Ant and Dec told they should leave ITV I’m A Celeb by PETA Boss as the petition reaches 50,000 signatures

Boy George, Mike Tindall and Charlene White were among the celebrities who joined this year’s cast, which began Sunday night.

Geordie duo Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have directed the show for more than 20 years, which has seen celebrities camp out among rats, snakes and spiders in the Australian jungle.

The infamous Bushtucker Trials also feature jungle animals, which are often eaten alive by celebrities in court cases.

Animal rights organization PETA sent an open letter to Ant, 46, and Dec, 47, urging the couple to quit the show

Elisa Allen, PETA’s vice president of programs, has penned a letter accusing Ant and Dec of being “involved in animal cruelty”.

The letter reads: “For 20 years you have been involved in the ‘Bushtucker Trials’ and have watched as animals of all kinds are tortured – and even killed – for television ratings.

“In that time you must have become aware of the suffering, discomfort and fear endured by these involuntary participants during the challenges. Ostriches, crocodiles, snakes, rats and thousands of insects have been exploited for the show’s childish pranks – and we fear the upcoming series will be no different.”

The letter then urges the couple to make the upcoming All Stars series their last to “signal to the show’s producers that people will no longer stand behind senseless animal cruelty and that it’s time for a change.” “.

PETA’s letter said their petition urging ITV bosses to “stop abusing animals” on I’m A Celeb has garnered more than 50,000 signatures.
