She’s already had to face her fears this week; getting up, close and personal with spiders during a live TV challenge.
But despite her feisty attitude, surprisingly the one thing brought Ferne McCann, 26, to tears on Friday’s This Morning was the world’s hottest chilli.
Taking on the Caroline Reaper live on daytime TV, the former TOWIE star maintained her composure at first before the heat kicked in, causing her to break down in tears on air.
Left visibly shaken by the challenge, the TV personality was tended to Gary the paramedic as she struggled to cope with the potentially dangerous task.
Facing off against chef Leon Ockendon in the chilli challenge, the beauty set out to successfully taste eight of the world’s hottest peppers.
Starting off slow, Ferne tried the padron pepper, ranked eighth on the list, before nibbling on the orange habanero and then the dorset naga – which proved nearly too much for the stunner as she began to cry.
Stuffing her mouth with bread, Ferne choked up as the pepper instantly hit the back of her throat with vengeance.
Attempting to keep her tears at bay, it soon became apparent the fiery pepper was causing her pain.
She shrieked: ‘It’s really hot’.
Taking a number of deep breaths while digesting the devilish vegetable, Ferne’s plight was too much that she had to call on Gary the paramedic to give her a large glass of milk to alleviate the burn.
However when it came to trying the Caroline Reaper, the TV presenter tried her best to keep her poker face.
Getting over the initial burn, Ferne looked joyous as she triumphantly swallowed the pepper.
Not for the faint-hearted, the Carolina holds the Guinness World Record as the hottest chilli in the world – ranking at 2.5 million Scoville units.
Ferne’s competitor Leon only managed to try the Dorsey Naga before he tapped out of the competition.
Going head to head with the TV chef, Ferne declared ‘I need to win this’, before she took on the Reaper and brought home the Golden Chilli trophy.
This is the latest in a line of challenges Ferne has had to tackle – having come face-to-face with spiders earlier this week.
Dressed a giant spiders, the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star initially put on a brave face.
However, it wasn’t long until she started hyperventilating and screaming while holding a spider in her hands.
‘It looks like an olive! I wouldn’t eat this spider though’, the former TOWIE star joked.
