I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! is finally back on our screens and Sir Mo Farah is just the gift that keeps on giving.
Last night’s show saw the campmates arrive at Gwrych Castle – which will be their home for the next three weeks.
As they settled into castle life, the star-studded line-up which includes the likes of Shane Richie, Beverley Callard and Vernon Kay, took part in their first trial and even tucked into their first meal of… rabbit.
But according to reports, Sir Mo won’t be eating the same food as his fellow campmates due to his religious beliefs.
Reportedly Sir Mo, who is a Muslim, asked bosses if his food could be halal.
Halal refers to how meat is prepared according to Islamic rules. It is Arabic for permissible.
The Islamic form of slaughtering animals or poultry involves killing through a cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe.
During the process, a Muslim will recite a dedication, know as tasmiya or shahada.
ITV were reportedly happy to accommodate, just as they did with former contestant Amir Khan during his time on the show in 2017.
‘Mo told producers a long time ago about his food preferences, so they were prepared,’ A source told The Sun : ‘
‘He can’t eat certain food unless it’s prepared in the correct way according to his religion.’
Elsewhere in the show, it was revealed that soap star Shane and Radio 1 DJ Jordan North, were up to tackle the first official Bushtucker Trial of the series.
Hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly broke the news to them after they dealt with their first day in camp – and poor Jordan looked less than happy with the news.
Having already vomited in front of the nation out of pure fear after abseiling down a cliff face at the beginning of his time on the show, things look set to get even worse for him.
Meanwhile, Shane, who had won over fans with his cheeky chappy nature, still hadn’t done enough to be safe from the wrath of the viewers’ votes.
Either way, we can’t wait to watch them take on the trial tonight.
I’m A Celebrity returns tonight at 9pm on ITV.
