I’M A Celebrity’s return was called the best ever tonight as Nadine Coyle burst into tears, Ant & Dec had viewers in stitches and the stars made the most stylish arrivals in the show’s history.
It was as if Ant had never been away as he poked fun at best pal Dec’s height and traded gags about Prince Andrew’s car crash Newsnight interview the night before.
Nadine Coyle was the first star to burst into tears as she was faced with a skydive
Perhaps the most dramatic moment came as Nadine, who begged producers not to make her skydive in her VT, broke down in tears ahead of a 10,000ft plane jump.
She was comforted by co-star Caitlyn Jenner, who hugged her and reassured it would be OK.
Both women successfully jumped out the plane to complete the terrifying Pontoon Of Doom challenge.
There were sweaty palms galore at the top of the 334ft Focus Tower as six of the celebs took on the famous Plank Challenge, this year with an added twist.
