He’s been pleading to take on his first Bushtucker Trial ever since he made a late arrival to camp.

And Russell Watson managed to collect five out of 10 stars as he was spun through a batter in the horrifying Rank Rotisserie task on Monday’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The tenor, 54, was quizzed on his general knowledge as he earned five meals for the team, before he joked: ‘I got asked to do Celebrity Mastermind, let’s just say I won’t be doing it.’

Musician Russell volunteered to take part in the challenge, stating: ‘I’ve been desperate to get out and prove myself and just give something back to the camp.’

Moments later, the artist appeared to quickly regret his decision as he exclaimed: ‘How did I get here? It’s be careful what you wish for.’

The media personality was strapped onto a metal base and suspended over a vat of freezing cold congealed gunk.  

Russell was required to answer questions during 10 rounds, with a total of 10 meals up for grabs.

As he spun around the tool, the That’s Life hitmaker grabbed a category and could only pass once on a topic.   

Shocked to discover the batter was extremely cold, the singer was questioned about Harry Potter, science, history, jungle royalty and castles.

The Irlam native was able to name the current world record for the men’s marathon, an answer he credited to Mo Farah, admitting: ‘That’s what sitting next to him for two weeks does for you. I’d have never have known that.’

When faced with a television-themed question, the contestant joked his favourite show had been I’m A Celebrity ‘until now’. 

After scoring five stars and five meals for the camp, Russell told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: ‘My Dad’s always said it’s a good job you can sing as you can do sod all else.’

‘I think they’ll be happy with that. I’m happy with it, just happy to get out of there to be honest with you.’
