I'm A Celebrity


Through the years I’ve always enjoyed I’m A Celebrity, I love seeing the challenges and ridiculous scenarios the celebs go through.  However there has always been a level of animal cruelty that didn’t sit well with me.  It is probably the only reality show I watch (which often means I don’t know who most of the contestants are since there is a constant stream of reality stars willing to go into the jungle).  My last straw was when Ferne McCann ate a live spider, I turned off and haven’t watched since this year.
It’s one thing making people eat testicles and butt-holes of dead animals (I don’t eat meat, so I still couldn’t do that) but eating live insects really gets to me.  When I started watching I’m A Celeb years ago I didn’t really think about it because I was at school and it was just insects, right?  Well I was wrong.  The episode where Ferne McCann ate the spider really upset me in particular because she had to scare the spider so it would curl into a small ball… but surely if you need to scare it, you know it has feelings?  I’m sure some of you will be reading this thinking I’m a sensitive little snowflake but opinions are like arseholes, we all have one.

I hope ITV change their format this year and for all years to come.  I read this quote recently and I cannot agree more:

‘Animal rights are not a gift we give to animals.  It is a birth right we have taken from them’

In the name of entertainment, should we be taking away animal rights?
