Camp mates taking part in ITV's I'm A Celebrity reality show have been seen praying together.

On Monday night's programme, viewers saw quiz supremo Anne Hegerty offer to spend time in silent prayer for actress Emily Atack.

She'd been voted by the public to take part in a challenge which would see her locked in a box with more than 50 snakes.


Offering prayer, Hegerty said: "Shall I spend 20 minute silently saying a rosary that everything will go OK?

Atack replied "I would love that" and was then seen giving the sign of the cross before sitting down to pray.

Speaking to the camera later, Hegerty further explained what she was doing: "I was offering up prayers for Emily that she's going to be OK and she's not going to freak out".

Singer Fluer East also joined in. Speaking to the camera, she said: "I was praying please keep Emily safe. It was really nice and I think she needed that. A bit of calm.


Atack successfully completed her trial winning nine meals for her fellow camp mates.

She was later told she had broken a Jungle record as the trial she had just completed had the most snakes ever in I'm A Celebrity history.
