I’m A Celebrity: “Rats Animal Cruelty Gino…”
Apparently the wildlife-loving Aussies were angered when the celebrity chef and the ex-Hollyoaks star beheaded the rodent before feeding it to their campmates.
We think Kim might have tasted a bit nicer…
The News of The World today claimed that the two were arrested immediately after the end of filming and the animal rights body have seized tapes from producers so they can “investigate the rat’s death”.
“There were rats used for the bushtucker trials and they were as tame as hamsters,” a source said. “They were used to human contact and not afraid like wild ones who would run away. The killing made for dramatic TV. But it’s likely the animal was one of the trial rats.”
Meanwhile, D’Acampo, who was previously jailed for nicking guitars from Paul Young’s home, was reportedly worried that he wouldn’t be able to leave the country.
“Gino was detained so long his family, including his two young boys, had to travel back to the hotel without him,” a source claimed. “He has previous convictions and is terrified of getting into more trouble with the authorities. But police say now he is free to go home.”
D’Acampo and Manning have allegedly been told to appear in court on February 3. If sentenced, they could face up to three years in jail.
Wouldn’t that make good TV…
