I’m A Celeb… 2010: Trial abandoned after snake bites Lembit and Shaun! Plus Christopher Biggins lashes out at Gillian McKeith

The Sun today reports that a bushtucker trial had to be abandoned yesterday after both Lembit and Shaun were bitten by pythons!

The paper states that both men “received deep puncture wounds” after they put their hands into a tub that was filled with non-venomous tree pythons.

A show insider told the paper, “Tree pythons have a good bite on them, but do not carry poison.

“Shaun went first and the snake wrapped itself around his hand and took a really good bite, holding on for ages.

“Shaun was great – he looked really shocked and started swearing at the snake that he would bash it. Then medics were called.”

The same thing then happened when it was Lembit’s turn, and both men received treatment before they were returned to camp while the snakes were replaced by beetles for the trial.

The insider added, “The bosses were definitely worried.”

In other news, former I’m A Celeb contestant Christopher Biggins has launched a scathing attack on Gillian McKeith.

Speaking to The Sun about Gillian, Christopher said, “She’s the worst contestant – ever.

“She must be the most obnoxious, selfish, vindictive woman I’ve ever had the misfortune to watch on TV.

“She’s ruining the programme. She refuses to do anything, and if she cannot do it she should get out.

“She has a huge ego and probably thinks she’s being picked for the tasks because she’s so popular, the poor, deluded woman.

“My advice to her would be to try harder and be kinder. But there is no way back for her now.”
