Model Nadia Forde was impressed by camp mate Jake Quickenden last night after he completed a live trial involving snakes, eels and pigs' testicles.

Jake was the first to be voted by the public to undertake this series' live trial - the Critter Cube.

It was based on reality show The Cube except it had a cruel jungle twist where he had to move 20 pig testicles from one bowl to another using only his mouth, tilt a ball from one end of a Perspex plank to another with a python around his shoulders and put his hands in a tank of eels and guess how many it contained.

Jake earned 10 stars for the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here camp meaning that they all got a full dinner, and ex-footballer Jimmy Bullard completed an extra challenge meaning camp got an alcoholic drink as well.

The former X Factor star even changed Nadia's view of him. "I didn't think you were going to take it that calm and collected," she said.

Later Jake spoke of how chuffed he was with her support.

"Nadia said she'd changed her opinion of me a little bit. She didn't think I'd get stuck in like I did so that's cool."

The pair have been flirting for the last few days even getting cosy in a hammock together.

The girls in camp got to talking about their love lives and Nadia and Melanie agreed that they always dated friends of friends.

Nadia (25) said it was hard for her to get to know people and she'd been single for a couple of years. "I kind of like a guy who is full of confidence," she said.

There was tension in the camp after former Playboy bunny Kendra got in a row with ex-politician Edwina Currie.

Kendra said she feels she should do things for herself, including entering the jungle, and Edwina took exception to it, saying as a mother she had to put her children first.

Nadia tried to break up the row and spent the evening comforting a tearful Kendra.
