Next the first camp challenge The Water Run - for the winners camp chairs, tent lights, pillows and torches - losers are on the ground and in the dark! Next its time to build the leaning tower of pizza - the prize being of course FOOD with the winning team getting the tea time treat , whilst the losers are on rations. Then its time to light the camp fire ..... but the night isn't over yet - hot chocolate, marshmallows and treats for round the campfire? Well you have to earn them and find the Celebrity Chest in the "jungle" - watch out though you may not be alone in there, and lets hope your team get the question right after all your hard work! And finally this unique experience would not be complete without the Bug Feast Bush Tucker Trial. Could you stomach the BBQ Grasshoppers and Ant Crackers? If so your team is in for a breakfast treat delivered to camp in the morning - if not they are on rations. Check out our photo gallery to see the fun.
