Pritchard and Farah were voted off the 20th season of the hit reality series, just one day after the previous night’s shock double eviction saw actor Jessica Plummer and singer Russell Watson booted from Gwrych castle.
Last night’s episode saw Plummer (who has since left the series) and Pritchard take on the Castle Coin challenge, winning Pritchard, Jordan North and Giovanna Fletcher their treats from home. The snacks included a Kinder Bueno bar for North and two chocolate hobnob biscuits for Fletcher.
Then, Pritchard and Farah took on their last-ever Bushtucker Trial. Ominously named Game of Groans, the task at hand saw the two celebrities attempting to memorise a board of symbols while sitting strapped to chairs on a spinning platform. All the while the two stars were showered with cockroaches, maggots and mealworms released from a vent overhead. Pritchard and Farah won three out of the six stars available.
Speaking to Ant and Dec after the eviction, Pritchard reflected on his time in the castle fondly. He said: “You don’t know what to expect after watching the show as a superfan, but it’s been so much better.”
When asked what Farah will miss the most about I’m a Celebrity, the Olympic athlete told the hosts: “I’ll miss having a laugh together.”
“I watched this show over the years and all I wanted to do is challenge myself,” he said before joking: “I know I can run.”
Farah added: “It’s been an amazing journey. I would not change one thing.”
I’m a Celebrity continues at 9pm on Thursday night on ITV.
