I’m A Celebrity fans were left fuming on Tuesday night when Beverly Callard revealed she was vegan moments before the eating trial took place.
The All Star Family Fortunes presenter was joined by radio host Jordan North and Coronation Street legend Beverley Callard. However, Bev revealed she was a vegan moments before the trial began which left some viewers fuming.
Traditionally, the stomach-churning trial involves eating an array of animal parts including fish eyes and pig anus. But due to her dietary restrictions, Bev was served plates of fermented fruit, vegetables and tofu.
This didn’t sit well with fans who took to Twitter to question if it was ‘fair’ for the actress to take part.
One wrote: "They definitely should have told us Bev is bloody vegan before we voted for this trial. Fermented plums? Scraping barrel there."
Another added: "I feel cheated!!! Bev is a vegan? So she’s gonna eat veg when the others eat testicles??"
To make matters worse, halfway through the trial, Beverly revealed she’s ‘only been vegan since March,’ which led to fans accusing her of changing her dietary requirements to get out of eating animal parts on the show. (Genius, if you ask us!)
One wrote: “Celebrity life hack:
“If you ever find yourself in the jungle just say you’re a vegan and you’ll get a slightly easier run on the eating trials.
“What are the producers gonna do, ask for proof?”
Another added: “I reckon Beverley Collard is about as vegan as Pamela Shipman!
“Great way of getting out of eating brains and b*******s though!”
