Meanwhile, Anneka took fans back over 30 years as she kicked off the show in the same manner as her classic TV series Treasure Hunt, which she starred in between 1982 and 1988.

The star slipped into one of her famous jumpsuits as she hurried along to the tent while a camera man raced behind her – similar to that of the programme which saw contestants race against the clock and find directions to treasure from a series of cryptic clues.
