I’m A Celeb 2011: Freddie Starr will not be returning

HomeTV TalkI’m A Celeb 2011: Freddie Starr will not be returning

Freddie Starr will not be returning to the jungle after suffering an allergic reaction during the first bushtucker trial.

It’s believed he became unwell after consuming a dodgy fermented egg during the ‘Greasy Spoon’ competition with fellow celebrity Mark Wright.

The egg was the first meal in a set of five. Freddie ate all five meals – including pig’s anus, camel toe, turkey testicle, mice tails and that EGG.

Starr, who had a quadruple bypass following a heart attack last year, complained of feeling sick and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital in New South Wales.

ITV said: “Producers of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! have decided that Freddie Starr won’t return to live in the jungle.

“Freddie has been a terrific contestant and his Bushtucker Trial is one of the stand-out moments in the history of the series and we wish him all the very best.”
