Loose Women’s Charlene White was defended by Ant and Dec today after fans complained about her “rule break” on the show. The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star has refused to sleep in an RV with Matt Hancock, despite the former Health Secretary awarding her the privileged position of deputy leader. 

I’m A Celeb fans have been complaining over what they feel has been a “rule break” on Charlene’s part. 

Gemma wrote on Twitter: “@imacelebrity @antanddec in the past campmates have been penalised if they didn’t obey the rules.

“So why has Charlene been allowed to not stay in the RV?!” she asked incredulously. (sic)

In view of their 6.8 million followers, Ant and Dec replied: “The rules said that only the leader and deputy are allowed to stay in the RV, it didn’t state they HAD to… #ImACeleb.”

It comes after the news that Ant and Dec were due to speak to producers about Charlene’s “rule-breaking”.

Camp leader Matt chose Charlene as his deputy, which meant she is supposed to sleep in a bed in the same RV as him.

After her emotional refusal to do so, the hosts read comments from viewers, who thought that the newsreader had broken camp rules, on an Instagram Live yesterday. 

“Why would she not want to sleep in there, it can’t just be because of the spider,” Ant said.

“Is it because you don’t want to sleep next to Matt? Is that it?” 

“You’ve got to think of the other people that have to then sleep in a hammock because of your actions and then have a bad back. 

“Then you’ve got to look at your actions, don’t you?” he added.

After reading through comments, Ant jokingly continued: “It is against the rules they said… Well yeah, maybe.

“I think maybe she is and I am going to speak to the producers about it,” while Dec added: “I am not sure it is playing as a team member taking up a bed.”

Some fans were outraged with what they have perceived to be a “selfish” decision by Charlene, given that the rest of the camp were forced to sleep on uncomfortable beds. 

Lou wrote: “That seems like kick in the teeth to other camp mates when she refuses to sleep in nice comfortable bed.” (sic)

Ellie added: “Am i the only one thinking charlene is being selfish af??” (sic)

While former I’m A Celeb contestant Jake Quickenden weighed in: “Nothing has ever annoyed me more than Charlene not going in the RV.”

“Charlene just sleep in the RV. She is being so selfish,” Ryan commented. 

While I’m A Celeb fan Abbie pointed out how Charlene was being unfair in forcing her fellow campates to alternate beds due to her decision.


I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!  airs at 9pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
