Essex, who has previously stunned viewers by saying that he does not know how to blow his nose or read the time, came face to face with the stick insects during the Dingo Dollar Challenge.

"I've never seen one of those in my life, it actually looks like a stick, it's a ringer if you compared it to some sticks, you'd never tell the difference," Essex told Olympic star Rebecca Adlington.

"It is a stick with legs that moves and now I've seen two of them it's like stick insect city here."
