I’m A Celebrity FIRST LOOK: Jill Scott balances on a car in midair as she transforms into Truly Scrumptious for Critty Critty Fang Fang trial

Jill Scott was transformed into Truly Scrumptious as she took part in the latest Bushtucker Trial on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The Lioness, 35, dressed up as the famous character from the 1986 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in a trial that was aptly named Critty Critty Fang Fang.

In the preview for Wednesday’s episode Jill was seen in a car modelled after the one in the iconic film.

The vehicle was suspended in midair in the jungle, while hosts Ant and Dec stood underneath.

As they watched nervously, Jill made her way out of the car and onto to the wing, where she balanced precariously.

Making things more difficult, was the fact that Jill sported a pink and white old fashioned dress and a white bonnet like the one Truly wore.

Dec advised: ‘Take your time, take your time.’

Jill shouted out: ‘Oh my god! I’ve got fish guts on us’.

She then reached under the wing to grab a star, as Ant and Dec warned in unison: ‘Don’t drop it!’

The clip comes as the show is facing accusations of sexism, after Jill became the last woman standing. 

Sue Cleaver was voted out of the show on Monday night, making her the third female campmate to be evicted in a row.

Previously, Scarlette Douglas and Charlene White were booted out, also sparking outrage as they were the only black women in camp.

Viewers at home took to social media to complain that the British public was showing sexist tendencies and lament the lack of females left in the jungle, calling it ‘depressing’.

One wrote: ‘I hate to say it, but sexism rears it’s ugly head. Charlene, Scarlette and now Sue…..’ 

Another echoed: ‘I’m not saying British voting public are racist and sexist, but…’

While a third agreed, writing: ‘3 women leaving in a row – there’s something inherently sexist about that, and Matt f******g Hancock is still there – d******d’.

Accusations: The series was also said to be racist, for the second year running

And a fourth added: ‘Sue voted out of #ImACeleb leaving just 1 woman and 7 men. 

‘Why do all the immensely capable women get the boot? Are they not worthy winners? Depressing.’

Previous campmate Arlene Phillips spoke out about female contestants often being sent home early, as she appeared on MailOnline’s Jungle Confidential.

The choreographer, 79, appeared on the show in 2021 where she became the first campmate to be sent home.

She was followed out by Snoochie Shy and Kadeena Cox, while the year before saw Victoria Derbyshire and Beverley Callard follow Ruthie Henshall and Hollie Arnold out of the castle, leaving just two women and six men.

Speaking on the departure of Scarlette on Sunday night, Arlene told Katie Hind there were questions about her exit.

She said: ‘I was really surprised, she’s just warm, bubbly, eager to take on challenges, she seems to me to be the perfect jungle contestant. I love her personality. For her there are questions’.

When asked to elaborate, she said: ‘I think why a female quite frankly? Because on our show I was first, then Kadeena then Snoochie.

‘Frankie [Bridge] did remain in right until the bitter end, but it did seem to be exclusion of females as quickly as possible.’

‘Charlene I really got her. She was strong and brave. What do females have to do to be recognised? Their strength doesn’t seem to appeal as much as for the male strength.’

Arlene went on to say the problem was systemic, and could be seen in all aspects of society.

She said: ‘It’s very interesting, where women really stand in society. You only need to watch Parliament on TV and as much as parties are trying to bring in females, again in the House of Lords, we are dominated by males, we are swamped by them. 

‘Which is why I think it’s very important for women of every age to be on television. We need to be a stronger dominant force and be able to hold those strong positions.

‘And sometimes I think it’s maybe female viewers because sometimes they’re the ones who do not necessarily support women.’

 She then raised the question: ‘In our year, there were many more men than women, as indeed there are this year. If we were to switch the balance, would it have been different?’
