Stephen K Amos narrowly escapes drowning on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia

UK comedian Stephen K Amos experienced a terrifying moment on Sunday night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! Australia. 

In an exclusive clip released before the episode aired, the English comedian, 56, was shown almost drowning in the waterhole near the celebrity camp in South Africa.

While several of his celebrity contestants relaxed in the deeper water beneath the waterfall, Stephen remains on a pontoon in the shallower area.

‘He told me on day one when we arrived here that he does not swim, and will not swim,’ says former Frankie Muniz in a cutaway.

But when Amos decides to pluck up the courage to try the deeper water, he begins to struggle.

The comedian splashes and attempts to tread water, but in a terrifying moment, his head slips under water and he is unable to rise for air. 

However, iron-woman and surf life saver Candice Warner is quick to render aid, with the help of the other celebrities.

‘I literally panicked. However, I couldn’t shout anything out,’ Stephen later says in his confessional about the incident.

‘I was panicking inside, and thankfully, they saw in my eyes the sheer panic, and Candice quickly swam over to me, grabbed me by the arm, and took me safely back to the pontoon,’ he added.

The funnyman has previously referred to himself as a ‘non-swimmer’ in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald in 2015.

Amos said at the time that despite often visiting Australia, he won’t even dip his toe into the ocean.

‘If I’m panicking about swimming I’m not going to add to that the possibility of having to punch a jellyfish on the nose,’ he quipped.

Amos was last week joined in the jungle by MasterChef Australia star Khanh Ong.
