I’m A Celebrity 2020: AJ Pritchard FINALLY does a trial… but viewers are unimpressed as he and Jessica Plummer bring back the LOWEST amount of stars this series
But after declaring they’d hoped to bag 12 stars, they came back with the lowest amount this series – a paltry six.
Prior to the challenge, campmate Giovanna seemed confident in the duo.
Frustration: Monday night’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! saw AJ Pritchard take on the latest trial
‘They’re the babies of the camp, the youngest, they’ll smash it!’ she said, joining them for an impromptu Charleston dance to motivate themselves.
However, they failed to smash anything.
Ant and Dec explained that the Trial was a series of rooms and tunnels and 12 stars would be hidden inside – but everything would be in pitch black.
AJ and Jessica were told to enter separately and only given one bag for collecting the stars, having to find each other inside.

Fuming! When the pair returned to camp, campmates were clearly upset with their efforts
AJ said he’d look after the star bag so it was Jessica’s responsibility to find the stars and hand them to AJ.
‘Oh you really can’t see anything, oh AJ!’ Jessica squealed on entry.
Following AJ’s screams, Jessica found him and started feeling for stars in the dark, coming across different holes, passages and rooms – some featuring pigeons.
Only finding six, they finished the trial downtrodden.

Six of one: Only finding six, they finished the trial downtrodden
Jessica said: ‘I feel really gutted and disappointed.’ And AJ added: ‘It was so frustrating.’
When the pair returned to camp, Beverley and Giovanna tried to cheer them up, as they insisted they’d done their best.
As a result of the trial, the camp was given hare for dinner, which camp cooks Giovanna and Mo cooked whilst everyone else watched.
Speaking in the Telegraph, camp leader Jordan said: ‘Mo and Giovanna are chopping it up and I just feel like everyone is watching them and I don’t know about you but especially in the kitchen if someone’s watching me I can’t do it.’
And Giovanna later added: ‘There’s definitely some micromanagement going on and when you’re in that situation you have to see it as people trying to be helpful rather than just sticking their oar in.’
