The TV nutritionist fainted after being locked in an rat-infested crate during her first bushtucker trial
The star – who lay in a rat infested crate during the dramatic ordeal – was meant to be unlocking padlocks around her arms and legs in order to free herself, and win food for the rest of the team.
But Gillian – who has phobias of rats, insects, heights and enclosed spaces – panicked and passed out in the wooden box, forcing worried medics to step in and haul her out.
She was resuscitated and given Oxygen by the trained staff - who are always on standby during the gruelling tasks – before making her way back to the camp.
‘I wasn’t expecting anything in there. I thought there was going to be tons of water on my face, I couldn’t see the lock,’ Gillian told the rest of the camp of the task.
'I could feel myself passing out. I have massive phobias that I’m facing. It’s not like I’m not trying.
‘It was a race and Lembit won the race. I definitely tried. I fainted twice. They had to give me oxygen. ‘
The struggling star has already been nominated by the public to face another task tonight, sparking fears she will soon quit the show.
Meanwhie, it’s thought cheeky duo Jedward are expected to join the fun and games in the jungle later this week.
