While Charlene White was given the chance to have a more comfortable sleep in the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! camp by sleeping in an RV with Matt Hancock, her decision to turn it down has seen her come under fire.
On Sunday night’s episode of the series, the Loose Women panellist was told that as the deputy camp leader, she would not only be exempt from chores, but would be sleeping in the RV on site alongside camp leader Hancock until further notice.
As she said, being on the show has thrown up some surprises.
‘At the start of the year no-one could have make me believe that by the end of the year I would end up sharing a room with Matt Hancock,’ she said.
‘So you know, it’s all a journey.’
However, when inspecting her new digs, she was less than impressed to discover spiders in the camper, and even noticed one in her bed.
Squealing, she exclaimed: ‘I can’t do this tonight.’
Later speaking in the Bush Telegraph, Charlene said that her ‘bravery levels are done for today’.
‘I really don’t want to have to sleep in the RV,’ she added while tearing up.
The next night she also chose to again stay in her hammock.
‘I look forward to going to bed when I’m sleeping outside and I prefer it outside weirdly,’ she said.
‘I know I have this deputyship and am supposed to sleep in the RV, but it’s just not going to happen.’
While Charlene told Hancock she didn’t want to stay there because of the creepy crawlies, those watching along at home suggested it was because she didn’t want to sleep near the politician – and they weren’t impressed.
‘As Charlene refused to sleep with Matt in the RV, they should make the camp lose all their stars from tomorrow’s trial as a punishment,’ one user wrote on Twitter.
‘You won’t sleep in the RV but you’ll happily eat the man’s food,’ they added.
‘Why has Charlene not been punished for not sleeping in the RV? She breaking the rules??Or is it one rule for one and different for the rest?,’ some-one else said.
‘Will Charlene / the celebrities be penalised for not sleeping in the RV? I’m sure in previous years they’ve classed things like that as a “rule break” and there’s been some sort of punishment for it?,’ another person questioned.
However others defended her decision.
While they seem to be getting along, Charlene didn’t waste any time grilling Hancock when he first entered the camp, saying that ‘sorry doesn’t really cut it’.
‘I get that you fell in love, I understand all of those things, but sorry for a lot of families like mine doesn’t really cut it,’ she said.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues tonight night at 9pm on ITV.
