The nation was gripped tonight as Gillian Mckeith collapsed live on air after being told that she’d been voted to undergo the Live Trial.

And as Bob rushed to her side once again with the oxygen, we watched, mouths agape, wondering what on earth would happen next.

As if we weren’t teetering on the edges of our sofas already! Nigel had just been coaxed out of the Bush after refusing to receive an electric shock in Kangaroo Court, and so by the time the Live Trial crept up on us, the tension was almost too much to bear.

And as Ant and Dec delivered the vote results and she stepped out into the clearing, it seemed that it all had all become too much for Gillian.

By the time we came back from the ad break however, Medic Bob had confirmed that Gillian was ok, and the Live Trial continued…

But who would take on The Unfairground?

Cue Linford – who with the second highest vote. And man, was he up for it!

Like a coiled spring he leapt around the challenges – nailing Strike It Unlucky and the Terrifying Tombola as if they were just walks in the park, and bringing home all but one star for his ecstatic campmates.

As Ant and Dec looked on in amazement and Linford’s fellow celebs in the stands hollered and whooped.
