Arriving at the Trial area, Eric was faced with a tunnel that had been divided into five sections. Eric had to lie on his back on a trolley and pull himself through the tunnel using a rope. There were six stars hidden in the tunnel which he had to untie and collect. Of course, there were various jungle critters in the tunnel with him. He had ten minutes in which to complete the Trial.
He moved himself along and started to fiddle with the knot that the star was attached to as cockroaches were poured on him. “I’m not worried about the cockroaches. I can’t undo the knot,” he growled in frustration.
He retrieved a second star and then got jungle gunk poured over his legs. “They ruined my trousers,” he said.
As he retrieved another star he said “I’m alright mate. Sound as a pound." He didn't like the drop of maggots so much though, crying: "You dirty smelly tw*ts.”
The next section of the tunnel was pitch black and Eric faced spiders in their webs. He found a fourth star pretty quickly but failed to retrieve another. As cockroaches dropped on him, he decided: “I’ve had four. I’ll pass on this one and get to the other one. That was a sweet. We don’t need sweets.”
Asked by Ant and Dec how he was getting on, the Crafty Cockney was confident: "I'm on a roll here, mate. Don't worry," he said as he nabbed a fifth star. Eric summed up the Trial: "It wasn't very pleasant, let me put it this way. I can feel things crawling on me now. I'm looking forward to getting back to camp now and telling them five out of six [stars] - and boy do I need a shower. I don't smell too good."
We didn't like to say, Eric...
