I’m a Celeb: Ash Williams gets a tick on his genitals and fears for his life

Thursday night’s episode of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has kicked off with Ash Williams frantically calling for a medic already.

After feeling like something was in his pants, the comedian took a look, and to his horror found a tick extremely close to his genitals.

“I’ve got something in my pants, I swear. Uh-oh. Call a medic, I’ve got a tick.”

Grant Denyer is quick to jump up to have a look.

“Are you serious? Can I see? Oh, he does too! We had our first medical emergency. That is right. Ash had a tick on his tackle.”

To campmate Pettifleur Berenger, it was hilarious.

An aggravated Ash wasn’t having it: “It’s not funny, Pettifleur. No, it’s not funny. It’s not funny, mate, I could die from this.”

The medic quickly got to Ash to remove the tick, but warned him that there might be more.

“Have you had a good check everywhere else ‘cause sometimes if you’ve got one, you’ve got two.”

While it was a hard ordeal for Ash, it was nothing compared to the ice bucket challenge the campmates were in for.

Four I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! contestants were in so much pain that they had to receive medical attention after a shocking challenge on the reality show.

In confronting footage, the stars were left shaking uncontrollably after the gruelling challenge with Jack Vidgen fearing he was close to passing out.

In the challenge, four celebs (Grant Denyer, Jack Vidgen, Travis Varcoe and Pettifleur Berenger) were placed in tanks filled with ice water and had to continually swim to the bottom to pump a lever.

The stars were literally screaming in agony as their bodies began to shut down from the freezing water.

“It hurts,” yelled Denyer at one stage. “It’s hard to take breath in.”

“They’re in proper pain,” host Julia Morris said as she watched on. “Grant has actually gone bright red.”

After more than five minutes, the challenge ended with Denyer screaming to nearby medical staff, “Get us out!”

The celebs were immediately attended to by medical staff who covered them in towels and space blankets which are used to prevent or counter hypothermia.

Vidgen broke down in tears and told the show’s hosts: “I’m in a lot of pain. I can’t move my hands.”

The four contestants were moved to a nearby medical tent where Vidgen could be heard saying, “I’m just really scared.

“Physically, it was getting to the point where I was going to pass out,” he said about the stunt.
