We had snappy lobsters, custard, muck, a wall-papering contest, the make and model challenge where bedsheets were transformed into party outfits and finally the offal dish!!

Show-jumper Jessica Kurten has qualified for the Grand Final of Charity ICA Bootcamp. Jessica will now face the public vote for the grand title of Charity ICA Bootcamp Recruit of the Year 2011.

By getting into the final Jessica has secured MS Ireland €20,000 and more will come through the proceeds from the voting in the live finals. Jessica is raising money for the Friends of the MS Care Centre appeal, which will help fund essential repairs and maintenance in the only respite and therapy centre for people with MS in Ireland.

The live finals will be presented by Blaithnaid Ní Chófaigh, the final week of ICA Bootcamp will unfold over three live episodes on the 16th, 17th and 20th of August at 9:30pm on RTÉ One.
