It comes 11 years after Olympic gold medallist Fatima Whitbread famously got a cockroach stuck up her nose after enduring a time-trial wearing a plastic helmet full of critters on the ITV reality show.

McPartlin, 46, joked: “Jill, that was bigger than the one Fatima Whitbread had up her nose!”

Meanwhile on the Critter Carousel, Tindall collected the balls and threw them at Warner, who was being repeatedly turned upside down over a trough of water.
