I'm A Celebrity 2019: Tahir Bilgic's Time In The Jungle Comes To An End
It was no laughing matter when the comedian was the latest celeb to bid the camp farewell.
Tahir admitted to 10 daily before heading into the jungle that he had no interest in camping because “they invented hotels”. When he became part of the caretakers however, something must have taken over as he and his crew became a solid team who all seemed to love getting down and dirty with camp chores.
Tahir also kept the camp entertained with his playful antics, pranks and terrible, TERRIBLE violin playing. The Fat Pizza star brought the instrument in as his luxury item despite not knowing how to play it. His campmates were… less than thrilled.
And while he kept the other celebs and us at home laughing, he also allowed us to see a different, more vulnerable side to him. Speaking to Luke Jacobz about losing his father only a few months ago, Tahir broke down -- saying it was then he realised the importance of leaving nothing unsaid between loved ones.
He also showed off his Tucker Trial talents, completing (and winning) the first Sunday Slam against Justin Lacko. He was slightly less successful when he and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katherine Kelly Lang tried their hand at the memory game Scrotal Recall.
And from fearing the kitchen to becoming head chef, Tahir embraced his new role in the only way he knew how: by taking the piss the entire time. Torturing the other celebs with comedy routines while the rice and beans were on the boil, Tahir actually flexed his culinary chops, whipping up meals for the entire camp.
Just don’t bring him any coriander.
While his campmates are certainly sad to see the funnyman leave the camp, they’re probably quietly glad it means the end of his violin solos.
