I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! viewers were treated to their first eating challenge of the year last night [17 November], which saw Jordan North, Vernon Kay and Beverley Callard consuming gruesome delicacies in return for stars.

But instead of witchetty grubs or kangaroo testicles like in the Australian jungle, the celebrities were faced with some more local gross things, like a cow udder and sheep brain.

And while they nailed the challenge and brought home a full house, viewers couldn't help but notice the food options Beverley faced were a little different to usual - she had to ea fermented tofu and fermented plums, rather than any animal parts.

This was because the Coronation Street actress is a vegan. To be fair, she shouldn't be expected to break her veganism just for a TV show, but that didn't stop fans calling out the show on Twitter.

"Why do I have a feeling everyone is going to be vegan on next series of #ImACeleb," one person wrote, while someone else added, "Beverley turning vegan is an absolute master stroke! How come nobody’s thought of it before? #ImACeleb"

A third said, "Wtf was that #ImACeleb trial... Beverley definitely got the easier options there like being vegan."

The eating trial comes as Jordan North's friend and Help I Sexted My Boss podcast co-presenter William Hanson revealed what we're seeing from the BBC Radio 1 presenter is all genuine.

He told Metro.co.uk: "One person put really weirdly, 'I’ve got a really good radar for BS', well, you don’t because Jordan is being genuine," William insisted. "There was no level of acting [with the snake trial]. With Jordan in general, what you see is what you get.

"He wears his heart on his sleeve, there is no veneer. He’s so happy go lucky, he’s a people pleaser as well. He’s coming across exactly like the Jordan I met 10 years ago."
