Tears and drama galore as the first Celebrity Treasure Island trailer is released

Who was backstabbed and who was brought to tears?

TVNZ have just dropped the first trailer for Celebrity Treasure Island and boy, it's shaping up to be a cracker. Tears. Drama. Backstabbing. And plenty of bikinis and slow motion shots.
After the first highly produced promotional ad was released last week - packed full of sex appeal - we now get a proper taste of what's to come in the series with the voiceover promising "it's going to get dirty" and "brutal."
With 16 celebrities competing for $100,000 in cash for charity, by the looks of this trailer not everyone is playing nice. "Is this dude playing us?" asks Ladi 6. While Jodi Rimmer promises "s**t's gonna go down."
And clearly the stress and drama has taken a toll on TVNZ weatherman Matty McLean, who is pictured in tears declaring "I don't need to prove myself to Barbara Kendall."
Matty's tearful moment.
Matty's Breakfast colleagues even poked fun at him, posting the trailer to their Facebook page saying "Here's your first look at Celebrity Treasure Island starring our very own Matty McLean - and he's already crying!"
It's not Matty's first time crying on TV. Last year he adorably cried on Breakfast speaking about The Lion King.
Athena Angelou was also brought to tears.
