Animal activists have slammed I'm a Celebrity Get Me out of here after reality TV star Ferne McCann was asked to eat a live spider as part of the series finale last night.
The Only Way is Essex star ate the Australian waterspider as part of her last Bushtucker Trial - and we don’t know about you, but we watched the entire segment from behind a pillow.
A spokeswoman from PETA said: "Time and time again, this programme has shown a complete disregard for sentient life and a lack of creativity, evidenced by the fact that it has repeated the same tacky and inhumane stunts for more than a decade.
"All animals - not just the ones who are considered cute and cuddly - want to live free from harm”.
The organisation also threatened to take legal action against the show: "It's time for the producers to be called not just before the court of public opinion but also before a court of law."
The star - who finished in third place - was first given the option to tuck into some profiteroles instead but decided that she would prefer to secure a last meal for her camp.
Fearne also devoured a live witchetty grub, lamb’s brains and a bull’s penis, as part of the task.
And it wasn’t just PETA that expressed their distaste:
I tell you what, Fearne McCann is that toughest person on the planet. I would not have eaten that spider for a million pounds #IACGMOOH— James Bennett (@Boddiggler) December 6, 2015
