Emily Atack was the first celeb to do a Bush Tucker trial on I'm a Celebrity, and appeared to panic as a snake tried to bite her during the challenge, aptly titled Viper Pit. In the short clip, Holly Willoughby looks almost as terrified as Emily as she tried to help to celeb to pick out the star needed to earn the camp food. She said: "Just be really gentle, you might have to move him slightly," before telling Dec: "I've never seen anything like this."

Emily took on the first trial

Emily appeared to be worried that the snake was poised to attack her hand if she tried to put it into the gap to pull out the star, telling Holly and Dec: "I can't move him! Oh my god he's looking right at me." She then screamed as the snake went to bite her. Fans were delighted to discover that the Inbetweeners actress was the first person to be chosen to do a trial after she skydived into the jungle and joined the yellow team. One person wrote: "I think Emily could be popular this year in terms of the public. Strong, bubbly girl aka Toff, Scarlet, Vicky," while another added: "So far Emily Atack is everything I hoped she'd be."]
