Yum! Richard Madeley, 65, and Arlene Phillips, 78, rejoiced after winning a cake in a challenge on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! on Monday night
The pair, who have been banished to The Clink with Danny Miller, David Ginola and Naughty Boy, were competing against the main camp for some cake.
When Louise Minchin and Matty Lee arrived, Richard said: ‘You don’t want to be in The Clink guys!’
Louise read out the instructions: ‘Celebrities, welcome to Don’t Blow It! A chance for one pair to win a treat for their camp. In front of you is a flame and a fuse attached to a locked box containing a cake.

‘In your pairs you must answer a series of questions. You should arrange the numbered barrels to give your answer.
‘The pair that’s closest to the correct answer will win that round and their flame will not move. The pair furthest from the correct answer will lose that round and their flame will move closer to the fuse. Once your fuse is lit, your cake will be destroyed.’
Questions included: ‘How many top 10 singles has Frankie had as part of the group S Club Juniors and The Saturdays?’ and ‘How many British soap awards for best actor has Danny won?’
Richard and Arlene returned to the camp with the sweet treat.
The dancing star said: ‘Oh look, let me get close!’
While Richard laughed: ‘They say you can’t have your cake and eat it – well we can, and we will!’
Over the top: However, fans speculated whether this reaction was genuine as they have only been at the castle for 24 hours
While enjoying the confectionary, Arlene said: ‘I’ve never appreciated cake as much as I do right now.’
Richard said: ‘My taste buds were joining in a harmonious chorus of joy. Better than any cake I’ve ever eaten in my life.’
To his campmates he said: ‘I think I’ll have this in one go!’
However, fans speculated whether this reaction was genuine as they have only been at the castle for 24 hours.
