I’m A Celebrity 2022: ‘You bring a one-star energy to proceedings’: Ant pokes fun at Chris Moyles’ pessimism during the latest trial – as radio host and Owen Warner bag just ONE meal for camp
The radio host, 48, joined Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, 23, for the The Savage Sorting Office trial, with Chris reflecting on his previous poor trial performance as he and the actor struggled to win stars.
Noting Chris’ negativity, Ant, 47, quipped: ‘You bring a one-star energy to proceedings’ after the duo had indeed bagged just one meal out of six for camp.
Cheeky: Ant McPartlin poked fun at Chris Moyles pessimism as he and Owen Warner took on the latest trial on Thursday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
With Jill Scott exempt from the latest trial after taking on her challenge on Wednesday, the guys in the camp all put their names forward and remarked they were ‘available’ to try and win food for the camp.
Seann Walsh then expressed his reluctance after hearing the task was called The Savage Sorting Office, telling his campmates ‘Obviously we all know my biggest fear is cleaning up.’
While Jill then said to Chris: ‘I think Chris should go as he wants to have a good memory of a Trial.’
Tough: The radio host, 48, joined Hollyoaks star Owen Warner, 23, for the The Savage Sorting Office trial, with Chris reflecting on his previous poor trial performance as he and the actor struggled to win stars
With it being a two person trial, Chris told his pals: ‘If I’m doing it I would feel safer with someone who is very good at Trials next to me.’
To which Matt Hancock: ‘You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to.’
However, Chris insisted that he feels he ‘should do it’, with Mike Tindall then telling him: ‘Chris, if you want to do it, why don’t you pick who you want to do it with?’
Chris told him: ‘I’m tempted to pick Owen because of our amazing team work the other day. And, no offence, we’re both the best looking dudes in here.’
They’re up! Chris said: ‘I’m tempted to pick Owen because of our amazing team work the other day. And, no offence, we’re both the best looking dudes in here’
Task: As the pair arrived in the trial area, Ant explained the rules, telling them: ‘This is The Savage Sorting Office. You two need to put a shift in and sort through the mail to find the stars’
Mission: One of you will be suspended from the crane in this harness and need to rummage around through the post and find the stars’
Tough: ‘The other celebrity will be operating the crane, but they will be blindfolded and they will receive electric shocks every 30 seconds. There are six stars to find’
As he then announced the ‘two fittest guys in camp’ would be doing the trial, Owen remarked that he ‘loved it’, while Seann moaned in the Bush Telegraph that he was ‘offended’.
With Chris’ past trial disappointment in which he bagged just one star in mind, Matt said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘He feels he needs to redeem himself from his one star episode and today’s his chance.’
While keen to give his pal a boost, Owen promised: ‘I’m going to help Chris turn his one star streak into a full house baby.’
As the pair arrived in the trial area, Ant explained the rules, telling them: ‘This is The Savage Sorting Office. You two need to put a shift in and sort through the mail to find the stars.
Difficult: The trial kicked off with Owen searching through yabbies, mud crabs and eels, and while he managed to locate the star, he missed the postbox when trying to throw it in
‘One of you will be suspended from the crane in this harness and need to rummage around through the post and find the stars. When you find a star you need to get it in the giant postbox there to win it.
‘The other celebrity will be operating the crane, but they will be blindfolded and they will receive electric shocks every 30 seconds. There are six stars to find.’
With Dec, 47, adding: ‘You’ve got 90 seconds per postal cart. If the star’s not in the postal box in that time then you lose that star. This is a Bushtucker Trial so there will be some surprises along the way.’
Fuming: The soap star then searched through cart of snakes and then rats, but he struggled to get his aim right as he once again missed the postbox while throwing the stars, exclaiming: ‘Mate this is so much harder than it looks!’
Not easy: He then faced green ants and managed to land the star in the postbox, before reflecting on his new technique
Checking out the challenge ahead, Owen said: ‘It’s clear that I’m going in the swinging scary thing’ while Chris shared: ‘And I’ll go on the blindfold electrocution thing.’
The trial kicked off with Owen searching through yabbies, mud crabs and eels, and while he managed to locate the star, he missed the postbox when trying to throw it in.
The soap star then searched through cart of snakes and then rats, but he struggled to get his aim right as he once again missed the postbox while throwing the stars, exclaiming: ‘Mate this is so much harder than it looks!’
Oh dear: Chris joked of getting one star again, quipping: ‘Merely by the fact that I was just here…’ To which Ant joked back: ‘You bring a one-star energy to proceedings’
He then faced green ants and managed to land the star in the postbox, before reflecting on his new technique, explaining: ‘I was over throwing, then I under threw it… I’ve found the middle ground.’
The final cart however proved to be the most difficult of all, with Owen not able to find the token before the time ran out.
Fuming at what happened, Owen snapped: ‘That is so annoying’, with Ant confirming the pair had earned: ‘One out of a possible six.’
Gutted: Reflecting on his performance, a dejected Owen later said: ‘My throwing was awful, sorry. I’m fuming at myself’
It’s OK: Chris comforted Owen after the challenge

Fail: Last week, Chris only managed to bag one star in his second Bushtucker Trial
Tough: Chris struggled throughout the nail-biting challenge called Boiling Point
With Chris trying to put a positive spin on things, saying: ‘One meal between six, that’ll go a long way.’
Arriving back at camp Owen blamed himself, telling his campmates: ‘One star and I take full blame. It was my fault.’
I’m A Celebrity 2022: All you need to know about this year’s show
Despite Jill telling him not to ‘worry’ about the stars, an upset Owen moaned in the Bush Telegraph: ‘I can’t help but beat myself up a lot. I’m so hungry and I wanted to bring back good news and I can’t.’
Meanwhile, Matt – who has had great success during his numerous trial – shared his disappointment at the lack of meals won, stating in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Pretty gutted about one star to tell you the truth having… we’ve been lucky in getting full stars for the last few days.
‘We’ll make the most of it, it’ll be fine, but, ah…’
