Anne Hegerty Had I'm A Celebrity Viewers Crying With Her Last Night
Anne Hegerty had I'm A Celebrity fans in tears last night as she welled up with emotion before leaving her campmates to head out for the Bushtucker Trial.
Show hosts Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly broke the news to The Chase star that she had been nominated by viewers to take on Monstrous Monoliths, but when push came to shove it all seemed a little too much for Anne.
As she waited to be taken to the challenge - and potentially leave her new campmates at Snake Rock if she won - Anne could be seen wiping away tears in heartbreaking scenes.
Fleur East reassured Anne that she'd be okay in the new camp as Emily Atack, who she'd already lived with for a couple of days, would be there too.
Viewers at home were just as overcome with emotion as Anne, and took to Twitter to spur her on.
"Anne deserves the whole world. Seeing her cry on national telly is a heartbreaking sight," declared one I'm A Celeb fan.
Another tweeted: "I just love Anne, don't want to see her cry come on gal u can do it #ImACeleb."
"Seeing Anne cry breaks my heart! We love you Anne! Keep strong!" exclaimed somebody else.
While a fourth viewer shared: "Everytime I watch Anne on @imacelebrity I could cry and I don't know why she's done something to me, so much respect for that women I love her."
Oh Anne don't cry!! You have got this @imacelebrity #AnneHegerty #ImACeleb

After an impressive start to last night's Bushtucker Trial in which she retrieved two gold stars, Anne called time on the challenge in the second round.
While the Governess could cope with having green slime and fish guts poured over her head as she tried to unlock padlocks, thousands of creepy crawlies and bugs were one step too far.
As the stopwatch clocked two minutes, Anne declared: "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here!" putting a stop to the challenge and she headed back to Snake Rock.
I'm A Celebrity continues at 9pm on ITV tonight.
