Carol Vorderman fights tears as she’s forced to pull out of trial

Carol Vorderman tearful after not attempting I’m A Celeb trial

Carol Vorderman was forced to pull out of a trial during Tuesday’s I’m A Celebrity…South Africa after she opened up about her phobia of drowning.

The fearless TV presenter took on the trial along with Fatima Whitbread, however, things got a bit too much for Carol.

The former Countdown star broke down in tears as she told hosts Ant and Dec she could no longer continue with the challenge.

After getting seven stars for camp, Carol admitted she had a fear of drowning after having to submerge her head into water to retrieve the stars.

Her co-stars also noticed the difference in Carol when she returned to camp with Fatima.

“I have this real fear of drowning,” Carol said to Fatima during the trial. “It is my ultimate fear.”

“You won’t if you put your head up,” Fatima reassured. “You have got enough room to put your head up.”

“I am not going to do it,” Carol continued as Ant asked: “You’re not going to do it, Carol?”

The This Morning star hesitated before Dec echoed: “Five seconds left. You done?”

“I am done,” she admitted before being pulled out of the tank of water.

When speaking to the hosts afterwards, Carol got tearful as she said: “I am sorry, I might even cry, my one fear is drowning,

“I could see a snake in the breathing hole, I went through and I couldn’t get a breath.”

“I am sorry,” she repeated as Carol got choked up.

When speaking with Fatima after the challenge, Carol got visibly upset again when talking about it.

“It’s the only time I have been like this about a phobia my whole life,” Carol sobbed.

She later added: “I don’t want to tell anybody in camp that I’ve been sobbing really because then you have to go on about it.”

The duo bounced in to camp to tell their fellow campmates about their trial, although, Myleene Klass and Jordan Banjo noticed Carol wasn’t her usual happy self.

I’m A Celebrity … South Africa airs weekdays at 9pm on ITV.
