Celebrities have often had to eat animal parts during some of the trials with Katie Price and Kim Woodburn memorably chowing down on fish eyes, cockroaches and a kangaroo testicle in the 2009 series.

Last year's show reportedly saw more than 13,000 complaints over the use of animals with the RSPCA saying they are 'concerned' with the way I'm A Celebrity 'portrays' animals.

'We are also concerned at the way the programme portrays animals; it risks trivialising their lives for the sake of light 'entertainment'.

'With people discussing how scared they are, and animals portrayed in such a negative light, this programme is a long way from the RSPCA's vision of a world where all animals are respected and treated with kindness and compassion.

'And now that animal sentience - the ability of animals to have positive and negative experiences like pain, distress or pleasure - is recognised in UK law, portraying live animals to UK viewers in this way in I'm a Celebrity is out of sync with this progressive step back home.
