With the gentle shake of their feet, former Ironwoman and Olympian Lisa Curry woke two celebrities from their fitful slumber on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and led them through a brutal, 40 minute workout.
Not one to let severe fatigue and undernourishment interfere with her workout regime, Curry found a patch of dirt and a giant rock and put comedian Mazeem Hussain and singer/actress Natalie Bassingthwaite through their paces.

Hussain had agreed to work out but regretted it the next morning when Curry came calling. “She said it will make you feel really good, you’re going to feel so great and when you’re a grandfather you’re going to be really fit and healthy.”
The Celebrity Circuit Training Session saw Hussain doing push-ups while Bassingthwaite executed burning squats and Curry grabbed hold of a large African rock to lift.
“And then she put me through, like 40 minutes of torture,” Hussain later said. “I’ve got nothing in my stomach, and I’m burning – I don’t even know what I’m burning. I’ve got no fat. I’m just burning body.”
"Do you know how hard it is working out with an ex-Olympian? She's just, she's a machine."
Then he added, "But you know what, I appreciate it, I know it was the right thing to do, it's all good for you but, I've gotta think of an excuse to get out of it tomorrow."
If this dedicated trio can work out in less-than-idea conditions in the African jungle, what's our excuse? Here's a handy guide to the I'm A Celebrity, Celebrity Workout.
Now drop and give me 20.
