TEARS, tantrums and too much baby talk - just another day in the jungle for Bachelor whinger Keira Maguire.

The 30-year-old took on her second Tucker Trial since entering the South African jungle camp on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! alongside former Playschool presenter Jay Laga'aia.

"It was just like having a five-year-old,” father of eight Laga'aia said. "It was unbelievable. (she said) I don't want to do this, I don't want to do that.”

The duo were charged with completing the Bad Pitt challenge, where Maguire was suspended over a round tank of snakes as Laga'aia guided her to stars in thatched bee hives filled with critters.

They achieved nine from 12 stars, equalling extra meals for campmates including Steve Price, Casey Donovan, Lisa Curry and Tziporah Malkah.

"She (Keira) didn't listen to any of the instructions and cried. I wasn't too sympathetic,” Laga'aia said, fed up with the reality star. "I said, 'cry later, play now'. Don't put me in another challenge with her because I can't be nice again.”

Maguire was proud of herself after being bitten by a termite and copping a hedgehog prick to her finger.

"I obviously feel like I've earned my place in the camp now,” she declared.

The other 11 campmates have been in the jungle for nearly three weeks and will remain there until another three weeks competing in various challenges and living off basic rations of beans and rice with the aim of winning $100,000 for their chosen charities.

Despite her confidence, Maguire has rubbed everyone up the wrong way in her first two days in camp and refused to clean the long and short drop toilet.

"I don't think a woman should be doing that job,” she said, former Olympian Lisa Curry chiming in: "If Keira is going to s**t in it, she shouldn't expect anyone else to do it.”

Model Kris Smith also has no interest in Maguire, who prior to going into the jungle said she would do her best to "have a crack” at him.

"She thinks we are best mates and I don't really know her at all,” he said, having previously told AFL legend Dane Swan he would quit the show if she hit on him.

Meanwhile, Maguire didn't do herself any favours fitting in when she was busted by producers with contraband of biltong and an eyebrow brush.

"What does contraband mean?” she said. "I don't know what they're talking about.”

It hasn't all been negative with Maguire bonding with former model Tziporah Malkah.

The second celebrity will be eliminated from the jungle on Sunday night, when the celebrities will take on the Wheel of Fortune Tucker Trial as a group challenge.
