    I’m A Celebrity… South Africa star Fatima Whitbread left fans scratching their heads when she made quite the mistake during a gruelling Bushtucker trial.

    During Friday’s visit to ITV camp, hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly welcomed viewers back for the grand final of the All Star series.

    In the jam-packed episode, ex-campmates selected Myleene Klass, Jordan Banjo and the award-winning Olympian to go through to the grand final.

    But the trio weren’t given enough time to celebrate their success before the Geordie duo introduced them to their next Bushtucker trial to see who would go through to the final round.

    For the penultimate challenge, the group were tasked with counting to six minutes while they were covered in critters.

    The finalists had to sit in a contraption that had their feet in a box filled with ants, their hands in a box filled with cockroaches and a helmet filled with snakes.

    They were asked to hit the buzzer when they thought six minutes had passed with the two contestants closest to the six-minute mark granted access to the final.

    As the trial got underway, fans flooded to Twitter to cheer on their favourite finalist, with Jordan the first to press his buzzer at just six minutes and thirty seconds.

    Myleene was the second star to press her buzzer at 11 minutes and as she bravely sat with four snakes slithering around her face.

    But what surprised fans the most was Fatima’s unusual time keeping, who finally pressed her buzzer at 15 minutes and three seconds.

    After the trial the comedy duo couldn't help but grill the star about her slow counting, which she claimed she'd based on her morning run on the treadmill.

    However, the mum-of-one quickly clarified that she had over compensated by a few minutes in the heat of it.

    Fans quickly flooded to Twitter to share their confusion online, as one user chuckled: "Fatima's counting has proper got me. Surely just guessing would have been better #ImACeleb."

    Another asked: "Did Fatima think there were 100 seconds in a minute? #ImACeleb" as a third added: "Watching Fatima in that trial, did she have a malfunction? #ImACeleb."

    Meanwhile others hinted that it could have been an effort to get more screen time on the show.

    A fourth account asked: "Gutted Fatima is gone. The rules should have been which two could stay the longest in that trial #ImACeleb" as another pointed out: "Fatima not getting an exit interview? #ImACeleb."
