I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

I’m A Celeb’s Jess Eva has been rushed to hospital thanks to a horrifying ordeal with bugs in her ears

Reality TV or the plot for a horror movie?

By Maddison Hockey
We've seen our favourite I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestants endure some of the most shocking challenges this year involving deadly animals, vile "food" concoctions and various sorts of horrors.
When each challenge is over, however, they (and frankly, we) can take a big sigh of relief.
That isn't quite the case for contestant Jess Eva who is living out what can only be described as our worst nightmare.
The former Block star has been documenting the horrifying ordeal of having bugs stuck in her ears for a number of weeks now.
But this morning things took a dire turn with the reality star being rushed to hospital due to "insufferable" pain.
Her radio co-host Lawrence Mooney broke the news on air after Jess failed to show up for work.

"If you've been following Jess in the jungle, she was talking about having bugs in her ears and then had those syringed out by a doctor and there was some pupae or larvae in there and fully grown bugs, so she had quite a menagerie in her ears," he explained to listeners.
"That situation has become critical and she is now on morphine because the pain has become insufferable overnight."

Jess previously told listeners on the show that the ordeal had begun while on I'm A Celeb and believed it originated from swimming in the "manky" lake.
"When I was in the jungle my ears started to hurt and I went to the medic a bit and then over time it got worse and worse to the point where I couldn't sleep, there was so much pain," she recounted.
"I reckon I lost about 30-40 per cent of my hearing on Monday/Tuesday. I could hear ringing and a lot of pressure, so obviously what was in there was already dead, but it was getting worse and worse."
The horror only continued for the campmate. (Channel Ten)
Unfortunately for Jess the horrifying incident was far from over. As it turns out, the doctors only managed to get the bug's wings out of her ears and not the bugs themselves.
Cue more cringing in horror.
"After increased ear pain over the last week, I went back to the doctor today. She said she'll wash them out again," Jess shared just five days ago.
"When she started to wash them out I heard a huge, 'OH MY GOD! What is that!' On further inspection these huge, slimy, weird things were some sort of creature.
"'I think we just got the wings last time,' the doctor said! The doctor also said the antibiotic drops I was using must have freed the little buggers up!"
