CELEBRITY chef Gino D'Acampo has taken a break from his Radlett food supply business to face up to his fears in the Australian jungle.
The Italian-born chef held a water spider in his mouth for 30 seconds as part of his first bush-tucker trial in the hit ITV show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! which kicked off last night (Sunday).
Gino, who owns Italian ingredient supply company Bont� Italia in Aldenham Road, Radlett, also had to submerse his face in a tank of water worms and keep his head in a plastic helmet filled with spiders.
He spent a night on an island with fellow contestant Samantha Fox, former glamour girl and pop star, after they both drew the short straws and started their challenge a day earlier than the other celebs.
