Hollyoaks' Explosive Train Wreck And Shocking Fight Scene Breaches Ofcom Rules


Hollyoaks

Say what you like about Hollyoaks, but when it comes to providing a double whammy of death and violence just in time for dinner, there really is no other show out there like it. The trouble is, this death and destruction has landed the show in a heap of destruction, as the over-the-top scenes have breached tele rules set by Ofcom, who have determined that the show crossed a line when it aired the bloody episode in March this year.

Gemma And J Take Terror Train


Gemma Atkinson Ant Mcpartlin Hollyoaks I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Janice Dickinson Anna Ryder Richardson Christopher Biggins

Gemma Atkinson and Jason 'J' Brown endured a frightening encounter with a host of unsavoury jungle residents on the new series of I'm a celebrity...

The former Hollyoaks actress and the ex-boyband member were face to face with cockroaches, ants, meal worms and eel slime during the Terror Train and the Temple of Doom Bushtucker Trial, but endured the unpleasant Antipodean visitors to earn three meals for the camp.

Presenter Ant Mcpartlin told the pair that six stars were fixed inside the Temple of Doom, into which they would travel.

"You've got to go in search of them," he explained. "Sit in the cart and then the cart with move through. It will stop four times - when it stops, the star will fall from the ceiling along with some other jungle nastiness," said Ant.

"You have 30 seconds to secure your star before the cart moves again. This happens four times and the final two you find at the end, they're not going to drop, they will be hanging there so feel around for them."

Before the trial began, 'J' reassured Gemma, saying: "When it happens don't think about it, just grab the stars.

"It's going to be nasty - there are going to be things crawling all over us Gemma, are you ready?" he asked.

A bucket of eel slime soon cascaded over Gemma, before a cockroach shower left her screaming: "It's down my top, it's eating me, aaagh! It's nipping my back, the b**tard."

While 'J' was unable to find the star protected by a nest of green ants, Gemma ignored a shower of meal worms to grab a third star, securing a third meal for the contestants.

Back at the camp the contestants joked about a Cerys Matthews-Marc Bannerman wedding, and Janice Dickinson, Anna Ryder Richardson and Christopher Biggins all received special messages from their loved ones.
