John Barrowman eats an enormous penis on I’m A Celebrity
John Barrowman ate a giant penis in his final I’m A Celebrity trial.
The Doctor Who and Arrow star had made it to the December 9 final of the ITV reality contest, but got a special surprise in his final Bushtucker Trial challenge.
The actor was told he would be presented with five traditionally-gross jungle dishes to consume.
“This is the one I’ve always dreamed about doing.”

He said of the trial: “There’s no question, I’ve come this far I’m not going to say no to anything now and this is the one I’ve always dreamed about doing.”
Barrowman was forced to eat worms, spiders, goat’s eyes and fermented duck eggs as part of the task, before the final dish—a giant bull’s penis.
The star seemed thrilled when the massive penis was presented to him, telling hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby: “‘I knew you were going to give me a penis! I hate you, you evil people, go away!”
The actor appeared to struggle to get the penis down, bending over as he attempted to chew it.
However, he eventually swallowed, netting full marks on the trial.
All that effort didn’t do enough to win Barrowman the trophy, however, as he ended up in third place during the show’s finale.
Barrowman said the penis was not the worst-tasting thing, adding: “Taste wise, the fermented egg, the hardest to eat was the spider because it exploded.”
The star took the bronze medal behind King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp and runner-upEmily Atack.
John Barrowman had joked about his penis-eating dreams
The trial was a case of ‘be careful what you wish for,’ as Barrowman had joked about his genitalia-eating hopes on the way into the jungle.
Of his appearance on the show, he quipped: “Eating bums, balls and willies, I’m totally cool with.”
“I will do my damnedest in challenges so that we’re not, any of us, hangry. If somebody is not motivated to get those stars, I might be unforgiving.”
John Barrowman wanted ‘gender neutral’ title if he won
Barrowman had said he would want a gender neutral title if he won the I’m A Celebrity crown.
“I would be over the moon if I won. I would be the King or Queen of the Jungle,” he said, before adding: “I want both crowns.”
Barrowman, who is openly gay, rose to fame on TV shows including Doctor Who, Torchwood and Arrow.
As well as being a renowned actor, Barrowman is also a singer, presenter and author.
