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

Updated on Tuesday 15 November 2011 by @TVNewsroom

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.”
