Ant and Dec have shared a stomach-churning audio clip of one of them retching and groaning as they take on their first ever I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Bucktucker trials.

The cheeky duo undertake three of the gruelling trials for the first time in the upcoming UK-set series of the reality show, and previously admitted that they were battling the nerves.

And it seems their fears were not unfounded, with the pair having to brave a host of creepy critters and a meal involving a fish eye and a pig’s penis.

The clip shared on their Twitter account was captioned “Who’s making these foul sounds?” and appeared to be of one of the presenters gagging.

The TV stars asked fans to guess which one of them was making the nasty noises, and most people pointed the finger at Dec.

“That has to be Dec! And I think you have just put me off my hot chocolate,” said one viewer.

“Omg Dec, I'm going to cry for u during this trial, I'm gonna feel so bad,” said another.

Show bosses have shared in a press release that Ant and Dec’s first trial is Catch A Falling Star, which seems them try to catch stars that fall from overhead – along with some nasty surprises.

Dec confessed to being “paralysed with fear” while Ant said he felt it was “payback” after they had escaped it for so many years.

The second trial is called Face Your Fears and involves the presenters having to rummage in boxes full of creepy crawlies like cockroaches in order to win stars.

In the third challenge, the pair are tasked with eating a three-course meal comprised of things like witchetty grubs, blended vomit fruit, a fish eye and a pig’s penis.

The series returns later this month but has moved from Australia to Gwrych Castle in Wales because of the coronavirus pandemic.

When the move was announced, Richard Cowles, director of entertainment at ITV Studios, teased that this year’s crop of celebrity contestants would “probably have to swap shorts for thermals” and assured fans that there would still be “plenty of thrills and surprises”.

So far it hasn’t been confirmed who is moving into the I’m A Celeb camp, but rumoured stars include Coronation Streets Beverley Callard, EastEnder Shane Richie and opera singer Russell Watson.
