Fans are furious after learning that three celebrities won't have to eat gruelling local delicacies during their time in the jungle.

Fleur East, James McVey and Sair Khan are exempt from taking part in Bushtucker Trials where they may have to eat animals it's been revealed.

It's believed the three celebrities have all been given the green light in their contracts to pass on any tasks that might involve them eating animal products if they don't want to.

Every year, contestants are made to eat a number of gruelling dishes from Witchetty grubs and meal worms to fish eyes and crocodile genitals.

A source told them: “It could prove a bit tricky for bosses if they refuse to do the eating Bushtucker Trials.

"Fleur has already told bosses that she is strictly vegan and does not go near any  animal products. It’s certainly not ideal.”

It's not yet clear whether Nick Knowles, who describes himself as "somewhat vegan" will be excluding himself from any trials, however Sair has already decided to loosen her vegan ideals after being seen tucking into emu meat.

Sair was part of the red team with fellow campates Harry Redknapp, John Barrowman, Nick Knowles and Malique Thompson-Dwyer.

They became victorious in the trail against the yellow team, who were forced to reside in Snake Rock and live on basic rations of rice and beans.
