Emmerdale take on Corrie for Text Santa

Congratulations to the Emmerdale Netball team who went head to head with soap rivals Coronation Street for charity Text Santa. The Woolpack girls had a lot to prove after they lost in the first event of its kind, held last year. This time Emmerdale got off to a flying start in front of the thousand seater sell out audience - and held the lead for the duration of the match. Final score was 23 - 18. All money raised will go to ITV's Text Santa campaign.

Scunthorpe's Quickenden causes a stir in the Jungle

Scunthorpe's Jake Quickenden caused a bit of a stink in the jungle - by accusing Playboy model Kendra of smelling like a "feral dog".

The former X Factor star has been a huge hit with his female fellow contestants on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here since he joined them with Edwina Currie.

And the sexual tension continued to simmer in the Australian jungle as the Scunthorpe-based heartthrob grabbed the girls' attention - by fair means or foul.

Sitting with Kendra, Jake told the US star that she stank, adding: "I can smell you over there."

Kendra admitted she smells and Quickenden said: "She smells like a feral dog."

To add insult to injury, former Hull City footballer Jimmy Bullard said: "I've not even known men to smell like that."

It came after Quickenden had tried his hand at flirting with Nadia Forde - with little initial success.

He told her "How do you look so fresh in the morning? You look better in the morning than at night", but got two fingers for a reply.

After the Irish model took off her top, revealing her bra, the 26-year-old former X Factor contestant said: "Oh gosh, you're not shy, are you?"

Later the pair sat together eating rice and beans, which Jake described as "technically our first dinner together".

He added "Is this a date? Are we on a date now? I would have bought you something better than rice and beans."

And he caused her to blush when he pointed out that the 25-year-old has "a couple of little freckles".

Asking Nadia if she had a specific type of man, she replied: "I want someone to enhance my life."

Show insiders have been quoted saying that they want to spice things up following the early departures of The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins and actor Craig Charles.

Collins quit after three days in the jungle, while Charles left following the sudden death of his older brother Dean.
