Before I begin, I will openly admit that I am prejudiced against the ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get me out of here’ programme, screened on ITV. I do not consider this, or other such programmes to be ‘entertainment’. Unfortunately, my wife likes to watch it, so while it is on, I turn my attention to something (anything) else.


I object to the sickening terror individuals are subjected to. No, I do not refer to the so-called ‘celebrities’, they know exactly what is in store for them when they sign the contracts to appear in this mind numbing utter tripe, I refer to the animals. I am not very keen on cockroaches, spiders and other such creepy-crawly’s, but they are animals all the same. As are the rats, snakes, frogs and crocodiles regularly abused on this programme. There is no doubt in my mind, that these unfortunate animals are far more terrified during their ordeal with these ‘has-beens’ than the alleged humans.


I was, however, glad that I was half watching the broadcast yesterday (27/11/09) to witness the final straw in my disgust at this complete and utter rubbish. So incensed was I, that I immediately sent an email to the ITV to complain.


In what they call a ‘bush tucker trial’ two ‘celebrities’ had to find keys hidden inside the bodies of fish. A box filled with, I would guess, more than 100 dead fish was rummaged through and the gizzards of the fish unceremoniously pulled out on to the jungle floor.


Whether these fish were caught for this purpose or bought from a fish market is irrelevant. These were once living animals. Had they been caught and used as food, I would have no objections, but to have died for the purpose of ‘entertainment’ I find sickening and abhorrent.

I quite agree, everything has a right to live and not be brutally killed, especially for entertainment purposes.

Couldn't agree more.
