After Jordan North and Ruthie Henshall won scotch eggs for the camp, viewers were quick to comment that Beverley could be seen tucking into the treat, despite being a vegan and only eating fruit and vegetables during an eating trial.

One person tweeted: "The UK watching Bev eating her scotch egg after telling the nation she’s vegan," while another added: "As if 'vegan' Bev is eating a scotch egg on #ImACeleb." 

However, Ant and Dec were quick to put the complaints to bed on their own Twitter account, writing: "She got a vegan one tbf. D #imacelebrity."

The latest episode saw Shane Richie and Vernon Kay discuss how Jessica Plummer and Jordan North have been scared of the trials, suggesting that they shouldn't have come on the show.

Shane's son, Shane Jr, has taken to Twitter to defend his dad, writing: "Yes that’s right folks , my dads human and isn’t a cheeky chappy 24/7. Christ some of the comments on here making him looking like the devil."
