit died, that’s just horrible #imaceleb”
