He and Jessica Plummer were voted by the public to take part in last night’s trial on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
And Strictly star AJ, who is from Whitchurch, left Ant and Dec laughing hysterically as he lost his nerve while travelling through a bug-filled tunnel in a challenge called The Harm-Oury.
AJ screamed repeatedly in a high-pitched fashion as he travelled through separately to Jessica, 28, calling out her name.
Jess tried to reassure AJ throughout the challenge, by saying: “You’ve got this, you’ve got this, Don’t freak out.”
The pair got six stars out of a possible 12 after working together to gather the tokens.
AJ labelled the challenge as “frustrating”. The 26-year-old, whose parents run a dance school in Whitchurch, later recovered by washing the bugs away with a hot shower.
The shower is luxurious compared to the cold water normally provided in the Australian jungle.
ITV producers have also provided a basic form of central heating inside Gwrych Castle in North Wales, which is being used this year because of coronavirus travel restrictions.
