One of the standout moments so far, was when the star fainted live on air after being tasked with another extreme challenge.

Gillian revealed that having to perform tasks, including eating live bugs, swimming through contaminated water and being buried underground, has caused her to suffer from PTSD.

“What happened was, every time I had to go into a small space like an elevator, I felt like I was going to scream,” she told the Daily Star.

She explains: “I felt a surge of panic that I couldn’t control, so if I tried to get into a small elevator – or any elevator, to be honest – I can’t do it,” she explained.
