I’m A Celeb’s Mike Tindall rugby tackles Matt Hancock in Celebrity Cyclone Trial

Tonight's I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! has seen the return of the fan favourite Celebrity Cyclone Trial, with all four of the final celebs taking part.

Announcing the iconic Trial, host Dec explained: “Your job is to get the four stars onto the four star markers and keep them there until the end of the Trial.

"To begin, the first celebrity will step off the twister, through the trench with all four stars and make their way to the first star marker.”

Co-host Ant added: "Once they’re there with their stars, the second celebrity jumps off the twister, through the trench, gets to the first star marker, takes three stars and then moves on to the second star marker.

"And so on and so on. You know how it works. All of the stars have to be on the star markers at the end of time to count. You’ve got 10 minutes to do the Trial."

The order the celebrities would face the cyclone was decided, with Jill Scott going first, followed by Matt Hancock.

Matt shocked everyone by diving into the first plunge pool. He then strode confidently up the course, but he then dropped a star and on his return was pelted by yoga balls and water. He then dropped another star so had to repeat his journey.

It was then Mike Tindall's turn, with the rugby player turned Royal Family member leaving viewers in stitches as he proceeded to rugby tackle former Health Secretary Matt.

To which host Ant joked: "Oooh! That's got to hurt, hasn't it?" with Dec adding: "That took him by surprise I think!"

Speaking after the Trial, Matt said: "I just thought, walk straight up the middle…. Give the people what they want, a big target and they loved it. And then I got landed on by Mike Tindall."

Viewers at home were quick to take to social media to share that they'd been left in stitches at the tackle.

One asked: "Did Mike just rugby tackle Matt?" followed by a string of laughing emojis.

While a different fan posted: "Mike launching himself on top of Matt during the cyclone is the highlight of this season, absolutely hilarious."

It comes as later in the episode, Mike had an emotional reunion with wife Zara on Saturday's episode of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

During the latest episode, Mike, 44, became the latest star to be eliminated as the final three were revealed as Matt Hancock, Jill Scott, and Owen Warner.

After an exit interview with hosts Ant and Dec the presenters said: "Zara is waiting for you so all that is left for us to say is Mike Tindall you are a celebrity, get yourself out of here!"

Mike then made his way over the iconic bridge as wife Zara, who is the late Queen's granddaughter, sweetly ran to greet him with the two sharing a sweet hug.
