I’m A Celebrity 2019: Richard Reid Faces Another Of His Greatest Fears… In Speedos

Richard Reid continues to prove just what he’s made of, facing more of his fears in another terrifying trial, and making a fashion statement at the same time.

Just days after Jacqui Lambie picked Justin to head down to the depths of Bogged Down -- a sewer system full of some of the jungle’s finest, Richard was back again this time with Luke Jacobz as they prepared to get into Deep Trouble.

Both Richard and Luke would be chained up, with several padlocks around their bodies, and standing in large tanks that would rapidly fill up with water, snakes, crocs and fish.

But that wasn’t the only thing being dropped into the tanks. Keys to unlock the padlocks would be dropped into the opposite tank, and the pair would need to work together to find the right keys for their partner.

The pair only had the time it would take for the tanks to fill with water to free themselves, earning half a star for each lock they freed themselves from.

It’s another trial where Richard would have to face several of his fears -- enclosed spaces, being buried alive and snakes.

Not only that, but he did so in a striking pair of speedos.

Luke and a visibly shaken Richard managed to get a total of four and a half stars, despite having to be released from the tanks once they ran out of breathing room.

“You can’t scream under water!” Richard said after the trial.

But following the trial, the Hollywood insider was an absolute champ jokingly saying, “Being locked up like that? Just another Tuesday for me.”
