I'm A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here! campmates played a mean trick on newcomer Ruthie Henshall in tonight's recap show.

The musical theatre actress and singer, 53, was a late arrival in the camp earlier this week.

In the nightime, Shane Richie asked the unsuspecting Ruthie to turn the light switches off in the camp, but for an unsuspecting Ruthie there was a twist to this.

Shane said in the Telegraph: "Thing is right, I asked Ruthie to turn the light switches off so we could go to sleep, but what she doesn't know is there are no light switches."

We then saw Ruthie struggle to find the non-existent light switches as Shane and the other campmates giggled away amongst themselves.

Shane was then heard giving Ruthie false directions to the switches as she responded and carried on her search.

An exasperated Ruthie returned and asked: "Are you taking the p**s?"

The actress then burst out laughing as she realised she had been well and truly had.

The moment comes as viewers have already seen Ruthie enlighten her campmates with tales of her past relationship with Prince Edward, who she dated for five years in the 1990s.

Speaking to fellow stage star Shane, a cheeky Ruthie said: "You performed in Buckingham Palace, you sang in the gardens, I s****ed in the bedrooms."

Discussing the Queen's youngest son, Ruthie continued: "Lovely bloke. And I genuinely fell in love with him."

"He was a production assistant at Andrew Lloyd Webber's. And he then called me himself (Edward) and he wanted me to play the lead in A Star Is Born.

"And Edward was my point of contact. He was the one who'd call me up and say you're rehearsing at 2 o'clock or whatever.

"And he said to me would you like to come to mine and watch the film of A Star Is Born with me and you can have some dinner."

She added: "I was like 'what, at the Palace, is that where you live?'."
