Pete Wicks has endured an emotionally scarring adventure on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.
And now it’s about to get even worse!
The Only Way is Essex star was left distraught when a pig that he had tried to save was accidentally killed. Pete was against killing the pig, who he named Colin, for food.
However, after tieing the pig to a tree outside of the camp to temporarily stop it from plodding back, Colin got tangled in the twine and was strangled.
What could make Pete fall out of love with nature even more? How about a shark attack?
When is the Celebrity Island Shark Attack?
The shark attack is coming up in the next episode.
This is episode 5 in series 3 and the last of the season.
You can catch Pete Wicks’s encounter with the shark on Sunday, October 8th, at 9 pm on Channel 4.

Pete Wicks and the Shark
The 29-year old is bitten by a shark while he is swimming in the open water and desperately calls for help as the shark latches on to his finger.
Pete is the main fisherman of the group, enjoying the spear hunting duties alongside close friend James Cracknell.
However, on this occasion, the fishing trip goes more Pete Tong than it does Pete Wicks.
A source told OK Magazine:
Pete and the rest of the Islanders were checking their fishing nets when he was attacked by the shark. It just came out of nowhere and bit his hand.
It was terrifying – there was blood everywhere and everyone was panicking and trying to run out of the water.”
Channel 4 reported that a medical team on the island were rushed in to fix Pete up. No serious injuries were inflicted.
