Pat Sharp and Sinitta have made their entrance into the jungle for 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'
Prior to making their way to join the other contestants at the base camp, the newcomers had to spend the night together in a secluded cave - joined by a whole host of gruesome critters and creepy crawlies - in the hope of winning luxury items for their fellow campmates.
However, the challenge didn't get off to a good start due to the 80s pop icon's fear of insects, and Sinitta ended up spending the whole night crying in the cave, while Pat snored soundly in the corner.
Emerging the following morning, she said: "I moved into a hotel once because there was a spider in the bath.
"Thank God for Pat because being together in that awful situation brought us closer together and he's a lovely man."
The pair were then directed in opposite directions to their respective camps with Pat joining the gang - including Mark Wright and Antony Cotton - in Croc Creek and Sinitta receiving a warm welcome from the likes of Dougie Poynter and Stefanie Powers in Snake Rock.
Despite being keen to integrate herself into the group, Sinitta continued to be terrified by every single bug she encountered in the jungle, much to the amusement of her fellow campmates.
Speaking in the Bush Telegraph, she said: "They all got to witness how bad my phobia is."
