Public vote for Jimmy Bullard to complete first bush tucker trial on ITV’s I’m a Celeb

Jimmy Bullard in his ITFC days

Facing his fears tonight, Jimmy Bullard tackled snakes and crabs as he completed the first bush tucker trial of the 2014 series of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.

The tunnel of terror saw Bullard dodge snakes and crabs in an underwater challenge, searching out the 10 stars - each signifying a meal for a camp mate.

Asked by Ant and Dec why he thought he had been chosen, the former ITFC midfielder said: “Well, I’m a bit jumpy, aren’t I?”

Bullard appeared visibly nervous but managed to get four stars.

However, Bullard valiantly sacrificed the meals to free another celebrity from the slammer and Vicki Michelle was released.

“I was shaken up, like never before.”

Jimmy has shown himself to be anything but the gentleman so far, and tonight reiterated that by telling Michelle that snakes had been spotted near his bed in the hope that he wouldn’t have to give it up.

His mission failed.

Later he said: “There was a time tonight when I was eating my rice and beans when I questioned whether I did the right thing.”

As the show drew to a close, Tinchy Stryder was told he would be doing the next challenge.

  • Don't think anyone on here is interested in the show or Bullard, he was with us briefly, and when he was given a contract, he didn't seem to put in the same effort. I classed him a unprofessional professionall, him and the other waste of space Chopra, had a night out, reported late back for training, and were suspended and fined by Ipswich. Then there was the time he got caught in traffic in Ipswich, parked his car and ran in, because he would have reported in late, very amateurish. Dedicated players don't do this, we were well shot of him

  • Really Ipswich Star is there nothing better to report on? Are you going to continue with this drivel until he is voted out? He's hardly a local legend is he? Maybe it's about time to see what other 'local legend' Paul Mason is up to this week? Ridiculous. No-one cares!!

  • The desperation in this 'story' is cringeworthy. Bullard was described in another article as a fans favourite. Do the people who write this rubbish know anything about the town? The fans hate him.

  • Who is writing all this rubbish? There is no name credited to it all. Are they being paid to watch TV then?

  • @Ipswich star, Are you really going to keep reporting on this trash? Firstly, the show it's self is beyond contemptible and secondly, he was only at Ipswich for a very short period of time, hardly a club legend. Get over it and try reporting on some real news.

The EACH Colour Dash in Christchurch Park in Ipswich in 2015

Christchurch Park is set to get colourful this Sunday, with thousands of people descending on Ipswich town centre for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice’s (EACH) Colour Dash.

Proposals for two devolution deals for East Anglia were put to the government today - but their specifics remain under-wraps with the chief negotiator fearing making them public could “weaken our negotiating position”.

Work is underway on The Buttermarket in Ipswich.

Jack Wills is preparing to open in the former Croydons store, work on the Primark extension is nearing completion and the transformation of the Buttermarket Shopping Centre is now in its final stage.

It may have ultimately ended in defeat to old rivals Germany but Euro ‘96 was far from being England’s worst footballing campaign.

Question Time was last in Ipswich in 2013.

Former Labour Party leader Ed Miliband – a leading campaigner in the campaign to stay in the EU – is among the guests expected at Ipswich Corn Exchange when Question Time comes to town tonight.
