Charlene White, 42, baffled I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers last night as she refused to sleep in an RV with Matt Hancock, despite the former Health Secretary awarding her the position of deputy leader. But the Loose Women star may have landed herself in hot water as her family, who currently run her social media channels, have started a campaign for her to do a Bushtucker trial if she continues to refuse to sleep in the RV.
One tweet sent from her account read: “I defo think @_OwenWarner should scoop Charlene up and put her in the hammock #ImACeleb.”
A follow-up post in response to a fan suggesting she could sleep in the RV instead read: “Hammock looks way more comfy tbf.
“Char should be slumming it, not laying in comfort.”
Charlene’s Twitter handler then shared a screenshot of the voting screen on the show’s app, showing they had voted for Charlene to do a trial.
The photo was captioned: “Sorry Char but either you sleep in the RV or Hammock or we vote for you to do a trial.”
Charlene’s refusal to sleep in the RV sparked complaints from viewers claiming there had been a “rule break” on Charlene’s part.
Gemma wrote on Twitter: “@imacelebrity @antanddec in the past campmates have been penalised if they didn’t obey the rules.
“So why has Charlene been allowed to not stay in the RV?!” she asked incredulously. (sic)
In view of their 6.8 million followers, Ant and Dec jumped to the ITV star’s defence, explaining that sleeping in the RV was not a requirement.
The hosts: “The rules said that only the leader and deputy are allowed to stay in the RV, it didn’t state they HAD to… #ImACeleb.”
The presenting duo read comments from viewers, who thought that the newsreader had broken camp rules, on an Instagram Live yesterday.
“Why would she not want to sleep in there, it can’t just be because of the spider,” Ant said.
“Is it because you don’t want to sleep next to Matt? Is that it?”
“You’ve got to think of the other people that have to then sleep in a hammock because of your actions and then have a bad back.
“Then you’ve got to look at your actions, don’t you?” he added.
After reading through comments, Ant jokingly continued: “It is against the rules they said… Well yeah, maybe.
“I think maybe she is and I am going to speak to the producers about it.”
Dec added: “I am not sure it is playing as a team member taking up a bed.”
Some fans were outraged with what they have perceived to be a “selfish” decision by Charlene.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
