Hugo Taylor had a "terrible" initial experience in the Australian jungle while starring on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' and he was so hungry on the show he resorted to trying to kill a wild turkey for food
Hugo Taylor experienced the "lowest night" of his life on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
The former 'Made in Chelsea' star had a "terrible" initial experience while staying in the Australian jungle, and the 26-year-old hunk was so hungry at times he and David Haye resorted to trying to kill a wild turkey by throwing boulders at its head before show bosses stepped in.
Hugo - who was voted off the ITV1 show on Wednesday (28.11.12) - said: "The first night - when we had to sleep in an infested field - was the lowest night of my entire life. No one knows how terrible it was.
"I wrapped a bandanna around my whole face because the moment you opened your mouth it was full of bugs. I sealed up my hoodie but they were still down my back.
"Living off 70g of rice a day - about three mouthfuls - is almost impossible and when Helen Flanagan wasn't winning any stars that made it very, very hard.
"We had this turkey in the camp that acted as our Hoover - he would have all the beans off the floor. I tried to kill it once because I was so hungry.
"David Haye and I both tried to throw boulders at its head but we missed. Then a voice came over saying, 'Guys, that is an endangered species. Can you please not kill it.'
"I was saying to the others, 'I don't care. I'm so hungry that I'm willing to eat this turkey right now. It is either that or cannibalism'."
Hugo missed his girlfriend and former 'Made in Chelsea' co-star Natalie Joel - who he plans to marry "soon" - so much while on the show he used to have imaginary conversations with her in the jungle.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "When you're in the jungle your mind wanders.
"It takes you back home and you're sitting in a room with them having an imaginary conversation about how their day has been.
"I've never been so pleased to be reunited with anybody in my whole life."
