I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here star Phil Tufnell had some royal support as he continued his 500-mile charity hike when the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips joined the ex-England cricketer for the latest leg of the trek.

Twenty-two-year-old Zara accompanied Phil for 16 miles from Evesham to Worcester, in an effort to help the reality TV champ raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Relief.

Phil's 28-day effort, which began on May 16, is set to wrap up at Nottingham's Trent Bridge cricket ground on June 12, just in time for the final of England's test series against New Zealand.

Now about one-third of the way through, committed fundraiser Phil revealed the tough endeavour has been no walk in the park after developing painful tendonitis in both feet. "Somebody please put me out of my misery," he wrote in his online diary. "I'm hurting so much that every step is like walking on hot needles."
