The Only Way is Essex star Joey Essex is currently taking part in the Australian version of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, and if he thought he could escape the cold of Britain for the warmth of Down Under, he had another thing coming.

The most recent instalment saw the reality star take part in the Ice Holes challenge, which tasked him with swimming in freezing cold water, finding air holes and grabbing stars.

One of the hosts, Julia Morris, was concerned that Joey had become disorientated in the water and called for the emergency diver to hop in and give him a hand.

The diver assisted Joey to an air hole where he was able to catch his breath, and he went on to finish the Bushtucker Trial with seconds to spare and win all 11 stars for camp.

Speaking to Julia and co-host Dr Chris Brown after the task, Joey admitted that the cold had got to him and he struggled to breathe, worrying that he might have hypothermia. He also said that his goggles filled up with water which made it incredibly hard to see where he was meant to be going.

Due to the pandemic, this eighth series for Australia’s I’m a Celebrity was pre-recorded in September last year, and in the same location as the UK show was filmed before it moved to Castle Gwrych in North Wales. The winner will be announced in a live finale later this month.

I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Australia airs on Network 10 at 7.30pm. A UK broadcaster hasn’t been announced.
